Adobe After Effects CC 2014 Multi-machine rendering does not create RCF after Collect-File

This was working in the previous release.  After going through all of the steps to perform a multi-machine render, not only does it say it is limiting it to 5 machines instead of the usual 99 (and I have over 100 cores on the render farm) but "Collect Files" (File/Dependencies/Collect Files) does not create the Render Control File (RCF) that kicks off the process on the other machines, like it did before and is supposed to do.
This release was supposed to fix the 32 core limitation on render nodes (my server has 48), but now does nothing at all.
Anyway, I assume there is a check box somewhere that says "do something" that hasn't been checked and another that says "Maybe my machine has more than 5 cores", and I would appreciate being steered in the direction of these new mis-features.
Just as background, the 48 core server does show the little TV screen that monitors the watch folder, and I know for a fact that process looks for the "RCF" file.  Looking at the directory specified for "collect files", I can see that no RCF file is created, only 1 file, a report.txt file which contains this information is produced:

    BINGO !!!!
    Thanks so much Woodsroad. I had the exact same problem with my Dell Windows 7 64 bit with AMD Radeon 6700 Video card.
    All the video tests passed with flying colors.
    The sniffer rename trick fixed the problem.

  • Why does multi-machine rendering work so poorly?

    more specifically, watch folder rendering with multi-machines is pointless because skipping a frame seeming to take as long as rendering the frame, so one machine can never catch up to the other.  why does skipping a frame take some long?  i mean it's been in the software for like 10 years. is this not considered important?

    These two features are not intended to be used together.
    Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously multiprocessing is intended to turn a single computer into a self-contained render farm of sorts. Multi-machine rendering is intended to use multiple computers in a render farm. Attempting to use these two items together is mixing two different organizational schemes for managing the rendering of frames.

  • Warning that the GPU accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer does not have enough free memory to operate

    [UPDATE: Memory handling for the ray-traced 3D renderer is greatly improved by installing the After Effects CC (12.2) or After Effects CS6 (11.0.4) update.]
    You may see a warning message when using After Effects CC (12.1) that the GPU accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer does not have enough free memory to operate.
    When the GPU acceleration of the ray-traced 3D renderer is disabled, the CPU version of the ray-traced 3D renderer will operate.
    The message about the GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer not having enough free memory to operate is because of a change in After Effects CC (12.1) to actually warn you when your computer was in a dangerously low VRAM state. In After Effects CC (12.0) and After Effects CS6 (11.0), a computer with very little VRAM could still try to use the GPU accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer, but it would very, very, very often crash. So, now, After Effects CC (12.1) is just detecting the condition that would lead to a crash, telling you about it, and disabling the GPU acceleration until you have dealt with the problem.
    So, how do you deal with this low-memory condition? You free up VRAM. This means closing all applicaitons that use GPU memory, which includes web browsers (yes, web browsers these days use the GPU). It also means disconnecting additional monitors, each of which uses a lot of VRAM. In some cases, restarting the computer is necessary.
    This is primarily a problem on Mac OS with cards with 1GB of VRAM, such as the GT 650M in the MacBook Pro. These cards on this OS have just barely enough GPU memory (VRAM) to make use of the GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer under even the best of circumstances. If you want to use the GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer, you should really be using a more powerful GPU, one with more VRAM.
    Note that this has nothing to do with the OpenGL GPU features in After Effects. Details of the GPU features are here: http://blogs.adobe.com/aftereffects/2012/05/gpu-cuda-opengl-features-in-after-effects-cs6. html

    hey Todd
    i have the exact same problem but with my new macpro with renderay no matter what i do even a simple 3d extraction the renderay crashes! My cuda is full up to date and everything not sure why! if you have any way to resolve this issue would be awesome and help us out since i am on a deadline! at the moment!
    I have attached a few screen shots and my computer specs! as you can see the GPU Should not be running low on memory xD since its pretty much nearly full speced!
    The error!
    This is what was there! and all i added was a extractor after this and the error above appears!
    and this is my computer specs as you can see there is no lack of Power, Ram or VRAM here! so not sure why this error is occurring even after updating CUDA
    if you have anything else i could try please let me know! Thanks!

  • Premiere Pro CC 2014 Does Not Import Panasonic GH4 Spanned Files as a Single Clip

    Premier Pro CC 2014 does not import Panasonic GH4 spanned files as a single clip. I have made a short video that shows the problem with the GH4 footage and it show how the Canon XA-10 footage imports correctly.
    Is this a known problem? Am I doing something wrong? It makes the Master Clip Effects in Premier Pro useless because every spanning fragment is turned into a master clip.

