Updates from Behind the Scenes 0


Development is still cracking away at code, as new and exciting features are emerging.  I’m sure you’ve already seen the design changes to the front page.  Today I’d like to share some of the “behind the scenes” features that we are currently implementing.

Render Node management has seen a LOT of development over the past week.  Registration for new nodes is now completely done through the front-end.  All of your nodes can be managed from one page as well.  Adding, Removing, Remote Rebooting, and Remote Shutdown are all working.  Node Clustering and Cluster management is working as well.  These are huge features for node management, and I would expect to see other’s added as time goes by.

Project Management and the Member Interface workflow is being (re)designed.  We’ve got a lot of the core functionality done, and now we’re “simplifying” the process of managing your render projects.  The UI elements are being designed with complete Ajax functionality, so uploading and downloading your project files is a breeze along with previewing your renders.

Queue Status Monitoring is emerging from the code as well.  Let’s face it, waiting in lines is inevitable.  But at least you’ll be able to monitor where your projects stand.  With the addition of new nodes and hardware upgrades (which you’ll hear about later), the queue will hopefully become a thing of the past.  We are truly aiming to get your jobs done as quickly and productively as possible.

I’ll be keeping all the readers up to date on things happening behind the scenes on a regular basis.  We’re working on the code every day, so things are constantly being added and improved.  One thing is certain, we are very close to launching the public beta.  To keep up to date on the latest news, subscribe to our RSS feed.
