Well, what do you know. Not even two days have passed and I can already add another product to the list of products that support Blender. Last Monday a new version of RenderPal 2004 was released.
RenderPal is a system for distributed rendering for various renderers, including Maya, Mental Ray, XSI, Lightwave and now also Blender. Clients are available for Windows, Linux and MacOSX.
From the RenderPal website:
Just one month after the last update, we are now happy to announce the next installment of RenderPal 2004 Server: Version 1.70. This new release adds several new features, including 4 new renderers (Maxwell, RenderMan for Maya, V-Ray for 3dsMax, and Blender), a helpful IP Cache, the ability to search for a specific render setting in the render set settings list, a handy Render to Print calculator and user-defined External tools. There are also several other changes and improvements, as well as some bug fixes.
While you have to pay for their server software, their Workstation version is freeware:
RenderPal 2004 Workstation (which has been updated as well, bringing it to Version 2.60) is now freeware! Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, your eyes didn't fool you, everyone can now use the full version of RenderPal 2004 Workstation for free. Go grab your copy and spread the word!
More detailed information is available from the features page. If I can get my hands on a trial license, would anyone be willing to write a review for us? (Please provide some samples of articles/reviews that you've previously written when you apply).
