In Topic: Team Render [R15] crashing because its going too fast?!

If you aren't also rendering from the same machine that is processing the b3d files, it should resolve your issue.


C4D rendering squeezes your processor for everything its got, so its unable to also process the b3d files on the side. You can use a mac mini or any small machine, really. Just as long as there is some headroom to do its thing without c4d render eating up all of the cpu resources.

I agree that a high clock cpu is more important than the number of cores. Something to note, though... Once AE starts using additional cores for rendering, xeons & cpu count will be a concern again.

It is a codec issue. Whats the codec?

I think you are breaking down the drives a little too heavily. In general, don't put apps on a separate drive. Games support doing so well, but it can cause problems in other apps. You also don't really need a separate drive for rendering to. It may get you a performance boost when rendering, but only on projects that are too fast in rendering to warrant any desire for a speed increase to begin with.


My personal config is something like:


System / OS / Applications = 256gb SSD

Cache = 512gb SSD

Important File Archive = 2x 1tb as a raid 1

Work & renders = raid 10


Definitely have some type of raid for your work drives. Raid 1 at a minimum, but raid 10 is absolute king for working with media the way we do. 1tb won't get you very far but may be fine depending on what type of work you do.


For archival, I buy used hard drives off ebay. You can find good deals if you search for hard drive 'lots'. Old drives from servers etc. I also burn the project to blu-ray without large media files or uncompressed renders if its too large for disk.


A lot just depends on what type of work you do, and the size of the projects.


Definitely raid, though. If you don't, you are guaranteed to be royally burned at some point.

Sounds like it just got a new ip, and the software was still looking for the old ip. There is a euphonix finder type of utility, I believe. If you run that it should update
