Shoran Software announced the six-point release of RenderPal V2, the well-known render farm manager. This new version brings many great new features, plenty of improvements and important bug fixes, as well as support for four new renderers out-of-the-box: Modo, Arnold, RVIO and Pdplayer.
In this release, the net job dependency has been extended: A net job can now also wait for similar chunks of one or more superior net jobs, not just for the entire jobs. The dependent net job will check if one or more of its own chunks can be rendered by matching either their IDs, frame ranges or image slices against those of its superior net jobs.
Many applications can be (or even have to be) controlled via external script files. RenderPal V2 now makes creating such script files extremely easy with its script templates: Every renderer can automatically create a script file based on a template that uses a simple but very effective template language.
