I have spent the past 2 weeks trying to get the cgru server and 1 slave machine to render together.

Re: Render Farm Setup Help

AHA.....I finally got it to work correctly.....ONCE! I added the path to the server into the slave config and then ran another test. That one solitary test worked perfectly.....both machines rendered the test file completely to the end. However, when I tried to run another test.....the slave quit wo...

Here are the logs from Frame 1 only, as that is the frame that tries to render on the slave first and then moves to the master. First the Error Log again....

Re: Render Farm Setup Help

Hi Timur, Sorry....I thought I was looking for the Output in Blender. I found the tasks and output in Afanasy. I did not see anything in the actual task list.

The slave machine shows up fine and ready to go on the "render list", along with the server (which I also have set to render). When I start a job, both machines start to render frames......but the sl...
