Hi all!
I am looking for an implemetation of povray that could be used with mpi, in
order to make parallel rendering in our cluster.
I have found an implementation called mpi-povray, but only works with the
version 3.1g of povray, and we need work with a newer version.

Thank you
Omar

Read the beta pages: 3.7 has MP capability

  3.7 has SMP capability, but it doesn't yet have clustering capabilities.

ooops, must have overread the cluster part.

Thank you for your answers,

I know that the new version 3.7 of povray have SMP, but I need work with all the
nodes of my cluster, not only with one of them.
I have found others alternatives to MPI with povray that support the version
3.5, but I want to communicate our computers by the faster way, with OpenMPI.

Thank you,
Omar

Hello

MPI is a way to render faster but not the only one. It's fine when you 
already have an MPI farm.

If it's something from scratch, maybe you should look at 
http://www.dynebolic.org/ : the cluster way.
OpenMosix is another cluster manager, but not maintened anymore. 
http://openmosix.sourceforge.net/

By the way, "recent" achievements on P2P networks and SMP makes me wondering 
about a P2P rewrite for POV.
Just connect your PCs, let them talk and work, and get everything faster... 
For POV 5 ?

Regards,
 Luc H.

There is also httpov -- http://columbiegg.com/httpov which works very nicely for
me (using the google computing services and amazon aws - a bit expensive!).

PVMPOV, similar to MPIPOV -- http://pvmpov.sourceforge.net isn't really
maintained any more for the last 11 years or so (but it still compiles nicely
with the recent gcc versions)..

And from time to time, I manage to update it. Yesterday, I published 0.9 of the
server, which makes it possible to render just parts of an animation, instead of
starting all over if you just want to tweak something in the middle.
