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 Terragen specific options are:

  • Project File: The Terragen project file to render.
  • Render Node: Select the render node to render. Leave blank to use the default in the project.
  • Output: Override the output path in the project file. If rendering a sequence of frames, remember to include the %04d format in the output file name so that padding is added to each frame.
  • Extra Output: Override the extra output path in the project file. If rendering a sequence of frames, remember to include the IMAGETYPE.%04d format in the output file name so that padding is added to each frame.
  • Enable Local Rendering: If enabled, the frames will be rendered locally, and will then be copied to the final network location. Note that this requires that an Output file be specified above.
  • Version: The version of Terragen.
