How to Build an Amazon EC2 Render Farm for C4D

Fonts being emailed from a Mac show up as 0kb

18 August 2014 - 06:50 PM

Odd question here, but its driving me mad and I can't find a straight answer via google.


A client on a mac keeps trying to email me a zip containing fonts. The zip is 290kb in size. When I unzip them (windows here), all of the files show up as 0kb.


I asked a friend with a mac to try to unzip the files, and sure enough.. they are usable files. However, when copy - pasting from their mac to my pc via remote desktop, they become 0kb again.


Does anyone have a method on a PC to get such font deliveries to work? We are 100% pc based so its a huge pain in the ass.


And, emailing a font from a PC to a PC works just fine. All types of formats, too. Did OTF and TTF.

x-particles on render farm?

11 August 2014 - 05:57 AM

Sorry if this has been asked before...


I am about to buy x-particles but can't find any information on how it works on a render farm. Do I need to buy a license for each render farm node? Or if I bake the emitter, will it work just as well for rendering purposes on a machine that doesn't have x-particles installed? Or does it allow command line rendering without a serial?


Another tricky thing is that I have to use floating licenses for everything. Node-locked activations won't work in my case because the render farms are Amazon AWS instances that look like new hardware each time they are started up.
