RendView is a utility to have films rendered using POVRay
and post-processed in a local distributed UNIX/Linux environment. Features
include rendering/filtering a sequence of frames (f000.pov,f001.pov...)
or a list of scene files and POVRay clock values, tuning on per-frame
basis, and resuming partly-rendered images, all either completely
locally or distributed in a local IP network.
RendView has been used by me to render films on a 20-node dual processor
Linux pool and it rocked. However, due to lack of time, I did not do
very much testing with version 0.6.9 -- everything should work but
e-mail me in case of trouble.
New features: (0.6.7 -> 0.6.9)
- Checking mtime of additional files
- LDR passwords from file
- automatic compensation of different system times on client and server
- use of a simple fit strategy for how to assign frames to clients
when only a few frames are left
- and support for use of a shared directory (NFS) between clients and
server (normally RendView transferres files between client and server
using a TCP connection)
