Submission Options

The general Deadline options are explained in the Job Submission documentation, and the Draft/Integration options are explained in the Draft and Integration documentation. The Rendition specific options are:

  • Input MI File: The MI file to render. This needs to be on a network location, since Rendition often saves the output file(s) relative to the input MI file location.
  • Output File: Optionally override the output file.
  • Build To Force: Force 32 bit or 64 bit rendering.
  • Skip Existing Frames: If existing images should be skipped.
  • Additional Cmd Line Args: Additional command line arguments to pass to Rendition during rendering.

Plug-in Configuration

You can configure the Rendition plug-in settings from the Monitor. While in super user mode, select Tools -> Configure Plugins and select the Rendition plug-in from the list on the left.

Render Executables

  • Rendition Executable: The path to the Rendition executable file used for rendering. Enter alternative paths on separate lines.

FAQ

Why do the image format options (like color depth) get reverted to defaults when rendering with Deadline?

This only happens when overriding the output file in the submission script. When we pass the output path to Rendition, it uses the default image format options for the output type. If you don’t want this to occur, simply don’t override the output file.
