This is an OpenVDB warning (not an errro) and the message is logged by OpenVDB

cannot read metadata "file_delayed_load" of unregistered type "__delayedload"

maybe arnold's openVDB version is too low.


Version 6.2.0 - September 18, 2019

New features:
  • Added FindActiveValues, which counts the active values in a tree that intersect a given bounding box.
  • Added DelayedLoadMetadata, which stores mask offsets and compression sizes on write to accelerate delayed load reading.

The problem is with the ass file
Here is the same ass file rendered in maya without pb, but not in Houdini!

The solution I found is re save again the ass file in houdini,

Does this happen with all scenes? And is it just the Render View, or do all renders have the same errors?

Can you post the full Arnold log?

hard to say, what format is your render procedural: ass file, obj, alembic?
