OK I was crusing the internent and checking out all the
stuff. the -3 mode for LWSN said it can not network render is that
correct? Its a solo machine render is that right?

Again what happens to Worley plugins that need a key?

I also read where certain things did not render when someone tried it..

Thanks for any replies,
bob

Think of mode 3 as a non-interactive batch render. You can set up each machine in your network to render a portion of a scene from a shared folder.

As far as I know, Worley plugins do not require a key for ScreamerNet rendering.

You have to be careful to use a configuration file that makes all the necessary plugins available. If your render node is misconfigured, you will not get an error message, but you may not get the desired output.

lwsn -3 is used by some render controllers for network rendering, Spider comes to mind here.
