Output unselectable

Hi,

I'm having problems with the selection screen for starting my renders in the Dispatch Utility. I'm using Houdini 11 and have set up the file in accordance with the documentation provided in the help section. I have a mantra render node set up in the output section of my HIP file, yet every time I go to select it in the Houdini Render Dispatch Utility, there is nothing to select. Even the selection box is extremely small.

I don't know what to do. When I try to render, it just errors out with "No Output".

Hi,
Could you try to upload your file again to the farm?

Sorry for the late reply.

I've tried deleting it and re-uploading several times. I even went back to an older file, recreated the mantra nodes and nothing changed. I also tried uploading a basic file with nothing more than a point light, a sphere, and a camera. I set up a mantra node in the output section and its doing the same thing.

I'm not sure if the problem is to be honest. I'm using Houdini 11.0.547, and the scenes are set up with mantra render nodes for the output. I should be able to at least see something in the drop down menu of the Dispatch Utility, but like I said, its very small and nothing shows up when I click on it.

Usually when this happens it is because the file gets corrupted and re-transferring it fixes the problem.

Can you drop by the systems office so we can help you troubleshoot?
