Still present in 2.72b.
Please, at least re-open it ! This bug makes network rendering almost useless.
Network render addon is currently in orphaned state. For until new maintainer appears issues with it are considered a TODO hence should be handled outside of the bug tracker.
Hi; this is my first patch on Blender. Please bear with me, esp. if it's not the right place to do code reviews (IRC ?).
Despite what has been said elsewhere, all EXR layers are correctly loaded. They are just not linked to the RenderResult, because when it's created, it creates one layer (a RenderResult layer, not OpenEXR layer) per render layer, but doesn't create a layer for the composite. So when output.exr arrives from the network, Composite.Combined.A/R/G/B have nowhere to go and are simply put aside.
In my simple tests, this patches makes the following cases work :
Comments welcome !
Thanks for the patch, some of us have been waiting for a long time for something like this. I am planning on working with it soon.
I'm no expert, but it seems that this patch isn't format specific. Will it output PNG's correctly, according to the scenarios listed? This format is a bit more condusive for quick VFX workflows, as it supports transparency.
