SubmitToDeadline comes in two variants, both fully featured and site-wide installations:

-Full version compiled with Free updates for the Major version of SubmitToDeadline.

-Full version with editable source code.

Mantra jobs are by default split into two jobs (Batch translation and Mantra Render).

Arnold and Redshift are submitted as Batch jobs (Scenes are not translated on the farm).

Enable ‘Render as Batch Job’ in order to submit Mantra as a single batch Job.

This option is Forced On on Limited Commercial and Apprentice.

All most common rops are supported including Alembic, Redshift, Arnold.

Fetch is support is experimental (currently only supports rop inputs).

SubmitToDeadline can run from any Rop network, including Rop networks part of other contexts.

Set ‘Render Hip Folder’ to ‘.’ and uncheck ‘Append timestamp to Render Hip File’ in order to submit the current hip file rather than a render copy.

Check ‘Initialize Simulation OPs’ on rops in order to submit rops as simulations (one chunk).

ExtraVar and ExtraInfo fields accept $ and * as special characters:
i.e. \$HOU*
i.e. \$USERNAME
i.e. \$USERNAME = myUser

SubmitToDeadline’s Hda must be sourceable by all render slaves in use.

SubmitToDeadline currently supports clustering but not slicing.
