Recovery and 'keepfiles'


Do not enable the keepfiles option for checkpointing if you want to use the recover capability.

Option "checkpoint" "uniform int keepfiles" [0]

The keepfiles option causes prman to save a sequence of checkpoints for debugging purposes giving each checkpoint image a unique file name tagged with increment and elapsed render time. However, when attempting to recover a file, prman won't scan your directory for checkpointed files or try to choose one. It will only look for the file by the original render output name.
