    Multi-Machine rendering. 2nd machine always (skipping)...

    Navarro Parker Level 3

      I have two similarly powered Mac Pros both rendering the same project. The problem is the second machine is always lagging behind the first. So it's always "(skipping)" frames and never contributes to the render. (And even though it's "skipping" frames, it still seems like it's rendering the frames internally before advancing to check if the next frame already exists.)  Is this normal?   

       

      Other than manually setting different work areas to render on each machine — which mostly defeats the whole purpose of multi-machine rendering — any tips on how to use multi-machine rendering?