    Jim,
    I've looked up all sorts of MP4/MOV comparisons on the web ... most conclude that mov is perhaps a bit "safer" on an Apple OS and mp4 "safer" on a PC and non-Apple "devices", but generally list the contents of the two as being nearly indistinguishable. I do realize the Qt has had ... issues ... within the Adobe programs, especially on PC's.
    You have any other good info? Always looking to learn from the more experienced ...

  • The time machine Icon does not does not show up in my menu bar

    The time machine icon does not appear in my menu bar. The desk top icon for the external hard drive is green. I've checked preferances and the time machine is turned on and the box is checked that has the icon appear in my menu. I've turned off the time machine and rebooted and then turned it on and rebooted again. Nothing seems to work. I'm running Mavericks and I have an Intel I5 processor.

    the box is checked that has the icon appear in my menu
    Uncheck it and check it again. Any change? If not, see below.
    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    Step 1
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
    After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    Step 2
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a Fusion Drive or a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of Steps 1 and 2.

  • Captive runtime -target bundle does not create the package fails after creating a .tmp folder

    Hi Adobe Team, Experts,
    I cannot create a captive runtime package successfully on windows.
    This is the command I am using to create a captive runtime package for windows
    adt -package -keystore CodeSigning.pfx -storetype pkcs12 -storepass password -target bundle TestPackage Test-app.xml Test.swf
    The issue is the above command creates a .tmp directory "adt5072057577475387637.tmp" but does not create a directory by name "TestPackage" .
    Another observation is the above command works in-consistently it seems to create the directory sometimes but fails for the most.
    Funny enough !! It worked when I was creating a POC but  now when I am trying to release it stops working on me.
    It is the same machine I did POC on.
    The application descriptor has
    <supportedProfiles>desktop extendedDesktop</supportedProfiles>
    I have also tried
    adt -package -keystore CodeSigning.pfx -storetype pkcs12 -storepass password -target bundle TestPackage.exe Test-app.xml Test.swf
    as mentioned here -  http://www.riaspace.com/2011/08/bundling-air-3-runtime-in-air-desktop-applications/
    Flex SDK version - 4.6.0
    AIR SDK version - 3.1
    JDK version - jdk1.6.0_18
    Please advise as to how to fix this issue.
    Thanks,

    Hi vshare,
    did you ever find a solution to this? I'm running into the same problem with no apparent solution.
    Thanks!

    My win8 pc hard drive failed.  After the hard drive was replaced, I copied iTunes Media backupfiles from external hard drive (Karen's Replicator backup software was used).  ITunes does not recognize these back up files even though the location is the same as cloud & recently burned music that does show- help!  The backup files consist of 34,000+ songs; almost all burned from my own CD collection.  I do have most of the songs on an ipod classic but hesitate to try to restore from that.  Can someone tell me how to get these 34,000 songs to show up in iTunes?  Thanks!!

    This diagram shows how a typical iTunes library ought to be set out (click on it to enlarge)
    The red outline highlights the media folder and its contents, the various subfolders are only created if that kind of content is in your library. The right-hand side shows the files that should be found in the iTunes library folder; sentinel is normally hidden so may not be visible. The core of your iTunes library is the file iTunes Library.itl, you need to restore this, the other library files and the Album Artwork folder, as well as the media folder, to restore your library.

  • MS Outlook 2010 Add in Create pdf - does not create pdf of draft emails- Adobe Acrobat Pro X

    In MS Outlook 2010 Add in Create pdf- does not create pdf of draft emails- this maybe the case, but just wanted to make sure this is normal for the program- though I guess one can print as an Adobe pdf but it does not maintain the hyperlinks of email addresses etc. the functionality is compromised in a print vs create a pdf.

    Here's a workaround by the team:
    Right click on the message from Explorer list view or folder view and chose the option to convert to PDF.

  • Multi-select LOV does not work in forms

    the multi select LOV does not work in the form.
    the LOV works individually but in the form it does not work. it does not allow multiple selection from the list.
    is there a workaround for this or is this a bug ...?
    any ideas ...?
    thanx a lot.
    null

    Right, we cannot store more than one value in a single column in a table :), we were getting a lot of requests to support multiple select LOVs but requirements were contradictory if not mutually exclusive.
    The only sense it makes is when used together with user-defined object types (nested tables for example) but the current [application building]infrastructure we have does not support this. However, we are looking into this and this feature maybe implemented in a future release.
