Job Submission

You can submit REDLine jobs from the Monitor. REDLine is the command line tool that ships with Redcine-X, and previously with REDAlert.


Submission Options

The general Deadline options are explained in the Job Submission documentation. The REDLine specific options are:

  • Input R3D File: Specify the R3D file you want to render.
  • Output Folder: The folder where the output files will be saved.
  • Output Filename: The prefix portion of the output filename. It is not necessary to specify the extension.
  • Output Format: The output format. This will determine the filename extension.
  • Render Resolution: The resolution to render at.
  • Make Output Subfolder: Makes subdirectory for each output.
  • Frame List: The list of frames to render if rendering an animation.
  • Renumber Start Frame: The new start frame number (optional).
  • Frames Per Task: The number of frames per task.
  • Submit Input R3D File With Job: If checked, the input file is submitted with the job to the repository.

Deadline basically supports all the options that are available in the Redcine-X application. It also supports the ability to specify RSX files to use when rendering, so you can set your options in Redcine-X and then use them to render the job through Deadline. Please refer to your Redcine-X documentation for more information about these additional render options.

Plug-in Configuration

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


Render Executables

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


Is Redcine-X/REDAlert supported by Deadline?

Yes. Both applications ship with a command line application called REDLine, which Deadline uses to render.

Which Operating System(s) can I render REDLine jobs with?

Currently, REDLine is available on Windows and OSX, so you can render REDLine jobs on these operating systems.
