Using MentalRay distributed Rendering with Backburner.
show user profile  Nik Clark
Hey guys,

Does anybody here use Backburner with the MR distributed rendering?

Max 2009 introduced a problem for me. When you are rendering using MR, your machine becomes useless. Even if I limit max to just one core on my machine, and set it's priority to low, it still becomes impossible to use this machine (and all others I've tried this on).

I would love to be able to que single MR renders to the bank of machines I have here with Backburner on them. Max needs an option to ONLY use the machines in the rayhosts file, and not render with the machine calling the render.

At the moment, I use remote Desktop to get around this problem, but it's a pain in the arse.

Has anybody here used MR distributed rendering with Backburner?
