Network Rendering
show user profile  Farks
Hi all, I've been away for a while so it's been ages since I've been here. Hope you're all well.

I've managed to acquire 3 relatively standard computers which I would like to use to help out with rendering single images and animations. I've used backburner before and it it came in handy when rendering animations and keeping my working PC free from slowing down. Someone said I should look at HPC cluster to link the 3 together and send work to them.

I still have my main computer which I would like to keep free from rendering so I can keep modeling and doing other bits and pieces. I typically render large architectural scenes and being able to link all 3 additional computers to process the render at the same time would be a real bonus. i.e. Having the 3 computers sharing the workload to produce 1 image.

I have no experience of what an HPC cluster is (other than a brief google search) so wondered if anyone has any advice on this or any other ideas?

Just use Vray for Distributed Rendering, and use Backburner for your animation or use Deadline for either. You could also use EC2 for Cloud rendering.
