Crowdrender update: bugfixes & new features

Merry Christmas!! And just in time it seems we managed to get our latest version of a distributed rendering addon for blender shipped. Its free and you can download it from our website, providing you're happy to create a free account :). The project is still in the alpha stage, so we're hoping for lots of artists to test it and provide feedback ;)

The version we have released was tested by over 250 artists through 13 revisions. We've been working hard to make the addon more stable and add features that we've been asked for. We're starting this all again with the next release, 0.1.3. which we'll be releasing in late January/early February in 2018. We've left registrations open to get early access to this build and help us test and refine it before release.

Click this link to get the add-on (note, you'll need to create a free account to access the software)

Also check our release video and tutorial on how to use the new version :D -

About Author


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.
