The twelfth point release of RenderPal V2 adds support for multiple jobs to the RenderPal V2 Submitter and brings many other features, like strip rendering for 3ds Max and support for V-Ray for SketchUp. Below you'll find a brief description of what is new in this version; release notes and the complete changelog can be found at the bottom of this post.
- Multiple jobs in the RenderPal V2 Submitter
The RenderPal V2 Submitter now supports multiple jobs, a feature often requested by our users. Also, all submitter scripts were updated to make use of this great new feature: For each layer, camera and similar items, a separate job will be created, each with its own settings.
- Camera-specific overrides for Maya
The submitter script for Maya now supports Camera-specific setting overrides. Follow this link to learn more about this useful feature.
- Strip rendering for 3ds Max
3ds Max now supports so-called strip rendering, a "light version" of image slicing. This allows a single image to be rendered across multiple nodes using 3ds Max.
- V-Ray for SketchUp
RenderPal V2 now ships with support for V-Ray for SketchUp, one of the most popular plugin renderers for SketchUp.
- Client heartbeat broadcasts
The Windows client will now cast a heartbeat to all broadcast addresses of your network if no heartbeat address has been set, making setting up your render farm even easier.
