@Hok Maya Renderfarm connector

Test our adaptation of the BK Renderfarm connector from the TOI Maya Toolbox. In this test version it is possible to render your scene with Arnold and RenderMan using the renderfarm with Maya 2017.

Mental Ray is still available in our test version, but for the time being the renderfarm will use Maya 2016 to render your scene. Errors may occur when a scene contains elements unique to Maya 2017.

It is required that you have installed the render engines on your computer. Arnold comes with Maya 2017. You can download RenderMan from Pixar and Mental Ray from NVIDIA.


Known issues/bugs:

  • Bottom part of text missing in installer for Windows.
  • Renderfarm icon sometimes not visible in @Hok shelf.
    • Switch between shelves to make the icon appear.

  • Renders from Arnold (may) contain a watermark.
