Hi Adam,

This is a known issue and the next release will address this. Could you turn off abort_on_error for now to help with the farm issue?

Hey Julian, thanks for the response. We can turn off abort_on_error but have a relatively new workflow which might bring up other errors which we would need to abort the render. When we're closer to finalising our work we will turn it off. Thanks

Hello, we are rendering an HDA light-rig of the farm, the light rig is controlled by an alembic-xform of our animated geometry. We keep getting this error:

00:02:37 19308MB ERROR | /obj/lightRig/L_led_0003_LGT: non-flat quad lights are not supported

on only certain frames. It seems to be random, but the error is consistent and completely errors the task off the farm. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? We have rebuilt the rig to no avail.
