ARMB (Another Rendering Manager for Blender) is an add-on that allows rendering animations across multiple computers over a network.

Key features:

  • Network Rendering: Render animations across multiple computers in a network.
  • Frame Allocation: Allocates frames to workers based on their speed.
  • Manual File Synchronization: Requires manual transfer of necessary files to each computer.
  • Image Dimension and Scale Sync: Synchronizes image dimensions and percentage scale across all workers.
  • Flexible Setup: Allows in-flight changes, such as adding/removing workers and changing render settings during a render.
  • Lightweight and Safe: Uses minimal processing power and memory while rendering and saves every file after rendering.
  • Supports Multiple Configurations: Can render different files on each worker or use multiple workers on the same computer (e.g., one on CPU and one on GPU).
