First of all thank you for the hard work put into Natron
I am using Natron
2.4.3 on Windows in a render farm setup and I tried launching a render with a write node (checked
read back file) that points to nothing (the file sequence does not exist).
I got the following error log while trying to render
Restoring the image cache... Loading plugin cache... Info: init.py script not loaded (this is not an error) Loading PyPlugs... Loading project: P:/test_pipe/shots/s03/p060/layout_main/publish/v000/ntp/project.ntp Error while rendering: Rendering Failed (process:7944): GLib-GIO-WARNING **: 14:17:28.960: Unexpectedly, UWP app `Microsoft.MSPaint_6.2203.1037.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe' (AUMId `Microsoft.MSPaint_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.MSPaint') supports 17 extensions but has no verbs Write2 ==> Rendering started Persistent message: Could not open "P:/test_pipe/shots/s03/p060/layout_main/publish/v000/exr/render/Write1/test_pipe_s03_p060_layout_main_publish_v000_render_Write1.0001.exr" (No such file or directory) Write2 ==> Rendering finished
Natron reports correctly that the files are missing but the return code is still
0, leaving the task in success state and not error.
Is it a wanted behavior or this needs to be fixed? As an artist I want to be warned with an error if a read node doesn’t find a file.
