This video demonstrates how our new beta system for our network rendering system will work. In the video, Chris renders from his surface pro tablet using three computers from his local network, a remote location and the cloud (thanks to recent integration of our addon with BlenderGrid, we're able to render using powerful cloud computers as well). Basically you can construct a render farm from hardware anywhere on the internet as long as its running the addon.
Being able to render with all the hardware you can get your hands on has saved us in the past, the new crowdrender addon and platform will hopefully do the same for you. Check the video to see it in action.
