Team Render does not save to location

I don’t have an example file, but, when I do a team render with other machines the render goes to the render viewer and not the save location.  This is a problem because if it crashes, I lose all of the render progress.  I am using a PC with Mac render nodes, and the network paths are different between the sides, but the rendering is occurring.

how do I get it to actually save the files during team rendering?

Hi SethO,

Please check with the Support about this:

To have enough data for your request and to accelerate the case, so you are up and running quickly, please check this tutorial (perhaps select others from this series).

Just a hunch, do you use relative path for the rendering? Win vs Mac.

Ah, ok.  The relative path feature did the trick!  I have to move the files to another drive afterwards, but at least it saves each frame now.  Thank you very much!
