I would suggest you to follow our "Distributed Rendering issues
" post to identify where the problem could be in your case (you can follow that basic "troubleshooting guide post" also for any other type of network rendering as backburner). Basically, there are two common causes for similar issues: the plug-in is not properly installed on all render nodes, or there are missing assets.
Might be, that your render nodes are missing path(s) to required assets from the 3ds Max configuration Customize
- Configure User Paths
- External files
stored in 3dsmax.ini
. The .ini
file is located by default here:C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2017 - 64bit\ENU3dsmax.ini
Also, generally, we recommend to resolve all references used by Forest with the Asset Tracker
to absolute UNC paths
. It's not necessary, but usually this way you avoid any texture path issues while using distributed rendering.
Also, please feel free to check following post "Setting up/configuring client computers
" on our forum regarding this topic. You may find it useful.
