I am trying to figure out if Maya or 3dsmax will make better use of a Render Farm and which is easier to configure. We've been looking to buy Maya 2011 but some distributor told us that Maya had the problem that it will not relay completely in the farm for the render and it will keep using the design machine, being 3dsmax a better choice in this matter. The reason for a render farm, as i understand is to speed up render times and freeing the design machine so you can continue with your work while the farm takes care of rendering.
Any light that you can contribute in this matter will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
