OSPray rendering with pvserver

(Daan Van Vugt) #1

Hi, I’m trying to render images with OSPRay on a KNL machine through pvserver (OSmesa superbuild of PV).
I can connect fine, and images show up but it seems they are ray-traced locally.
Is there a way to setup the raytracing on the remote machine?

Thanks,
Daan

Hi Daan,
Be sure that Remote Rendering is enabled (in settings, there is a slider “Remote Render Threshold” under the “Render View” tab)

Hi Michael,

Thank you, that was exactly what I was looking for! At 20 megabytes the setting was still too high for my dataset, so I put it to 0 and now everything runs very smoothly.

Cheers,
Daan
