Ive a set of files that I want to render over my 1GB network on a slave machine not using TR just remote desktop. I’ve done this many times without problems. However these have a couple of large xref files that they need to load in otherwise each file would be easily 3GB if I was to keep all the objects in file rather than xref. But trying to load them over the network is painfully slow - like 30-40mins slow. Network speed reckons its only about 5-6mbps. Direct transfer speed is usually about 110mbps so C4D is making hard work of it but 40mins is too long to be waiting and I cant imagine large studios would put up with this bottleneck. Is there anything I can check or do to help C4D load the xrefs in faster? R17 Studio. Thanks
The Xrefs are stored on an SSD so should be fast enough and loads much quicker by comparison on the local machine.
