What is POVmosix ?
Povmosix is Qt/KDE
program designed to provide parallel povray
rendering in a
environment. It "split" the scene rendering (called task
) in a set of "sub jobs"
and these sub jobs can be migrate in openmosix environment. When all
job are finished the output image is generated from the partial jobs
output. A Qt/KDE GUI allow a simple and powerfully interface to setup
and change the rendering attributes and to manage the process
Do we need to change something in original povray source code ?
No, no modifications is necessary. Povray 3.0
and 3.5 are fully supported.
Are there some restriction or limitation in
povray usage ?
