Investigating what it would take to put together a maya rendering farm. From what I’ve gathered so far you need to go get yourself a render manager...kind of a pain, but okay. Then have it launch maya in batch mode. Now what I haven’t been able to figure out is if maya can run in batch mode without being authorized. In other words do you have unlimited render nodes like Max?
The Maya Software renderer will let you use as many render slaves as you want on a single license.
If your referring to MentalRay rendering, however, you get two satellite licenses with Maya Complete, and 8 with Maya Unlimited.
If i have 1 network Maya 2010 license plus 3 Maya standalone, how many machines can i have working in render farm?
Comes with 5 licenses of mental ray for Maya Batch for those with network licenses of Maya
Comes with 8 licenses of mental ray for Maya Satellite for easy distribution of interactive viewport rendering jobs.
So… if ´have 2 network licenses ( 5 + 5 batch render nodes) i may put 10 Pc working for same job?
Or i will always have a limit of 5 5 batch render nodes?
