Patchwork 3D Enterprise 2021.1 X5

Installing Patchwork Lightmap Render

Install the Patchwork Lightmap Render software on the computers you wish to use for distributed rendering.

This application must be run manually in order to provide the distributed rendering service. If you restart Windows on one of the computers functioning with Patchwork Lightmap Render, you must also restart the Patchwork Lightmap Render application.


If you have installed Patchwork Lightmap Render on computers that are listening for a render task, but which aren't found by Patchwork 3D in the unit discovery window, verify that no network agents are set to block discovery broadcast packets.

If you do not have access to the network configuration in order to disable broadcast filtering, you can manually enter the name or the IP address of the Patchwork Lightmap Render machines.
