Installing on Render Machines
« on: August 12, 2010, 05:14:33 PM »
It seems that for every machine on our renderfarm we must remote desktop into them and install the render slave license of FP. This is a time consuming process.

Isn't there a way that FP can be installed by simply copying the ForestPackPro.dlo file to our shared network plugins folder, just as we do with all our other third party plugins?
Kind Regards,
Rich

You can also install it manually as described here (see Network Rendering section):

Besides the ForestPackPro.dlo file, the other files are needed because the VRay and Mental Ray requirements.
