color_manager_syncolor is missing

Hello everyone

I dont know what i might have done, but I suddenly I started to get this error when rendering with Maya2017 and MtoA. It was working fine before.

Has anyone else ran into this before?

A lot of my texture conversions are also failing, im not sure if its related to the missing color node. Seems unlikely.

Nevermind. Too much coffee apparently. I was not setting the ARNOLD_PLUGIN_PATH properly.

Thanks for your help. You guys rock

Hi Stephen

I looked at my logs and I dont see a line where the syncColor_shaders.dyloib file is loaded. All other mtoa shaders seem to be loading.

I tried adding the shaders from arnold standalone to the ARNOLD_PLUGIN_PATH but the shader is not there either.

Please help. We are getting close to our delivery date and I really need to get this working.

Cheers and thanks for your help

The startup log looks ok.

When you render, there must be an error in the log about synColor_shaders.dylib. Normally, if verbosity is set to Warnings + Info, you would see this:

| synColor_shaders.dyloib: color_manager_syncolor uses Arnold 5.0.1.5

There must be something different in your render log. Can you check the Arnold log for a render (if you use the Arnold Render View, select View > Log > Full before you render) ?

The other thing I would do is this: open a terminal and run this command:

sudo dtruss -f -n Maya

Then go back to Maya and render a frame.

There will be a ton of stuff logged in the Terminal. Copy it all to a text file.

Finally, run this MEL command in the script editor:

system( "printenv" )

so we can check the environment.

Arnold is version 5.0.1.5
MtoA is version 2.0.2.4
It happens anytime I enable the color management setting in maya. Even with the simplests scenes.

The sycncolor node seems to be available

> color_manager_ocio color_manager color_manager_syncolor color_manager

and here is the entire startup log of maya, per your suggestion

What version of MtoA do you have?

Does this happen with any scene (like an empty scene) ?

Just to be sure, can you confirm that kick -nodes did list color_manager_syncolor ?

Can you get a startup log for MtoA? Open a terminal, and run these two commands:

export MTOA_STARTUP_LOG_VERBOSITY=2
/Applications/Autodesk/maya2017/Maya.app/Contents/MacOS/Maya

You can scroll up in the Terminal to select everything, and then paste it into a file, and attach that file to your reply.

Thanks for the response Stephen. I do see the shader available in the Arnold installation. When I run oTool, this is what I get.

oTool -L /Applications/solidangle/mtoa/2017/shaders/synColor_shaders.dylib

I needed to see the full log. I'm interested in what before the translation or the render.

Let's try it this way: open a Terminal and run this command:

/Applications/solidangle/mtoa/2017/bin/kick -nodes -l  /Applications/solidangle/mtoa/2017/shaders

Normally that should list color_manager_syncolor as one of the shader nodes.

Then run this

oTool -L /Applications/solidangle/mtoa/2017/shaders/synColor_shaders.dylib
