I have a sweep nurb using an xpTrail object to create some animated geometry. Specifically, when I use xpCache and my team render clients, the *sometimes* are missing the first frame of the sweep nurb geometry. The second frame picks it up just fine. Everything works with xpCache and team render just fine. All the xpCache files are found in the shared network. It's just that when the client picks the render (rq), the first frame has no data for the xpTrail I think? I tried this with the openVDBMesher, and it's fine. It's something about the sweep nurb.
Also worth noting, I tried playing with priorities, and putting things higher up in the object manager. Didn't seem to work. I even tried the "Set Priority" tag, but I don't thing it actually effects anything but some animation stuff.
When the client picks up a new range, the same thing happens, the first frame is missing the sweep nurb geometry. Second frame and till the end, is fine. So as the frame ranges get moved around, I end up with a bunch of frames missing the sweep nurb + xpCache geometry for each start of a new range on any one of my clients.
I believe, oddly, that if I team render to just my local machine, the same thing happens. If I DONT use team render, it's fine. So... there's that.
Finally, I have the "skip pre-roll" unchecked. I think this concerned me.. but it also isn't making a difference.
I'm out of ideas. Anyone have any thoughts?
