View Full Version : distributed rendering

I have a problem with distributed rendering: I specified the scene to save/output individual bmp files of each frame, but for some reason the computers with lightwave installed are the only ones that render the frames correctly. The rest of the computers are rendering flx files with only some missing textures. Does anyone know why this is? I guess I'll have lightwave installed on all machines, but I don't know if it'll fix everything.

You should place your plugins at shared network drive and point all the nodes to it. The same goes for textures, objects and scene files.

Just curious... Any particular reason for using the BMP format? I would think that would be one of the least used formats especially if you plan on doing any post processing, etc...
