backburner rendering issues

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I am trying to render scene with growfx on the render farm on backburner. I have the latest version of backburner installed.  the scene renders fine on the machine with the activated license both locally and on the farm. however after I installed the growfx render node version on the render nodes (there are six nodes) I cannot render the scene and have been getting the error "the pipe has ended" error. Is there a fix for this?

Do i need to activate the render node software?


No, maybe you've installed the full version? Please check the installation folder (C:\Program Files\Exlevel\GrowFX_3dsMax_2014\), it should contain only the files GrowFX_RenderNode.dlo, EL_Helpers.dlo and possibly other files. But there should NOT be GrowFX.dlo!

Yes, it's fixed in GrowFX 1.9.9 Beta.

Now installer checks for the GrowFX_Rendernode.dlo file, if this file exists, it will be removed. Also, for both versions (Full and Rendernode) used only GrowFX.dlo, so this file will be replaced during the upgrade...
