RESOLVED: Render Pass TOP - Crop Page has no effect

Postby carloalan » Wed Jan 09, 2019 10:07 am

Hey,

I am rendering several parts of a scene (GEOs) using the same camera, but using different Crop settings. It works very nicely having different render TOPs but I thought I could gain performance when using one render TOP and using the Crop functionality in the render pass TOP. But that doesn't seem to have any effect. Or am I mistaking sth here?

Thank you :-)

Works in my testing here with 27550 and experimental. If it is still not working for you would you mind uploading example file and tell us your GPU?

Hey Ben,

I had to try out again and found out that it works if the Render Pass TOPs and the Render TOP are on the same "level" in the network. I worked with Replicators for each Render Pass TOP because there was a bit more going on inside each Replication. And here it doesnt work. Attached is a file showing what I mean..

I am on a GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q

Ok got it. The Geometry Parameter in the Render Pass TOP needs to reference one level up: "../*". It's confusing me that it does show a Geometry at all then if there is only "*"?! :?: Well attached the version now working :D

Ah yes, * does not travel up the heirarchy, so ../* would be needed. Thanks for getting back to us.
