News from GarageFarm.NET - New tools for rendering Maya


#1

Hi guys!

Andrew here from GarageFarm.NET

We have very good news! We have been working hard for the last several months and put together lots of powerful tools for our users. Here are some of them:

1. General Maya support

2. New farm features:

We increased node limits on all priorities: Now, you can get more rendering power for the same price. :slight_smile:

The default priority has been changed from High to Medium. Also, most recently selected priority is remembered for every new scene.

3. We added new cool features to our Web Manager:

Your scripts can be executed from the “Advanced settings” menu before rendering. Scripts are executed “per-job”. Users need to contact with our support team to add custom scripts (we are online on chat 24/7)

If you want you can limit the number of nodes allocated to your job ( for example for test purposes, or to distribute your nodes on Low priority in the way you want )

Render Progress Tab is divided into three sections:

Below you can find a small preview of the new Web Manager feature.

Please note that it’s still an early version and that we’ll be continuously working on making it better. Tell us what you think!

4. We added new cool features to our renderBeamer.

In a normal workflow, you need to set the job in submit window after upload to add it to the queue. It has many cool options, but in case you want to render 20 cameras from the scene, the process gets tedious. With auto-submit you just upload the jobs to the farm, and they are automatically added to the queue with default options.

Good news for users rendering high resolution still images. Now stills download much faster.

No Tetris yet, but it’s on the list :wink:

100% clean uninstallation

It shortly explains the options of the uploader.

This option allows you to install the plugin even if you are offline, prepare the scene with the plugin and then upload it with FTP ( for example, if your company IT rules are blocking renderBeamer.) You can even copy a project to a different computer and upload it with FTP and add it to the queue.
