If I run the command "rndr Ambient_occ.rib", which has the following line in the rib:
Display "ambient occlusion.tif" "framebuffer" "rgba"
Should it not generate the file ambient occlusion.tif as a file? If I run the command on a remote machine, it renders but does not save anything. If run it on a machine with a display it will show the image, but not save it - what am I doing wrong? I've also tried using render -d too.
The "framebuffer" display driver is used only to output to the screen.
If you want to output to a file, you should use the "file" display driver.
I usually use the statement:
Display "my_file.tif" "file" "rgba" "string compression" ["LZW"]
Which saves a lossless-compressed .tif file.
I hope that helps.
