  • Update for Render Layers Please :)
    Bob Bobbington | June 03, 2019

    Backburner doesn't currenlty seem to work with Maya's new Render Layers System. Requesting an update. Thanks!


  • easy to use - tricky to set up
    Andre West | August 27, 2018

    I am using this tool with Maya 2018.3 on a workstation and 4 Dell Poweredge R610 with Win 10 Pro as render nodes.

    Installation on Windows 10 is a piece of cake.

    Most complex issue that almost mad me cry was that IPv6 protocol has to be deaktivated for each ethernet socket that wants to communicate with the manager.

    Once setup it works fine and fast.

    I do recommend to carry out the Backburner timeout fix from Josh_BSS in the Autodesk forums. This works around the preset 60 minutes timeout, that cuts off longer renders.

     


  • Simple and mostly effective
    David Lacombe | December 05, 2017

    I just installed Backburner 2018 in order to use with Maya 2018. It can be quirky, but is very simple to set up and use. As far as I know, it cannot handle render layers or complicated instructions, but for me it is a good and simple render farm manager solution.

    Took a little bit to find, but the mac tar.gz unpacked perfectly with archive utility and unarchiver for me.
