Distributed Rendering
  • Step 1 - Create a Shared folder
  • Distributed Rendering is disk intensive.
  • For optimal performance find a machine that is not heavily utilised.
  • The shared folder can be on a server or local machine.
  • Avoid a using a machine that is used in the rendering process.
  • The folder should not be used for any other purpose other than Distributed Rendering.

  • Step 2 – Sharing the Shared folder
  • Right Click on the Folder and select Properties (Windows XP – other OS may vary).
  • From the “Sharing” tab enable “Share the Folder”.
  • Select the “Permissions” button and “Allow” Full Control.
  • When complete double check the Read Only attributes of the folder are disabled.

  • Step 3 – Start the Process Controller
  • From the Start Menu > Bentley start the “Process Controller for Distributed Rendering”
  • Edit the Shared Directory path by selecting the folder created in Step 1.
  • The DR controller will recommend changing the network or UNC path to a local.

C:\temp\

\\machine_name\c$\temp\

  • Step 4 – The Scheduler
  • From the System Tray, Right Click and select Open Scheduler. The Scheduler will;
  • Allow you to control your machines participation in Distributed Renderings,
  • Specify the maximum number of MSProcessors to launch for DR jobs,
  • Change the Shared Folder location for DR.

  • Step 5 – The Job Monitor
  • From the System Tray, Right Click and select Open Job Monitor. The Job Monitor will;
  • Allow you to check the status of the jobs submitted to the Shared folder.
  • Allow you to see which machines are processing.
  • Allow you to Pause, Resume and Cancel jobs.
  • Allow you to check the operation of previous job logs.

  • Step 6– Submitting a Distributed Rendering Job
  • To commence the DR select the “Begin Network Render” button from Render dialog.
  • Settings can be adjusted from the “Begin Network Render” drop down.
  • The Network Image History folder must be seen by all participating computers.
  • The Maximum Tile Size works best for larger tiles. Smaller tiles require more machines.
  • Group – Specifies the distributed rendering that will be allowed to participate in this job.
  • Include Current Session helps the most powerful machine complete the CI process.

  • Tips
  • Only one machine will Compute the Illuminations.
  • The first machine that attempts to find a new job will handle the illumination
  • computations. The ability to designate a machine will be added in the future.
  • All resources such as materials are packaged and transferred to the network during
  • the Distributed Rendering process. Due to varying network and PC performances
  • smaller images may take longer to render using DR.
  • Larger images and animations see the fastest results using DR.
  • Slower machines can slow the DR process. A slower machine can block an intensive
  • tile rendering. For example - Leaves on a tree.
