Using 2 or more computers to render one image
I am an architecture student and am really interested in the digital part of the field. I love to make 3d models and render them. I heard from my teacher that big companies like Pixar and other movie companies connect many supercomputers (maybe a hundered) together to render their images and movies. Now i dont have a supercomputer but i thought it would be cool if you could hook 2 computers together to increase processing speed and what would be involved there. I don't even know if this is possible without some crazy software but I was jsut curious. I recently did a render of 1 image for school and it still took 6 hours. It would be nice if I could cut down the time.
