The latest release of the popular Smedge render farm manager and queue software is now out. You can now run Smedge with no license installed and render on up to 3 machines for free! Or you can get a 2 week demo license to run on an unlimited number of nodes, and try Smedge out at full scale.
Smedge gives you enterprise class performance and reliability, proven in production on networks of up to 1,000 nodes, while being by far the easiest manager to install and use. It controls all of the popular rendering applications, and gives you incredible flexibility to control custom tools or integrate into any pipeline. And if you need more than 3 machines to render, no other render manager comes close to the features and performance you get for the price of Smedge.
Smedge includes sophisticated networking and control in an intuitive and highly automated system, so you don't need any special training or espensive on-site technicians and developers to get it running, even at large scales. And it works seamlessly across Windows, Mac, and Linux machines, so you can integrate all of your hardware assets into a capable farm.
