CrowdRender is an awesome add-on for network rendering (currently I think the best one at least for single frame renders).
Since its beginning a few years ago, it hasn’t gotten much financial support from its users but last week, its developers have been asking for urgent help on their crowdfunding which, if insufficient, may require them to shut down the project (which would be bad news for people like me).
Even if this add-on is not useful to you right now, it may be for your future projects, in which case I encourage you to give it some thought. Donating as little as a 4$ per month can save it, if enough people do it.
Here’s the crowdfunding page:
and here’s their latest update video: https://youtu.be/3GVcxbLNeIk
I use this add-on for my daily job and could not do it nearly as efficiently any other way. An online renderfarm is not an option for me and any other network rendering tool out there that still works doesn’t do it nearly as well as CrowdRender.
Feel free to ask me about it and thank you for your attention.
