C4DtoA - Licence for team render machines

Hoping someone can clarify things as I have looked here on the forums and on the web and not found a clear answer.

I am currently using the trial version but hope to purchase a single user licence in the near future. I believe the trial does not support team render so i don't think i am able to test.

I have a few spare machines that I would like to use as a small render farm.

Questions are...

Do I need to purchase a licence for each of the team render machines?

Is there a limit on the amount of machines I can use?

Can I have team machines that are both Windows and OSX?


Thanks for any insight.

Thanks for the info and links Stephen.

I was worried that would be the case. I guess I have been a bit spoiled with Corona as it is about £200 cheaper and includes 3 render nodes.

Not sure why there is such a big price difference between the US and UK store for Arnold either. The difference is way more than an exchange rate thing.

  • You can use the trial and some unlicensed copies of Arnold to test Team Render. You'll just get a watermark, that's all.
  • You need an Arnold license for each machine.
  • You can use any machines as you have Arnold licenses. There's no limit imposed by Arnold.
  • You can have a mix of machines. I think the only difficulty would be dealing with paths if you want to keep assets on a separate file server instead of letting TeamRender copy them locally.
