    Hey Gordon,
    Wow it has been a long time! My main workstation is a MacPro. I have four Mac Minis connected through ethernet. Works great! Of course you’ll need a router/switch if you have more then one Mac Mini.
    Good luck!

    I work in a small production company and we are thinking to setup a small render farm with mac minis to use with cinema 4d and after effects. What specification mac minis are best to buy to work most efficiently ?

    Hey guys,

    Almost a year later….I was just considering doing this and when I did a quick google search I found this thread. Have any of you used a setup like this with Maya? How do you control your renders and your cpus? Is there a front end that you use? Sorry, this would be my first render farm setup so please excuse my nubs-ness. 🙂
