Setup your rs Files

Before you can submit a Redshift Standalone job, you must export your scene into .rs files such as via the MayaBatch in-app submitter. Typically, one .rs file per frame is exported.

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 Redshift specific options are:

  • Redshift File: The Redshift file(s) to be rendered. If you are submitting a sequence of .rs files, select one of the numbered frames in the sequence, and the frame range will automatically be detected.

  • Frame List: The list of frames to render. If you are submitting a sequence of .rs files, the frames you choose to render should correspond to the numbers in the .rs files.

  • Calculate Frames From Redshift File: If enabled, the frame list will be calculated based on the selected input file.

  • Render Options File: Optional. Overrides render options using a text file. The text file should contain pairs of options on each line. ie:

    UnifiedMaxSamples 1500
    UnifiedFilterSize 3.4
    
  • Image Output Directory: Optional. Overrides the image output directory. If left blank, Redshift will save the image output to the folder defined in the .rs file.

  • PBT Output Directory: Optional. Overrides the point-based technique output directory. If left blank, Redshift will save the point-based technique output to the folder defined in the .rs file.

  • Cache Directory: Optional. Overrides the cache path folder. If left blank, Redshift will output to the default cache path folder.

  • Texture Cache Budget (MB): Optional. Sets the texture cache size (in megabytes). If set to 0, will use the default texture cache budget.

  • GPUs Per Task: The number of GPUs to use per task. If set to 0, the default number of GPUs will be used.

  • Select GPU Devices: A comma separated list of the GPUs to use specified by the device id. ‘GPUs Per Task’ will be ignored. ie. ‘0’ or ‘1’ or ‘0,2’ or ‘0,3,4’ etc.

  • Version: The version of Redshift to render with.
