View Full Version : Third Party Render Controller Recommendation

03-29-2005, 09:42 AM
After spending time playing with the free stuff, I finally moved to Amleto 2.0 from Nodal Ideas. I absolutely LOVE it. Plus, their developers get back to me within a day with questions, etc, which isn't bad seeing as they're in Europe.

I just finished the first time through 13,000+ frames at 800 x 600 with Low AA, on over 70+ borrowed PC's. The new version automatically scans and finds missing/dropped frames. This was big problem for me due to the borrowed nature of the pc's. Since I didn't have control over most of the pc's, I would have them drop in and out often.

With a couple re-renders due to changes, this software has run for over 160 hours with very little issues.

Thanks to Alain & his crew at Nodal Ideas!

Does Amleto 2.0 use LWSN.exe? If so, how well does it work with 8.2? I have tried a couple of render controllers but the spaces in the path names seems to be a problem. Quotation marks work using LWSN at a command prompt but it would be nice to have a controller that would work well with 8.2 without having to reinstall 8.2 to get of spaces in path names.

Amleto and LW 8.2 works fine with me.

Do you have spaces in your path names?

ALL render controllers for LW HAVE to use LWSN.exe

Space in path should be handled just fine.
