Network rendering question
« on: December 19, 2012, 11:09:11 am »
Hey all,

I am thinking of upgrading to a network render license but have a question that I cant find anywhere on the website.

Currently our design department shares a rendering station, and I'm being nice, really they fight over it..  I want to set up network rendering but I have one concern. Right now they will set up an image start a render, then once they see the image coming together decide they need to adjust and repeat that process a couple of times until they get the image the way they want it.

Will they still be able to work this way with a network render queue? I mean if the queue fills up and they stop a render to make an adjustment and reset, will they loose their place in line?

Hope that makes sense.

Yes they will. As soon as a rendering is stopped, the next one will kick in. That's why you make the adjustments on a smaller image locally, before you commit to the big one on the network.

Ahh,

So the local client give you a good enough image that they can see what it will look like before they send it. That sounds like it will work, thanks!

Yes, of course. Network rendering is just a "facilitator", letting render images faster. It has nothing to do with quality.
