###UPDATED GUIDE###

Ive been into 3d recently, and my scenes would get quite big, Take hours to render etc. I wanted to learn how to use my other computers on my network for a speed boost.

To my dismay, I could find no decent guide on how to do it. I did manage to find out by piecing together around 4-5 different forum threads.

As I’m kind (And waiting for my render to finish), I thought I’d write a basic how-to guide on how to use/setup the mental ray satellite 2009.

So, Lets get started.

Step #1

Make sure you have installed Maya on your host computer, and install the metal ray satellite on your ’slave’ pc’s. (I have installed Maya on my slave pc also, I’m not sure if this is necessary)

Step #2

We need to create the ‘maya.rayhosts’ file on your host PC, to add the ip’s of the slaves pc’s.

Open notepad (or a similar program)

Then type in the IP addresses of each pc that is running metal ray satalite, followed by the port.

EG. (one pc)

‘10.1.1.100:7109′

Example (Two PC’s)

‘10.1.1.101:7109

10.1.1.102:7109′

The port for mental ray satellite 2009 is default to ‘7109′

For mental ray standalone the port is ‘7009′

Then save the file as ‘maya.rayhosts’ to this directory:

NOTE: Make sure you have not saved it as a text file, other wise this won’t work! When saving under the name textbox, you should see a list box, click it and change it to ‘all files’.

XP:

“\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\maya\ 2009\en_US\prefs”

Vista:

“\Users\<username>\Documents\maya\2009\en_US\prefs”

For other OS’s please see the maya documentation here.

Step #3

Make sure you have allowed the programs to the network/internet. And it may be wise to disable anti-virus/firewall programs as they may interfere.

Check that the RaySat2009Server service is running on all slave pc’s.

Step #4

Load up maya on your host pc, go to the rendering options, render->Batch Render (Click the option box).

Make sure the box is ticked ‘Render on network machines’.

Now render it!

Should have no errors and your render will take a minute to start (just while its copying all the required files over to the slaves), Then your render will be boosted!

END NOTE:

You may overlook the maya documentation, but it is extreemly helpful at times. Please use this as your primary resource for help, its very good!
