someone asked me if his ethereum mining rig would also be usable as a renderfarm.
well his hardware specs where kinda special…
But setting up a renderfarm, is kinda different then just installing Blender on a linux box.
I wonder if there are ready solutions, that have a form of a management pc, and pushing jobs to a large environment (100+ PC’s with 6 top level cuda cards), would get properly distributed. Apparently he’s a big player in this field (and i kinda doubt that it will be profitable to him), but he is considering maybe some charity time… he was still considering the pricing model for rgent jobs.
Anyway rendering is completely new to him, he’s amazed by what i make.
Now i wonder if there’s maybe some software around / scripts.
That can turn part of his enviroment in a render farm.
Only a few machines would allready be a dramatic difference as compared to my own render times.
