Gone in 20 seconds! Distributed Rendering addon


James from Crowd Render reports on a massive experiment they're doing.

So, I recently managed to get a hold of some really nice computers and thought this would be a perfect opportunity to test the addon we're making and see how it handles the infamous Mike Pan BMW benchmark when combining the power of nine Nvidia GTX cards.

The addon we're building is in closed alpha at the moment, we're keen to have more people join the pre-release testing crew, so if you're curious about personal render farms and what they can do, read on :)

I'm a software engineer, I've worked on numerous technologies over the past 10 years. I started out working on full motion flight simulators and then worked with embedded systems. I now work on building an add-on to support rendering using multiple computers over internet/local networks. I started using blender in 2009 and have done small projects with it since then, however, crowd render, our network rendering add-on is by far the biggest adventure with Blender to date.
