Can you use this method to speed up rendering?

Can you use this with Screamernet?

Is it worth it?

Thanx,

Vivek

I don't know if Lightwave or the LWSN applications are "parallelized" -- Scott_Newtek the Mac guy at NT may know, but if they aren't this application won't improve rendering.

In addition, if I understand it correctly, you wouldn't use this as a screamernet setup, because all the "nodes" are treated as one big processor.

if you remember this was a big thread on the old forum.
Ed mag,got Dauger,chris cox, all sorts of notables involved and arnieC.at the time newteks main "propeller head" (now with the luxo vaporware squad)sorta
said it was impossible because of the way the renderer worked( same goes for why some things cannot be multi threaded)
and the whole thing just went away....
like alot of other stuff around here:o
