  1. Hey guys, i just found out, that it's possible to let several machines render on the same frame over the network with Mantra, similiar to VRay Distributed Rendering for example. I tested it out and it seems to work. The render statistics explicitly list the different machines and their contribution in percent. One thing though seems a little strange: I encounter no performance boost. Instead of doing more work in the same timeframe, Mantra seems to just distribute the existing work. The satelites, as well as my own machine, dont run at 100% but at 30% instead. If i turn of -H, my machine runs at 100% again. I have "Use Max Processors" turned on. Also tested around with the tiled render options.... Anybody any ideas? A VRay DR equivalent in Mantra sounds pretty awesome
