Hi Juanjo
I have issue with rendering animations in houdini + Octane Render. Houdini Indie version: 16.5.439 - Octane: 3.08 (plugin verision - Octane_3.08.0.10_Houdini_Win64).


I have created this growing structure animation, I have turn on "Full Scene Reload" and Octane rendering this correctly but only to Mplay. When I want to render only to Disc - Octane is overiting one image file. I i`m left with only last frame of animation. How can I change it ?


You can scene file here and rendring settings.
I hope that you will know solution.

Thank you in advance.
Tomasz

Hi,

Can you please replace the "." dot characters in the filename for "-" characters? I'm not sure why this filename is not expanded by Houdini at render time, but I'll investigate it. Perhaps the problem is related to the $HIP folder or the $HIPNAME file that have space characters or something like that.

Something like that as filename should work: $HIP/render/$HIPNAME-$OS-$F4, but you should try to don't use space characters in the folder or in the filenames.

Thanks,
-Juanjo
