I’ve recently discovered the Blender Net-Renderer add-on and I decided to network the machines at home to build a mini render-farm. I was successful setting the Master and enabling the service; I was also successful connecting the Slaves to the Master and sending the job(s) from the Client to the Master. At this stage, all seems to work beautifully and the job is featuring in the Master Monitor page, but it is featuring as queued (see screenshot). How can I un-queue the job and actually execute it? I must be missing something obvious: I have everything ready to go, but I cannot find the GO button anywhere!
I have checked three tutorial online and I could not find an explanation of how to actually execute a queued render job; in all the tutorials, the system just rendered the job; but I cannot find the trigger anywhere; I thought at one stage that the rendering would start automatically, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Also I found this add-on very scantily documented; is there any official documentation?
I am using Blender 2.75a.
Am I missing something obvious? Can anybody help? (I really need the render farm up and running)
Thanks in advance.
