Blender Studio's Render Management Software, Flamenco V3, Now in Beta!


Flamenco 3 has just entered beta! The third iteration of Blender Studio's open-source render manager is a full re-write following the design principles revealed in the announcement a few months ago which are:

  • Simplicity: Flamenco should be up and running in as few steps as possible. It should work “offline”, and not depend on any online service.
  • Transparency: It should be possible to quickly find out the state of the job queue, workers, tasks, down to the output of each render command.
  • Interactivity: The user interface should be fast and always interactive, delivering a smooth user experience.
  • Robustness: Flamenco should be stable and predictable in its behavior, handle errors gracefully and clearly.

The new version replaces V2 which had a five-year tenure at the Studio. Flamenco 3 is being battle-tested as the render manager for the "Heist" open film currently in production. Flamenco's developer Sybren Stüvel released a quick start video that shows just how simple the software is to set up and get running.
