Blender 2.62: Addons

Changes up to revision 2994. Before editing or adding items, please read the guidelines for editing the changelogs.

Network Render

Web Interface

The network render master now has a new web interface. The previous interface is still available, you can switch between the two, but it might get phased out in the future.

Point Caches

Point caches can now be baked using network render, distributed over multiple computers. The result can be retrieved as a zip file from jobs page in the web interface. - Template:Commit, Template:Commit, Template:Commit

Slaves and jobs can now also be tagged to specify which slaves should handle which types of jobs. By default render jobs are tagged with "render" and baking jobs are tagged with "baking".

There were also fixes related to handling of smoke point caches, and dynamic paint point caches are now supported. - Template:Commit, Template:Commit, Template:Commit

Other
  • The render engine to use can now be selected (for example Cycles instead of Blender Internal) - Template:Commit
  • Add Force Upload option on master to force dependencies upload and download (don't reuse local copies outside of slave cache)
  • Cancelling jobs on the master should be much more responsive now- Template:Commit
  • Add save on job option (default false) to save the current file before sending a rendering blender job. - Template:Commit
