How to Submit Maya Render
- Click Maya Render on the left-hand menu, then it will turn to render-submit page as shown below; select correct Maya version, project directory and scene file, then click "Next":
After a few seconds, the scene file will finish analyzing. The page will turn to Step 2 Asset Tracking.
The system will show the resource files that are used in your Maya scenes as shown below. If some files are lost, there will be a red prompting showing "lost" on the top of "Status". If the file is found, it will show "Found".
Resource files will be lost if maps are not uploaded. So it is suggested that you may upload maps with FTP (any subfolder is ok, such as "sourceimages"), then refresh the page and you will find them "found". If you are not going to use those lost files, then please ignore it and click "Next" to continue.
- Parameter Setting
The system will auto-analyze all the layers of Maya files and load parameters (as shown). If you want to modify parameters, you can click "+" to expand layers for modification. When you finish modification, you may click "Next" to continue.
- Render Plan and Render Mode: there are two plans and modes for rendering

Lastly, click "Next" and a render task will be submitted to the system. After that, you will get a task number which allows you to monitor the progress of task on the control panel.
- Render frame by frame: It means the system will render your scene frame after frame. There is only one machine to render your task. After one frame is done, the next frame will be rendered right away. The advantage is, you are allowed to check the result of first several frames. If the result is not correct, you may pause your task immediately to save time and budget. If it is correct, you may switch to "Full-speed rendering", which will speed up the render and assign machines as many as possible to your task.
- Full-speed rendering: This render mode is for experienced users or tasks which have rendered out several frames correctly. Using full-speed rendering will speed up your rendering since the system will assign machines as many as possible to it.
