View Full Version : Realtime/Previz machine needed

08 August 2012, 07:33 AM
Hey guys,

I'm looking to buy a new machine that will handle heavy motionbuilder scenes for realtime and previz.

Looking on a Dell Precision R5500 that I can get with dual socket and lots of ram. Does anyone know if MotionBuilder can take advantage of multiple CPUs and how well it scales out?

Thinking 32GB of RAM should be enough for everything I can throw at it. I could always get more later if needed.

Any thoughts or recommendations on machines would be much appreciated!

Edit: Oh, another requirement is rack mounted and good support. Won't go down the road of home built machines again for this setup...
