NCCA Render farm Source Code and Tools Version 1.0. This is the first production release and is now being heavily tested by the Masters students for the group project download
To use the RenderFarm you must first set the environment variable RENDERDB
in the .bashrc file add the following export RENDERDB=rfmaster
This will submit all of the valid files in the current directory into the renderfarm.
In the console change to the dir where your maya file is and then you type the following
FarmMaya.py -s 1 -e 2 -f MayaTest.mb -r file -p /cgstaff/jmacey/maya/8.0/-s is the start frame
you can also do a -o " any render options" such as -o " -pad 4 -im test -of tiff"
if you type Render --help in the console it will give you more information.
