View Full Version : Rendering Maya files on a farm with mr Stand alone

04 April 2009, 07:47 PM
Recently I had my farm converted to mental ray stand alone. My problem is that now when I submit a Maya file for rendering through rush render, the conversion from Maya file to MR file takes hours. If I export the scene myself to an mi file locally, it takes only a few minutes. If anyone has any ideas why MR stand alone is taking so long to convert my files please let me know.

Hi Don,

Im pretty sure it would not be MR Standalone that is doing the conversion as I don't believe it has the executable to convert a maya file to .mi.

I am unsure how rush render works. We do not have any render distribution software installed at work, just do it all manually with a few batch files.

Would be interested to here your setup tho and if you find a solution to your problem.
