The third point release of RenderPal V2 brings many major new features and improvements:
Most notable is the introduction of net job presets, which can be used to store several net job settings for later reuse. These presets can also be used in conjunction with the console remote controller, so they are an ideal addition for advanced pipeline integration.
We made many improvements to the frame checking. Manual frame checking can now be performed on single net job chunks, as well as on net jobs which are still pending, which wasn't possible previously. Also, most frame checking settings are now made automatically, making its configuration even easier.
To further automate automatic shutdown of unused clients in a render farm, it is now possible to specify a schedule for automatic idle clients shutdown activation. During these scheduled times, the automatic idle clients shutdown will be automatically activated for the corresponding pool.
The entire networking code of RenderPal V2 has been rewritten, which results in a huge traffic reduction, as well as improved performance. We also vastly improved the connection handling, leading to far less unnecessary connections made.
There are also numerous smaller additions and improvements (and some bug fixes, of course), like VNC integration, new console remote controller features like importing render sets and net job presets, a net job column to show the total CPU time of a net job and much more.
