Hello,

I'm working on a project and would like to seek help on how should I set up the render nodes.

this is our setup.

Computer name - description/software installed

RenderPal server - windows machine
workstation 1 - used by creative - after effects
workstation 2 - used by creative - Cinema 4D
workstation 3 - used by creative - Maya 2012
render node 1 - dedicated for render farm
render node 2 - dedicated for render farm
render node 3 - dedicated for render farm
render node 4 - dedicated for render farm
render node 5 - dedicated for render farm
render node 6 - dedicated for render farm

1. Do i need to have Maya, Cinema 4D, and After Effects installed on render nodes 1-6?
2. If yes, does that mean i need to purchase licences for Maya, Cinema 4D, and After Effects for the render nodes?

Thank you for everyone's help in advance.

Every computer that is used for rendering needs the appropriate software (Maya, C4D etc.) - how else could they render? So you usually need some kind of license for each machine.
