So, I've got my new Octane and I'm loving it, but I'm pretty keen to find a real use for it. The whole reason that I wanted one in the first place was because of Maya (I've been a Mac Maya user for years).
Now, I'm not going to fool myself that whatever spares and second hand stuff I can shove into the Octane is ever going to make it as good for rendering as most recent PCs (or Macs). But what I do wonder is, could I set it up so that I can model through Irix and remote render on the Mac? It's Maya 6.5 for IRIX, and I've got Maya versions going back to 2009 (unlimited) for Mac (Intel). But I've no idea whether this can be done, or if I'm just wasting my time trying.
Anyone tried it?
Oh, now that I'm trying out Maya on IRIX, anyone got any good pointers on the must have scripts / shaders etc. I did have a look on creativecrash earlier and was gratified to see that IRIX returned a reassuring number of results, but to avoid spending days going through them, any clues?
