  • [Hydra] Added the "Render All Frames With a Single Process" option to the Redshift LOP
  • [Katana] Improved Katana management of failed renders due to license fails or other issues
  • [Blender] Fixed 'NoneType' error checking the changed lights in IPR mode
  • [Blender] Fixed crash with 'Deep output' render because a bad cleanup on a previous 'Cryptomatte' pass buffer
  • [Blender] Fixed matrix update issue with Dome Light in IPR mode
