I'm rendering out an animation using the IRmap + LC using the animation prepass mode. After doing some research online, I found that this is the quickest solution for rendering animations with moving objects.
Since each frame saves out an IRmap for each frame, I thought it would be best to speed up the irradiance map calculation process by using multiple computers. I loaded the same exact max scene with the same rendering settings on multiple computers. Computer 'A' is saving out the IRmap for frames 151-190, computer 'B' is saving 190-240, and so on.
Once frames 151-190 were finished rendering, I loaded IRmap 190 to continue rendering.Is it possible to do this? Because now I'm getting some spotches/artifacts so I don't think vray is reading the new IRmaps. I also tried to load the IRmap 151 and start rendering from frame 190, but that didn't work either. Am I missing something here? Please advise. Thank you!
