Hello, I’m hoping someone can point me to good resources on setting up for team rendering. Thanks for any help you can share!
Specifically, I have two computers (specs below) that I could connect for the purpose of speeding up picture viewer and final renders in C4D.
Would the speed improvement be significant enough to justify the effort creating this setup? (I assume so.)
What would be the best method to physically connect the two computers? (I assume Thunderbolt.)
What software, if any, would I need to install on the slave computer?
I have an 18-month educational institution license of R18 Studio. Would this create any issues for team rendering?
Can I install C4D on both of my computers with this type of license?
