View Full Version : A weird error message...

07 July 2010, 08:54 PM
I got this one today for the first time, right as a render reached 100%:

DISP 0.4 error 211005: timeout waiting for finished rectangles

And then one core hangs up, the rest idle again, the render doesn't finish.

Why would I have unfinished rectangles to begin with? What's an unfinished rectangle look like? A triangle? Why does mental ray need a timeout? Was it being naughty?

I would expect some other errors prior to that. They ought to indicate that there's been a problem receiving data from a host. Error 021310 or perhaps 021017. The unfinished rectangle would be one of the buckets or tiles that the master machine sent to one of the slaves. Could be a firewall issue. Sound plausible?

That was about as far as Google got me as well. It was a long render, but I'll disable Outpost and try it again... Never seen it before, so I thought it was rather odd.

Thanks for your advice, I'll try it again!
