    Are there any plans to upgrade backburner to amd64 (x64) version in order to overcome this functional limit of 2GB zip files?

    For anyone having issues make sure you download the Windows version by selecting at the top of this page. By default you will download the Mac version tar.gz


  • 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.

    The IPv6 had me looking at other software to do this, but reverted back to Backburner as it simply works. Really wish Autodesk would update this to work without having to configure the network.


  • 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.
