Quick Instructions—

You must be a memeber of the "keyshot" group. Members of the 210 and 310 class have been added. Others need to contact us to get added. In the keyshot groups folder create a folder for your completed renderings. Please name the folder so it is easily identifiable as yours.

When sending a render job to the network rendering system, in the output section be sure to set the output folder path correctly to—

\\fs-caedm.et.byu.edu\homes\groups\keyshot\your_folder name
