I am planning on building a renderfarm using crowdrender and I have a fundamental& basic question to start with. Does each GPU need to have the memory to render the scene or is that distributed somehow? I guess I am wondering whether I can use cheap-ish GPU´s or If I need at least an 8 GB Gpu for each computer. If it distributes the memory for a single image does it work differently for rendering animations, that is , when rendering an animation does it render each frame on a different computer or does it distribute each frame and render the one frame on all computers ? Also, would it be worth running 5 computers on cpu only and would all of them need to have enough memory to load the whole scene or this also somehow distributed ? Thanks, excited to test this out.

Hello CR team, You guys are amazing and can't wait to see your new updates. Please accept my below humble suggestions for your future progress. 1- Render % - I think it is kind of laggy sometimes but generally works fine. Feedback during the render is cool and make me addicted to watch it. 2- Render Tiles - It is not top urgent wish list at the moment but it could be nice to watch render while it is processing. 3- I am not totally sure but, i think we can make render unless all computers are in same server? what if i am at home and want to use laptops in my office to join my render party at home ? Is it possible ? 4- Interface - I like interface. K.I.S.S - Keep it Simple Stupid. 5- More often updates. :) Thanks for your efforts. Mete.
