Loki – render farm

What is Loki software ?

If you  having several computers work together can greatly decrease the total time needed.

Loki Render is a cross-platform job queue manager for rendering 3D frames.

Loki Render distributes the rendering of Blender 3D images named frames across several computer.

How to install the software ?

You can download this software from : sourceforge.net/projects/loki-render .

Extract the zip file.

  • Windows: double-click “lokiRender_062.exe”.
  • Linux/Mac/Solaris: browse to the extracted directory and run “launchLoki.sh“.
  • Or, on all platforms, just run something like “java -jar lokiRender_062.jar“.

How to set Loki software ?

I try this software with a blend file created with blender 2.49.

I use two computers .First  is server on Fedora 12 and second is on XP .

On File -> Preferences ( Ctr+P ) you can set the role of rendering . I set “Master and Grunt” on Fedora 12

and “Grunt” on XP. You can set the limit of memory space .

On second tab “local grunt”  you need to set the PATH of blender ( on Fedora is /usr/bin/blender.bin) .

The same settings must be set in Windows XP. The other settings are for advanced users.
