Just saying Thanks March 27, 2019, 5:21 p.m.

as we get more and more bugs fixed and learn how to use TOPS/PDGS together, I just wanted to say…

This is a great feature and I think we've only scratched the surface of its capabilities. Thank you for all those involved in bringing this to us and we as a community are appreciative of your dedication and great work.

Yes That is exactly the issue.

and to fix it on the PythonModule of the simpleBaker rop in ropnet1 I had to adjust it to read the index attrib into the pre and post bake functions with the code above :

index = str (node.parm(“index”).eval())
host_name = socket.gethostname() + index

then I plumbed through the @wedgeindex into the parm which gave each job its own temp file.

I just baked 60 asset variations in one go. works well when its working.
troubleshooting it was a MindBonker ! it was really difficult knowing where the problem originated from as the feedback was minimal (or atleast I didn't know where to look at first )

ok I got this working, but I had to make a new hda with modified python code
basically I added a parameter to the rop baker which is called index
then shove @wedgeindex in it and reference it via channel params in the file (although this may be unnecessary based on the next step)
then in the PythonModule script I added

index = str (node.parm(“index”).eval())
host_name = socket.gethostname() + index
