View Full Version : one frame net rendering

04 April 2003, 11:02 AM
Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to render a frame (letīs say a BIG frame so perhaps..., 20 hours of rendering?) using several computers, I would like to know if this is possible either in MAYA and in Mental Ray.

Any solutions?

Thankīs in advance.

I know that programs exist to do that. But You can still try to render parts of the image and assemble them on your compositing tool.
Render option:

-x <int>set X resolution of the final image

-y <int>set Y resolution of the final image

-xl <int>
set X sub-region left pixel boundary of the final image

-xr <int>
set X sub-region right pixel boundary of the final image

-yl <int>
set Y sub-region low pixel boundary of the final image

-yh <int>
set Y sub-region high pixel boundary of the final image

oh, I was wondering if there were some "elegant" solution, with tha comand line renderer solution there will be things like post-process that wonīt render correctly, I mean 2D motion blur, glows, fogs and things like that.
And any advises on Mental Ray renders?

I made a very simple script that lets you render your image
in 4 tiles and then you can assemble them together in photoshop or whatever.

It's under "rendering & shading" ..

the script is called "SubRegionRender"

here's the link

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have suggestions on

regards Joel
