Hi Robin,

I'm testing out RS and Smedge to create a small GPU farm. I'm getting errors writing to file. I've tried using both Maya product and Redshift for Maya to no avail.

This is output from the Workstation I'm at submtting using a GTX 1080i

Never figured out why this error was happening but we have IT support from a 3rd party company and now after changing my user permissions. It's working. So that must have been the issue.

I just purchased a few more licenses from you and I it's not a deal breaker but I have RS running fine in Maya using the RS for Maya.sx but it's not running in MAX.

In max I can get RS to work by setting the packet sized to 1. Any number larger than one it will simply render the first frame of that packet and return a render complete value. This is using the 3dsmax.sx as I don't see a RS for MAX module.

Am I on crack as usual?

Thanks in advance Robin.

I have to decide if the company I'm at will be going forward using Maya as the final ouput 3D app or 3dsmax. We are using MAX 2016 and Maya 2016.5 and Redshift as our optional render engine. I'm able to render in Maya using RS just fine and the RS for Maya.sx works great but not the case using generic MAX.sx as I can only Render on a per packet basis so it's incredibly slow. RS has to load up scene then render a frame, close and do it again.

Is there a possibility to get a Redshift for MAX module?

Anyone else have success with MAX and RS?

Sorry for not paying adequate attention to this forum again. As always, you are better off contacting us directly with questions at .

I would be happy to take a look at your Max + RS install to see what is going on with remote support. It's hard to say what else is the problem, since in general with Smedge, all Max renders should be able to use the generic "Max" product with any plugins used automatically.
