I don't actually start the job until the middle of next week, but I just want to get a heads up on the likely problems that may be encountered.
The work is to be carried out in Maya with (I assume) Mental Ray.
The client has not specified a required resolution size (yet), so I am wondering what is a typical render size for such work? Is it common to render the entire frame out in one go, or would one split the frame into smaller chunks and stitch it together at the end? And if so, how would one split the render up?
