question about rendering...

Post by kalamadeasidhe » Sat Nov 25, 2006 4:13 am

I want to setup network rendering for my school, but I am having trouble finding a list of command line arguments anywhere or a good way to setup network rendering. It will be in linux only. The machine would need to swap files automagically. What I mean is that students will throw renders into a folder and I will scan for them with a little script and set them to render. My question about it is this: does indigo have a timed kill mode so that it will render for x minutes/hours before quitting? Using the kill command seems really messy if I can get around it with an official method. I think indigo is great at making anything look good, so I'm pushing for the students to learn it. :)

Thanks!

Indigo doesn't have a mode (stop at x muts) like that built in yet, sorry.

Someone else did a Linux script to do a similar thing, already, I can't remember who, though.

The script can be found at this thread :

I think you will find it handy :) I haven't had a chance to test it out yet though, but from the description it seems to suit your needs..

oh, that's awesome, thanks! Do you have any to control a "render until mutations =" on network slaves?
