‘Cell computing’ recently launched distributed rendering project called ‘sekigahara’.

They uses BOINC platform to distribute workloads to PCs over the internet.
Their renderer named “himawari” is written in Java and is a java ported version of an open source renderer.
The renderer seems distributed with workloads each time.

Distributed rendering on internet is exciting and challenging.

There is a problem to be overcomed(security, content protection, network traffic, etc),
but I think, in the future, studios and indivisuals might migrate to use such a distributed rendering platform as
fast and cheap render farm.
