I started testing CrowdRender recently and I have some questions. Here's my specific setup if needed :
Blender v2.91.2 + CrowdRender v0.2.10 + 1 to 3 friends PCs connected via a network.
1- Can the Node PCs "join / connect" to the project if the rendering has already started ?
And can the Node quit the project during the rendering without any error or so ?
I'd like a feature similar to SheepIt that allow to finish the current Frame, then close Blender.
(In case a friend of mine need his computer but the render isn't finished yet, etc..).
2- On every Node PCs, once Blender is closed, there is the Blender CMD windows that remain opened.
We have to end the task via the Windows Control Panel in that case. Is this a bug ?
3- It is possible to free up memory on the Node PCs ?
It looks like opening and rendering multiple scene build up RAM usage, and I can free up this memory by restarting Blender locally, but is there a way to do the same on the Node PCs in case my friends aren't available to do it themself ?
4- I'd like an option or some way to show a "preview" of the rendered frame on the Node PC.
My friends are just curious to see my work, and this reminds me the preview that SheepIt does too :)
Sorry for all these questions, and thank you for this addon !
