Rendering

here is the deal. I bought maya complete 4.5 with a single license. I have installed it onto my laptop. I am now in the process of rendering and am wondering how I can use my other computer to render as well. I have heard that you can render on a machine other than the one you licensed maya with. I talked to someone at Alias/Wavefront and they said just put a blank aw.dat file into my flexlm folder. If anyone could please help me out I would sure appreciate it. Thanks.

Re: Rendering

Install maya as you normally would but skip the licensing section and then create a c:/flexlm directory and as you were told place an empy text file in that diretory called aw.dat. Now if you go to the commandline and type in render.exe -h the command should print it's options.

Well the process would be the same for the Mac except you create a /var/flexlm folder to put the aw.dat file.

Actually you might need to call the file aw_client.dat

You'll have to use render at the commandline or a thiurdparty rendering utility.. the GUI is not licensed to run.
