Here is my config:
network:10/100 linksys befsr81
file server: P42.4 with 1GB of ram, and dedicated hd's for os and working fiiles
master: dual xeon 3.06 with 2gb of ram and
slave: P4 2.8ht with 1gb of ram
- I am currently batch rendering a still image 2500pix from a relatively heavy scene 150K polys. During the first 30-60 minutes the slave had minimal cpu activity and the master was bouncing around at higher levels(understandable: translation, photon emission, fg.). After this phase both the master and the slave went to 100% cpu and have remained pegged for the last 15hours and counting. I feel like this type of scene would have been finished a long time ago if I was still rendering with my maya6 setup. When I try to imf_disp.exe the image to see progress, a 2500pix frame opens on the screen but it is COMPLETLY BLACK. I am not sure if it is rendering at all? any ideas??
