Finally is avaible for download the first beta of the project Piovra here:

Download and test it couse we need more and more beta testers and manuals translators!

Piovra provides installers for WINDOWS or Linux/BSD/Mac, a terminal and a GUI interface, lots of features all easy to use.

We think that Piovra will be the best renderfarm for blender that you can ever test!

Be patient if you do not succeed to find all the information that you
desires couse we are still working on this project.
However we wish to publish NOW the program so as to open this
project to all the comunity of blender.

Hey Pier, I haven't tested it yet, but just wanted to let you know that I (and to some extend the Blender Foundation) have been giving Pivra some free publicity :deal:

Check the Blender-Linux-FAQ that has been distributed with every linux copy of Blender since 2.35, or read it on-line at (seems like I need to update the Piovra URL tought).

Just one question, what time of render do you use? Is it the Blender internal one?

Congratulation and thanks for your work!
