View Full Version : render BENDER

04 April 2003, 08:11 PM
hey ya folks,
we've been working a 2k by 2k job for the past few days and finally we had to distribute the rendering for getting it done on time...deadline day after.

Problem:every thing renders fine on our native office workstations(mix of amd's and intels) we had to take the files and render them at our subsidary office...we just got a call that the frikkin shadows wont render there(shadow mapped) :shrug: .The same file renders just fine here...there goes my 5 hours sleep. :annoyed:
any ideas/solutions.

Does it run out of memory at any point? Could you use saved shadow maps? Are all the shadows from spot lights?

Any chance your rendering with linux locally and windows at the remote location?
