Who wants to render faster? Everyone!! We’ve covered this topic a bit before but with Team Render for Cinema 4D, you can set up a render farm quickly and easily. Here are a couple of tutorials from Maxon and Greyscalegorilla, who happen to be having a One Day Sale today at Toolfarm!

Team Render replaced Net Render in R15 and it's fully integrated into Cinema 4D very easy to set up. "It allows distribution of frames for animation and buckets for still images to multiple computers on the network." - Maxon.
