Right, I hit a real snag.
I am trying to get bucket rendering to work between two machines.
One is running Vista 32bit and max 2012 32 bit.
The other one is running Windows 7 ultimate with max 2012 64 bit.
Backburner does not see the other node, no matter which machine I use server and manager on .
Has anyone else seen this? (firewall is off)

For animations, it's better (faster) to not use distributed bucket rendering.
Distributed bucket rendering doesn't need Backburner.
Are you using IP, UDP? Sometimes changing which you are using helps.
Check your network has the necessary ports open.

"For animations, it's better (faster) to not use distributed bucket rendering."
Why is this?

Because there's overhead managing the distribution of the buckets. On our network, at least, it's faster just have to have machines take a frame each of an animation, rather than DBR frame by frame.

hmmm.. okay noted.
So are there any bespoke or off the shelf alternatives to Backburner that are not reliant on Windows.. i.e. can process max files in Linux or other low resource OS?
