  1. With the Indie license we can't generate ifd files. I never used ifd, so I am wondering what kinds of problems could I met if I use indie to render with Mantra on a small render farm (for example using 6 computers using 3 indie licenses and 3 fee engine licenses which is the limit the indie license can support). I read this: http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/render/ifd_workflows and this: http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/render/ifd But I'm not sure what real difference it could make in the pipeline other than being able to send a smaller file over the network instead of the whole scene. Is it just a matter of the size of the file we send to the slaves for network rendering? if it's the case it should not be a problem for me since I work alone and so I don't have a bottleneck in network transfer and cand distribute huge files pretty fast on my network. Or is there any other differences it could make? also are ifd concerning only mantra or can they be used with redshift, renderman, arnold?
