View Full Version : Maya win2k to Sun renderfarm

11 November 2004, 06:24 AM
I have a windows system with maya and another dual proc Sun computer just sitting there. im wondering if there is some way of making it a renderfarm. can anyone help with the setup? i have no idea where to start or what software i need. will i need maya installed on the Sun? if not, can i use my mental ray stand alone? thanks

Solaris only runs Mental Ray and Prman, not Maya. Are you using either of those renderers? Your going to have to puchase a version of MR or Prman specifically for Solaris. Then write out .mi/.rib files from windows box and render it on the sun machine.
