I have set up network rendering in blender across 3 apple xserves which are set up as 1 master and 2 are slaves, and used my macbook pro as the client. So when I send a job to the xserves the rendering is very, very slow. I can render the same animation on my macbook pro faster than rendering it over the network. I thought that was the whole idea behind network rendering was to render faster than using just one computers resources. just to note, the xserves are over twice as powerful as my macbook pro. What am I doing wrong?
