Hi all,
I think this is my first post! Even though I've been using the forums as a resource for a while now. So, hello!

I've read through/tried out the extensive tutorial for DLI_SNUB-Launcher (which was amazing btw)here (http://dreamlight.com/webshop/utilities/snublauncher.html)
I have a couple questions if anyone could help me out.

Is it possible to render a single frame over multiple nodes using screamer net? And does there have to be a copy of lightwave on all the external macs I want to render with? Or can I just copy the screamer net file and directory?

The reason I'm asking is most of the work I do is for print. So I'm doing very hi-res, single frame renders. And they take a LONG time to render out.
But maybe I'm going about this in the wrong way?

Renderfarm Commander (http://www.brucerayne.com/renderfarm.html) will allow you to divide a single frame over multiple nodes using the Limited Region function.

Unfortunately it hasn't been updated in some time and is only compatible with LW 9.2 or below.
