View Full Version : How to distribute a SINGLE FRAME on a network?

We all know that screamernet allow to distribute the rendering of a certain number of frames on a network of PCs.
But there is some feature or plug-in that allow for a SINGLE frame to be "fragmented", rendered on a network, and "reassembled"?

It would be wonderful if one can join old and modern CPUs of his little network, to accelerate the render process of a single, very complex, image.
Why no one has ever thought about it?

Yes, there is render farming, but often is not a feasible way, since LW scenes are strongly plug-in dependent, and every machine has its own plug-in setup.

the majority of render farm software (eMule, tequila, butterfly netrender and mostly all the others) does this!
This feature exists for years!!!

Really interesting would be a netrendered F9!

I read a tutorial written by Thomas Mangold that explains how you can calculate the regions from your original big resolution camera so you can MANUALLY create cameras that will render those regions of your big image and then you only need to sticht those images together.

Here is the link:
