hard to say, what format is your render procedural: ass file, obj, alembic?

Does this happen with all scenes? And is it just the Render View, or do all renders have the same errors?

Can you post the full Arnold log?

The problem is with the ass file
Here is the same ass file rendered in maya without pb, but not in Houdini!

The solution I found is re save again the ass file in houdini,

maybe arnold's openVDB version is too low.


Version 6.2.0 - September 18, 2019

New features:
  • Added FindActiveValues, which counts the active values in a tree that intersect a given bounding box.
  • Added DelayedLoadMetadata, which stores mask offsets and compression sizes on write to accelerate delayed load reading.

This is an OpenVDB warning (not an errro) and the message is logged by OpenVDB

cannot read metadata "file_delayed_load" of unregistered type "__delayedload"

Ok thank you and there is any solution to fix that ? Because when I render, some of frame are white or incomplete. I rendered with Mantra and all worked. Thanks

Arnold does use delayed loading, it just doesn't know about the metadata.

That's unlikely to cause render problems

What else is in a Detailed Arnold log?

sounds like an Houdini issues, check your bounding boxesd on this frame, maybe there are nan's or incredible bounding box sizes (like 5 billion unit etc..)
