Mental Ray Satellite Batch Render problems
I'm having a bit of trouble with batch rendering with the Mental Ray Satellite...
Connected to my machine I have 3 extra PC's, through the Mental Ray Satellite. All of these are being used correctly as Slaves on a scene I'm working on when rendering a still with the render view.
The problem is when I try to Batch Render; when I click batch render I get this:
// Rendering with mental ray... //
// Rendering Completed. See mayaRenderLog.txt for information. //
I did have it working yesterday, even if it was a little buggy and stopped rendering half way through frames, after a few attempts of hitting batch render it started working its way through the frames properly... Until I added another machine to the maya.rayhosts file, then it just gives me the message above.
I tried removing the extra machine that I added, but it still does not want to start batch rendering with the slaves.
The scene does render however when just rendering on the local machine.
Could anybody help me with this? I'm completely new to using mental ray satellite... and if I can get this working it would massively speed up rendering at my workplace!
