Been looking into the Deadline addon, and I was hoping to do some changes and see the results directly on Deadline immediately but it doesn’t seem to be the case.
Just for context, I’m using a custom developer bundle, and I am accessing the launcher with the flags
What I was testing currently was just seeing if I can change the default priority (60 instead of 50) upon submission. So using Nuke in this particular test
That didn’t work. There is also an
Optional toggle there, that didn’t seem to affect anything either (not sure what it does tbh)
I noticed below that there is a
Process submitted job on farm. option so I set that priority to 60 also. That also didn’t work
I also tried supplying a new addon directory, where I modified the preset priority to 60, that doesn’t work as well
Also a confusing part is that even with the toggle on showing the path, it still shows the default version that is on the server. Some testing here shows that if I put a fake path on there, Deadline add-on doesn’t load (via the ayon_console.exe, so I guess it is referencing the provided path) but putting an add-on in there doesn’t explicitly indicate anywhere (like the ayon_console.exe) that it is using the custom path.
I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong since no matter whatever Priority option that I’m changing the default prio it isn’t being reflected in Deadline when submitted. I was wondering if you guys have any idea or perhaps I’m missing something here?
Secondly there seems to be something a bit of a confusing with the launcher. When building the launcher, by doing a git pull of the code, it will create a
beta.8 which isn’t actually a release according to the release page. We had to build from the source code to create a
I figured I should point that out if anyone else is noticing they are building beta.8 instead of 7.
PS. I’m doing a clean exit of the launcher upon each change, not sure if it is necessary, but doing that to at least cover my bases.
