Okay, I've never rendered anything that took more than like 6 hours.
Tomorrow I'm going to start rendering my biggest project yet--I've done some tests and calculated that I'm looking at probably 4 straight days of render time. :|
Anything you vets can tell me that might come in handy?
Everything's already as optimized as it's gonna get, and I can live with the render time, but I do have a deadline coming up and I'm hoping I've given myself enough wiggle room. So really what I'm asking is are there any problems I've yet to discover when trying to render such a large batch? Do you have trouble with Maya hanging up/freezing? I figure I'll try to break it up into easier-to-digest batches, so I can check on it daily. But I'm sure I'm gonna run into something unknown . . . something I haven't run into and wasn't aware I should prepare for.
Am I making sense? I'm just nervous that something's gonna break or hang up overnight or something. Anything I should be aware of before I get started? Any special prayer or offering that the Maya gods approve of?
