PRB: Renderer Exits Prematurely When Using soft -R -j

Last reviewed: July 11, 1997
Article ID: Q171201

The information in this article applies to:

  • Softimage 3D for IRIX, version 3.51

SYMPTOMS

When running soft -R with the -j option in SOFTIMAGE 3D v3.51, it eventually causes soft -R to exit or hang.

CAUSE

Softimage has found a memory leak when you run soft -R -j. If you restart soft -R with the same parameters, you will encounter the same problem.

For example, if you know that soft -R crashed at frame 100 in a sequence of 1 to 1000, do not restart soft -R with -j -s 1 1000 1 because it will go through 100 skips.

RESOLUTION

The workaround is to use a script that renders with -j in increments such as the following example:

soft -R -j -s 1 100 1 soft -R -j -s 101 200 1 soft -R -j -s 201 300 1

etc.

STATUS

This problem is fixed in SOFTIMAGE 3D v3.7.
