I’m running into a render farm issue with Team Render.
I’m using C4D R25, Turbulence FD version v1.0-1484, and Redshift 3.0.67 (and yes, all versions are the same on the Render Farm). It’s just a little home render farm setup with two PC’s, and I’m using Windows 10.
The issue is… ‘Machine B’ (entirely a render node) is unable to access the Turbulence FD cache, and thus does not include Turbulence in the scene.
I made a video explaining this issue here…
I save all my Turbulence caches to an external hard drive (because they take up an insane amount of space). I’ve made it to the external hard drive (which is plugged into my main ‘Machine A’ PC via USB) is accessible to ‘Machine B’ via the Network.
For the ‘Machine B’ render node to access the Cache, it needs to look at the following destination…
\Desktop-bk5nqme\f\Turbulence FD Caches\Test Cache 01
I’ve SET that pathway in the TurbulenceFD Container’ (in ‘Container / Cache / Simulation Cache’). But ‘Machine B’ INSISTS it is unable to access the cache, saying…
TFD ERROR: CacheFrameGuard::load(): render server request failed for “\Desktop-bk5nqme/f\Turbulence FD Caches\Test Cache 01\Cache 001\d22e58a49c598f9427dab56c363b2dfbtrb_sim_cache_0000000000.bcf”
TFD ERROR: Failed to load frame 0 from cache “\Desktop-bk5nqme/f\Turbulence FD Caches\Test Cache 01\Cache 001” for object TurbulenceFD Container
What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks for any help!
