Hello ! I have a scene with motion blur enabled and after 23 frames houdini crash, if I disable motion blur he make the render.

If i try to render the frame 23 alone no problems if I restart from frame 23, later he crash, Arnold log record nothing but there is the houdini log

Did you find a solution yet? I have the same crash with the same configuration as yours. Houdini 18.5 on Linux. Same crash code. In my case I don’t know if motion blur is related. It rendered okay, then it started crashing on one of the first few frames in the sequence randomly.

i think autodesk know this problem but they don't have a solution at this time

i've tried on grid market and is the same problem on 5 computers with motion blur, i'm done with arnold i don't renew my license and go to redshift

there is an answer from grid markets support

"Judging from what I'm seeing, this is actually a reasonably common error with Arnold and I'm not finding a cause or a solution. Here is a link to a post on Autodesk about a very similar occurrance. "

Years ago i'm used arnold with C4d before autodesk i dont have any problem now i've always have a problem with Arnold , withblur, licencing, generate tx file when he want or other radom bug.

Arnold is a great render engine but, to have a good help or support it's really hard when you're an indie i can't wait too much for an answer and i need to work and render my project

most of the people here are helped and thak you to all me but Arnold for houdini have a lot of problems and arnold answer is not the best way to be helped

after 3 month of work on this project and cant find a solution for arnold i do my blur in nuke and next project will be another render engine maybe redshift or renderman and renderman is free...
