Log

 

Arnold can generate a log reporting all the steps needed to render an image, as well as any warnings and errors encountered by the renderer. This log also provides detailed statistics that are useful for debugging, optimizing and benchmarking renders.

The Arnold log provides detailed statistics that are useful for debugging, optimizing and benchmarking renders. It is the first thing to examine should you encounter errors and usually the first information to send to support.

Note that an individual log file will be saved for each frame of animation that has been rendered.

Note, C4DtoA will save an individual log file for each frame of animation that has been rendered. You can also defined the padding manually by adding # characters to the path (e.g. c:\armold\log\my_scene_###.log)

Verbosity Level
