Network render with mental ray for Maya

Before you begin, you must have networked workstations. See your system administrator if workstations are not networked.

You can set up masters using mental ray standalone or mental ray for Maya, using different method to specify which hosts to use as network render slaves.

NoteIf you have multiple versions of mental ray standalone installed (not recommended), each must have their own TCP port number in the services file to avoid conflict.

For example:

mi_ray3_0maya4_0 7051/tcp mi_ray3_1maya4_5 7052 and 7053/tcp mi_ray3_2maya5_0 7054/tcp
