I have been trying to get this to work for a couple days now. I have an EC2 P2 instance with NVIDIA CUDA configured by default, its a Deep learning Ubuntu AMI. This OS does not have a GUI so everything is via terminal.
I downloaded Blender's 2.8 TAR file for Linux and set it up on the EC2 instance. And ran the following command from the directory where the TAR file is extracted:
./blender -b -noaudio /home/ubuntu/file.blend --render-output . --engine BLENDER_EEVEE --render-format PNG --verbose 4
All I see in the output is this:
Blender 2.80 (sub 75) (hash f6cb5f54494e built 2019-07-29 17:17:04) found bundled python: /mnt/blender/blender-2.80-linux-glibc217- x86_64/2.80/python Read blend: /home/ubuntu/file.blend Blender quit
Don't know why its quitting but I am unable to debug this any further. Any help would be appreciated.
UPDATE: As per @rjg's recommendation, ran the following command:
./blender -b -noaudio /home/ubuntu/file.blend --render-output . --engine BLENDER_EEVEE --render-format PNG -f 1 --verbose 4
Got the following error:
Blender 2.80 (sub 75) (hash f6cb5f54494e built 2019-07-29 17:17:04) found bundled python: /home/ubuntu/blender/blender-2.80-linux-glibc217- x86_64/2.80/python Read blend: /home/ubuntu/file.blend Unable to open a display Aborted (core dumped)
