Crowdrender - New Release - Faster Rendering in Blender

Dropping in from Australia, we've updated our addon to be compatible with Blender 2.92, its has a few more tweaks and enhancements but.. the main highlight is that Its capable of distributing rendering in cycles when using the latest Optix hybrid rendering (currently in Blender 2.92), using both CPU and an Nvidia GPU together.

This is pretty much the fastest rendering you'll get in Blender! Imagine having a fleet of Threadripper/RTX3090 PCs all rendering your blend together! Watch the video to see the highlights of the new update:)

Also as part of our development fund progress, we've bumped V0.2.7 of the addon out of early access so its available for free, all you need is to create an account on our website and you can download it and try your hand at network rendering :). You can setup your own render farm and get render times down with one free bit of software.

If you'd like to support our development fund and make crowdrender more capable, just head to https://www.crowd-render.com/crowdfunding :)

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.

  1. Works like a charm. I have three(3) station in my 'RenderFarm, and with a little manual fine tuning, all three(3) stations complete their task at the same time!! It will calibrate its' load levels itself well, mostly on animations. What a wonder. What used to take most of a night to render, now it's complete in minutes! using GPU and Optix and Blender 2.92. If there are any 'mishaps' I scrub the CrowdRender folders, then re-load/re-sync the stations, and it runs like a charm. Thumbs up to the CrowdRender team. Subscribe as a Patreon to get the latest release version. Highly recommended!!
