Installing Batch Processing and Configuring the machine-list File

The machine-list file identifies all the machines on your network that can be allowed to batch process Harmony files. The machines on this list represent the render farm.

NOTE: You must have sufficient batch processing licenses to run batch processing on all the machines in the machine-list file.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the H264 codec is installed on all the machines that will do the batch render of movie previews—see Installing Harmony Server.

Windows

In Windows, use the Harmony Configuration Wizard to add computers to the machine-list file and to install the batch processing service. You must run the Configuration Wizard on all machines that will perform batch processing.

Mac OS X

On Mac OS X, use the Configuration Assistant to install the batch processing queue Startup Item that will start the batch processing service. You must run the Configuration Assistant on all machines that will perform batch processing.

Adding the Web Render Script to Harmony

In the Script Editor, you should have a TB_WebCC_render.js script, which is installed when you create the web server. For previous versions of the Harmony database, it must be added manually.

Copying the comp.dict File

If you keep the database that was created with an older version of Harmony, note the comp.dict file is not updated automatically when you install the latest version. You must manually replace the file with the latest version by taking the file from your local installation.
