AOV Split

Unread postby dane » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:42 am

(using 4.0 SP1 and previous versions)

Generally we write out a multi channel EXR containing all AOVs, unless those files become too large, then we split them out as an EXR sequence per AOV.

Currently rendering 3.5k with a normal amount of AOV's and Utilities come out at 1GB per frame. We want to split out the AOVs but it doesn't seem to be working when ticking the 'Split AOVs in separate files' box in the In/Out preferences. Do I need to do something else to enable this? We are rendering on Deadline, so maybe we need to do something there for it to know how to handle this?

Thanks,

Dan

Hi,

Did you specify a config file to use when rendering with Deadline? Split AOV preference is stored in the config file (application preferences) so you have to specify this config file to use when launching on Deadline. (-config_file path/to/the/config_file.config)

Cheers ;)
