Is it correct that I cannot use a G5 Quad in a qmaster cluster to render R3D footage?
Actually scrub that because it's a G5 it wont be will it. Not sure if you can or not. You wont be able to install Redline thats for sure, but I am not sure if you need to on every node anyway as I believe it uses your main ingest machine for that. Try adding it to your cluster and see.
Thanks to Visual Processing Japan (metaSAN distributor) and Comtecs (Infotrend dealer), now I have metaSAN running with two Mac Pros, so I will scale down to two machines, place the R3D files on metaSAN volume, and the output location to be on the metaSAN.
Also fix the cluster name.
I'll let you know Simon.
So I've gathered bits and pieces of this but I think I am missing something, is there anyway anyone could post or direct me to a detailed step-by-step breakdown of this process? I have an 8core and a quadcore set as my cluster... I've saved the redline.sh script in a redline folder and can get qmaster to render redrushes scripts on the ingest machine only.
I think it has something to do with the redline.sh script not running in the background? How do I achieve that?
I'm finding that metaSAN changes how Qmaster works and can't seem to get the cluster working with metaSAN. Cluster seems to work only with locally attached volumes. I can't even assign any network disks through ethernet, the Qmaster in the System Preference denis using network disk. I read up some stuff and it was mentioned that Qmaster had issues with XSAN, so metaSAN part is probably something similar happening but how did you mount your network volume to you cluster? Ah, maybe NFS?
