Enable either Vuo editor or Vuo command line tools to be able to render on distributed computer networks. To start this feature possibly begin with allowing a "render frame range" value for command line render. Obviously composition that use random generators could be problematic - however a further feature could be added in future which allows random values to be "baked" into composition. Thus each playback of randomality could be controlled. (Maybe a Boolean on the random nodes: bake)

●●○○ — A few weeks of work


●○○ — Appeals to current community
  • Extend the vuo-export command-line utility:
    • specify rendering range by frames (a subset of the range specified by the existing --time and --duration flags)
    • save to individual image files
  • Provide a render agent app to run on other computers, advertising availability
  • Provide an interface in Vuo Editor to find and use render agents on other computers

I've opened this feature request for community voting, and added a tentative plan above.

composition that use random generators

The Make Random Value and Make Random List nodes have alternate versions with Seed inputs, for situations where you need to be able to repeat the same sequence of values.

This feature may also be

This feature may also be important for rendering material that does not use all system resources, but would be able to use more resources by distributing jobs on the same machine. Compositions that have processes that are intensive- but don't use multiple cores comes to mind. (they do exist!)

When we (Team Vuo) plan each release, we try to implement as many of the community's top-voted feature requests as we have time for.

If anyone would like to help this happen sooner, we're also accepting commissioned work.
