Outsourcing to Render Farms
« on: April 28, 2010, 06:22:44 AM »
Hi,

We outsource our larger jobs to a 3rd party render farm who do not have a paid version of forest pro (they can install forest lite for us) however this would mean that the options such as surface tracking would not work.  Is there a way to turn the forest object into a locked standard object (such as an editable poly/mesh) which keeps the animated planes (i.e. trees turning to face the camera) and similar features of the plugin?

Thanks

You can convert a Forest Pro object to editable mesh (this option is not available for Lite), but it will be a frozen geometry, losting all the dynamic features of Forest.

Anyway, we usually provide free Forest Pro licenses to renderfarm companies that request it in exchange of cross links or similar agreements. We actually have Forest support in ReBus Farm and Render Titan. If you work with other renderfarm company, tell them to contact with to us, we will be pleased to provide them a copy of the software and support.
