In this video we show how you can easily make a render farm out of pretty much any computer that can run blender. If that sounds like something you'd be into, read on and of course watch the video too :)
Up until fairly recently I had been using two laptops to render. I used our addon to enable rendering using both of them at once as this pretty much halved my render times, which was great, though it was still slow. So I bought some extra computers online at auction (they were cheap, but still able to run blender reasonably well) and started to use them with the laptops I had, and halved my render times again. This video is a tutorial of what I did, and why I did it.
In this tutorial you'll learn about how to use our addon to build a render farm in a really easy way, you'll also learn about why when considering any computer for use in a renderfarm, you'll want to have a decent amount of RAM, I even show you how to upgrade RAM in a desktop PC. Finally you'll learn about how to manage the many computers you might end up with without having to buy a keyboard and mouse for each one!
