The new features that V-Ray Swarm adds to V-Ray Distributed Rendering are:


Fancy Bullets
  • Ensures every machine is rendering with the same version of V-Ray.
  • Provides the ability to monitor and manage the entire V-Ray Swarm network through a web interface. The percentage of computing power currently being used is adjusted manually and interactively.
  • Monitors the state of each computer to make sure that V-Ray is active and ready, and restarts V-Ray if necessary.
  • Automatically discovers machines running V-Ray Swarm over the network, eliminating the need to manually input the IP address/hostname of each render server machine.
  • Automatically or manually assigns a computer to be the one that controls and manages V-Ray Swarm on the render node machines.

Each machine participating in the render job requires a V-Ray Render Node license. This includes the workstation initiating the rendering process.

V-Ray Swarm does not provide licenses. Instead, each render node must be connected to a V-Ray Online License Server.
