Sorry to be negative, but in all honesty, I’m so very disappointed with Team Render - STILL.
R18, most current version on 2 machines. Looking at Team Render Machines, both machines have green icons so they are good to go. I kick off a render, and notice after several frames have rendered that the second machine is still a green icon. It is not rendering. So I attempt to restart the client via the Team Render Machines window (right click, restart client…).
No change. So I have to log into the client remotely and restart the client software manually. OK cool. restart the render and all is well. But I notice a problem with the render and need to stop and make a tweak then start it rendering again.
The problem: when I go into picture viewer and do the command “stop render” it DOES stop rendering on the host machine’s client, and the picture viewer stops updating. HOWEVER…the remote client (my second machine) remains with an orange icon and does not stop rendering. I thought maybe it was just finishing up the frame it was on (which would still be wrong, as stop means stop) but no, it is churning through the frames it was assigned.
Please, for the love of all things, Team Render has GOT to go. NET was so much better in every way.
