Here's a question for you all. I was getting real slow renders from my ScreamerNet set up. I set up a super simple anim (bouncing ball sort of thing), set up the nodes, and sure enough it took roughly 4 times what it took a single machine to complete. All the proceedures and nodes work as advertised, but real slow. Now I may answer my own question here as I tell you that the machines are all different, ex one is a dual G4 OS9.1 another is a G4 titanium laptop OS9.5. Should all the boxes be the same, or do you just need may boxes to reap the benefits of distributred rendering?
Cheers
Jeff
