Hi all. Does anyone know if there is a script or App that would notify my iPhone when a render is complete? If not it would be great to create one somehow!

If you run Amleto as a render Server, it has a field in the Setup Options to notify via email upon completion.

Thanks Paul Hart, but it does not seem to be available, at least looking at this site:

This was picked up and carried on by Darklight, with references in a different thread. Here is the current address for the ongoing development of this fine tool.

Donate if you find it useful. He has been very responsive to the user community, particularly as a volunteer coder.

If you're on a Mac, you could possibly use db-w.com's growl link to have growl send notifications to the prowl app on your phone.... at least in theory. I haven't tried it and I don't even have an up to date version of growl installed.

On the PC? I don't know. Part of the db-w tools (along with the growl implementation) is a master plugin for playing a sound file you specify for render done. I'm not sure how you'd alter that to send a message to you, but I suppose it could be done. :)

If you have Backburner installed it is supported in the Lightwave script to email notifications..

You can trigger email by low CPU usage - http://kb.eukhost.com/how-to-receive-high-cpu-usage-email-alerts-on-server/ or use AMP WINoff to execute email program before shutdown - http://www.ampsoft.net/utilities/WinOFF.php.

Some software from here ( http://auto-shut-down.qarchive.org/ ) can send email before low CPU usage shutdown.
