Get a 6-month free trial!
We are currently offering an exclusive 6-month free trial to early adopters. To pick up on this offer, make sure to download the Render Accelerator Extension before December 31, 2016. Starting January 1, 2017, the Render Accelerator Extension will be available for purchase at USD 50.
Distributed rendering is a way to spread the process of rendering across one or several computers connected to a network. This, in turn, makes more use of idling computers and could reduce the time it takes for renderings to complete. One scenario could be a dealership that purchases a really powerful computer designated for rendering, and then have all staff computers connect to that machine.
In CET Designer, this is implemented through two components; CET Designer equipped with the Render Accelerator Extension (clients) that you can purchase here, and a small freestanding application (the CET render server) that you install on each computer that should serve as a resource in the rendering network. Installing the render server is free for as many computers as you like and it doesn’t require CET Designer or a license, and you can download it from here: http://www.configura.com/cet/support/downloading-the-render-accelerator-installer/
