backburner not launch max
show user profile  lizinthesky

I have a network render system going on here at home, but it is set up differently to the system I saw today at university. Here, every time a computer recieves a render command, it launches 3ds max, then closes it after that render has finished. Then if a new render is sent, it has to launch it again. and on some of the slower machines, this can take ages! At uni, it only seemed to have backburner running, no 3ds max launch.

I also have alot of problems with paths to textures, which I have to carefully go through and make sure they are mapped to a drive which all the pcs access on the same drive letter, this doesn't seem to be such a problem at uni.

Is there anything I'm missing here? Is there a simple setting to make it not launch max, etc?

Have you tried turning off rendered frame window?

And for the mapping issue. You can use a network path as destination of your render. (\\lizinthesky\renders)
