NR - Multi-Master Considerations
« on: March 13, 2019, 11:55:27 am »
I had a thread a while back about our top wishlist items for Network Rendering. I've got another!

We currently are utilizing two separate NR 'masters' one here locally in our studio for certain jobs/clients, and we've recently started working with 3DOTP's dedicated farm service, which has us using a second 'master' for overflow jobs, or specific client work.

Right now, with the current NR 8.2 UI, to be able to switch between the two, we need to check network connection settings, type in the IP, type in correct Port, connect, then login with appropriate User/Pass in a different window.

Switching back and forth between the two masters gets a bit cumbersome at times as you can imagine.

It may not be the case for most folks- but a UI update to make switching masters a little less cumbersome would be great! Even just having the ability to save IP/port configs + User/pass associations would be a great time saver.
