RenderBucket helps with rendering scene files from Autodesk Maya on a single computer running OS X. It has the ability to handle multiple job files as one batch while giving access to the most commonly used render flags through an easy to use interface.
RenderBucket was originally created because setting up complex renders through the terminal can be quite a stressful and is easily prone to errors. In addition to that there is not as such a wide variety of similar software available on the mac platform as on the pc side, plus most tools only offer rendering one job at a time and don’t respect batch rendering of multiple jobs.
RenderBucket doesn't support network rendering at this time. Only local renders are supported.
