Can KT use multiple computers to render?

Can KT use multiple computers to render?

Postby Brodie » Wed Mar 19, 2008 2:56 pm

I have an opportunity to "farm" multiple pc's to speed up the animation rendering process but I don't know of a good way to do this using sketchup. Is there a plug-in that would give me this ability to use the ram from multiple networked pc's?

I'm perfectly happy w/ the quality of sketchup's animation (i'm not interested in getting too deep into textures and photorealism), I just wish it were faster.

Hi Brodie,

I'm going to start from what you've been writing last in your post...

I'm not exactly sure why you're asking about this here at the Kerkythea section...?!? :?
Kerkythea IS a render application capable of making ´photo realistic renders... ;)

But you are able to set-up a render farm using KT... :D
Please visit the KT Forum and make a search on network rendering... ;)

Thanks for the info. I guess my question, then, is can I essentially get the exact same look that my sketchup animation gives me and utilize KT's farming capabilities? That is if I just imported my sketchup model and ran an animation would it look the same as if I'd just ran the animation from sketchup or would it look different?

Basically I just want to do a sketchup animation (w/ the same sketchup 'look'), but faster, and I'm looking for any program that will let me do that.

Unfortunately not... :|
Kerkythea is a photo realistic render program using biased and unbiased methods... ;)

That's sort of what I figured unfortunately. Any other ideas on how to do what I'm trying to?
