I am running 3DS MAX Design 2010 64 bit on a Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5GHz with 16 GB of Ram with a Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 video card. I have set up a distributed bucket rendering farm for a large still image. It requires to be printed 24 x 36 and high resolution. Whenever it renders on a single machine it finishes, however, it takes 8 days to complete. Using the net render it gets to 1.2% and crashes. Do you have any suggestions to make the net render more stable, or to speed up the rendering on a single machine. If we are rendering at 300DPI what is a suitable image size to render. Any help to speed this process up would be helpful. Thank you!
