Zeroconf (aka Rendevouz/Bonjour)?

Post by v-i-c »

Has anyone looked at building zeroconf support into blender? I'm thinking mainly for rendering...I'd envision a pane in blender with a list of computers running blender that have zeroconf turned on (ala itunes playlist sharing) with the status of each instance (in-use, 3 items queued, free, 1 ghz, 256mb, 3 hours of uptime). There would be check boxes next to each instance, when you click the render button, any checked instances would get a slice of the render to work on, and then they would return the work items to the originating computer.

I know there are a bunch of "network render" scripts and programs for blender out there, I just think it would make a lot more sense for it to be part of the main blender application.
