How to render DeepEXR on Solaris

I'm currently trying to render DeepEXR on Solaris using HtoA 6.0.1.0.

I found that the Render Var LOP and Render Product LOP have a Deep setting.

But I can only render regular EXR, not DeepEXR.

What settings do I need to render DeepEXR?

Thank you.

Hi!

You need to go to the render product and change the product type from "raster" to "deep". That'll make the outputted exr file deep and all AOVs deep AOVs.

Thank you for your reply.

I immediately tried the Render Product settings and no EXR was output. EXR can be output by returning the setting to raster. Maybe something is still missing. I've attached the HIP file I used for testing and the rendering logs.

Thank you.

Hello was a solution found to this? When I change the Render Product "Product Type" to deep, no image gets outputted. Do we need to change/add something else somewhere?

No, I got a deep exr with just Render Product > Product Type = deep

After setting Product Type to Deep, I get this error:

<b style='color: red;'>[14:49:20] No AOVs defined for render, not all delegates will function properly</b>

I do have rgba Render Var specified, it works in raster mode.

Anything else is required?

Yes, but is an EXR still rendered?

I've seen that "No AOVs defined for render" but the deep EXR was still rendered to disk.

  • Create a Render Product and change the Product Type to deep
  • Under Render Product > Arnold > Deep, set the deep driver parameters
  • Under Render Product > Arnold > Deep Filter, set the filter used for each deep aov (there is one filter for all the aovs used in a deep driver)
  • Set up Render Vars and add them to the Render Product
  • Under Render Var > Arnold > Deep, set the aov-specific parameters

An example scene is attached.

There is one issue with filename padding when rendering more then 1 frame via husk with -n parameter.

All deep file outputs are written to the first file of the sequence.

Not sure if its husk problem or "HdArnoldRendererPlugin".

Attached hip file and husk command

husk --make-output-path -f 1 -n 10 -R "HdArnoldRendererPlugin" --purpose "geometry,render" --complexity "veryhigh" --snapshot 1000 "..../usdrender_16736_32_6/__render__.usd"deep_rendering_v2.zip

I think you need to use <F> instead of $F

That works for the "non-deep" renders. And the deep too, but husk is crashing after the third frame, with no messages or anything (but I can see that it calls WerFault on Windows).
