Mtoa diagnostics log not outputting filename of the rendered image file.

Hi,

I'm rendering a sequence on the render farm. I recently updated mtoa arnold to 3.0.1 and now the renderfarm can't preview the rendered images. I found out that the render log doesn't output the filename anymore.

// [mtoa.translator] exr: Parameter filename is hidden on Arnold node defaultArnoldDriver@driver_exr(driver_exr).

This is what I get in the logs. I get the filename if I set the verbosity level to debug but I can't just set that as default. Is there a way to get the filename visible with verbosity level "warning" or "info"?

Thanks.

The filename is output after the render finishes.

From a log with Info level verbosity:

00:00:01 1986MB | [driver_exr] writing file `D:/Projects/maya/Support/images/tmp/torus_test_1.exr'

[mtoa.translator] is from MtoA during scene translation, while [driver_exr] is from the actual Arnold node that writes the output file.
