Render Farm
show user profile  Tythus
I have been looking to make a mini render farm using 3-4 rigs and was wanting to know of any requirements I will need? can I render out 3ds max stuff on Linux or will I need to get a windows license for them (that's not an issue I'm just wanting to know) is there any way for me to remote manage them from my main computer once I start up as a slave PC? and finally how ould you advise I go about doing so?

all depends on the render engine, afaik all of them are windows based. Some of them require max installation, some just the render core standalone installed, none of them require max license tho. If you figure out which rendered you wanna use we can help u better.

Ideally this would be used for a distributed mental ray render for my 3dsmax so when I render animations it should go along the bit more quickly with the choice of using my workstation cpu or not.
Is there any way I can make administrating them more easy such as remote control/installation of windows remotely etc so I don't need to manually install each one swapping screens etc for each one?
Also I can just install render nodes from autodesk and my last wonder what speed rated switch should I get?

(sorry for the long reply forgot to check)
