BK Renderfarm Security Updates

Due to needed security updates the render farm will put new jobs on hold until the updates on all instances have been performed. Instances running current jobs will continue until they are finished and updates on those instances will be performed after the jobs have finished. It is possible that newly submitted jobs have to be submitted again after the security update.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Update 15/1/2018: The updates have been successfully applied on all instances.

Update: MacOS High Sierra security bug allows full access

Update: Apple has released a fix. All High Sierra users can download the Security Update 2017-001 via the App Store. More information at https://support.apple.com/nl-nl/HT208315

This bug allows you to change settings in your Mac without entering any password for administrator account root. Only users with High Sierra (10.13.1 and 10.13.2 beta) are vulnerable.

You can fix this by creating a password for account root. Follow these steps from Apple to fix the problem or use our manual. Steps from Apple also available in Dutch.

After you have applied the fix, do NOT turn off your root account until there is a fix from Apple. Turning it off will make the bug return and you will be vulnerable again.

TOI Maya Toolbox for Maya 2016 Extension 2

A small update has been made in the TOI Maya Toolbox for Mac users. It seems that the latest update/extension of Autodesk Maya 2016 is slightly different. TOI Maya Toolbox version 6.7.0 does not create the TOI shelf in Maya 2016 Extension 2.

TOI Maya Toolbox 6.7.1 for Mac

We did not get any reports from Windows users having the same issue with the TOI Maya Toolbox as Mac users. Windows users can still download the Windows version (6.7.0) from TOI or Design Informatics.
