render by parts, will OpenMosix speed the process?

Postby pearl » Sun Mar 14, 2004 4:01 am

I've been reading up on OpenMosix a little bit and getting eager to try it out.

Does anyone know if Blender's rendering by parts will see an advantage of using OpenMosix?

As a case example, I'd like to see if a single frame split into 2 Xparts and 2 Yparts (total of 4 parts) and rendered on 4 nodes using OpenMosix would come out four times faster than on one node.

I'm pretty sure you wouldn't see any speedup
currently. To see a speedup each render by
part would have to be a seperate process and
currently its not.

Do you think the render by parts will eventually become separate processes?
