Ipr not working on houdini but render yes and watermark problem

Hi I'm on houdini 18.0.391 I've been working on a scene for a few months, I have several nodes for rendering, when I want to try to render in a rendering tab nothing happens.



But if I render my scene, no problem. I don't understand why it does this before I have this problem, it always worked well. It's not good for my workflow now and I'm wasting my time.



And another thing, I render several images, and a random watermark appears on my images and I need to re-render those images...



What's wrong with it? Can you help me, please?

For the Render View, the Arnold log will be in the Houdini console. So on Linux, start Houdini from a Houdini terminal.
Or enable file logging in the Arnold ROP > Properties > Diagnostics.


For the random single-user license failures, I would enable Arnold ROP > Properties ?> System > Abort on License Fail

Then you won't spend time rendering a watermarked frames.

Houdini 13.0.91 ?

What version of Houdini? Htoa?

What operating system?

What kind of license? There are three kinds (RLM, Autodesk single user, and Autodesk Flexlm multi-user/network)

Can you get a detailed Arnold log? See sidebar for a link to the instructions for getting an Arnold log?
