Batch Render Job


We’re having an issue where if we have several camera setups and bake them to individual 3dsmax files so we can submit them manually in deadline, they will error out and won’t render.
If we bake them as a batch render, we can use the Deadline Batch option and works well, but it takes forever.
The first process where we submitted the individually baked 3dsmax files used to work but not anymore. Could you help us? Let me know what info you need

3dsmax 2021
Corona 9
Scene Manager 2.2.19

Thank you


Any help with this?

Thank you

Hi @info4

Could you please elaborate on “they will error out and won’t render”. It will help us to understand what is going on. Does it happen to all the files or just with one project?

This happens will all the files. From what we can tell the error doesn’t say much:

Hi @info4

Thanks for the error, unfortunately as you said it is not too helpful :confused: I would recommend you to report this to Deadline they can probably help you out. Btw, the issue sounds very similar to this topic: Batch Render cannot be submitted to Deadline

Hi @peter.sarhidai

That topic sounds very familiar indeed. I’ll give it a bump to see if the users found a solution
