Request: Guide to setting up a simple render farm for us Indie users Jan. 25, 2018, 8:49 a.m.

Hqueue is actually really easy set up but does require some networking knowledge, and if the idea of easy is that you can copy stuff to individual machines and point them to the same output folder and render than my guess is that you might need little help and should watch some networking tutorials. At the very least you need one machine as the server, other machines set up as clients, they all need to be able to see the same network share, and from what I remember there are some basic host and port setting. Opening Hqueue is as simple as opening it in a browser…I have seen some janky hqueue set-ups that work but generally, and every time I have set it up I have at a minimum…

1. Had a network that was controlled by a server with domain control
2. Machines set with static IP addresses
3. Properly shared network directories
2. Consistent naming across machines, this is not necessary but is a good idea
