- Render frame by frame: It means the system will render your scene frame after frame. There is only one machine to render your task. After one frame is done, the next frame will be rendered right away. The advantage is, you are allowed to check the result of first several frames. If the result is not correct, you may pause your task immediately to save time and budget. If it is correct, you may switch to "Full-speed rendering", which will speed up the render and assign machines as many as possible to your task.
- Full-speed rendering: This render mode is for experienced users or tasks which have rendered out several frames correctly. Using full-speed rendering will speed up your rendering since the system will assign machines as many as possible to it.
Lastly, click "Next" and a render task will be submitted to the system. After that, you will get a task number which allows you to monitor the progress of task on the control panel.
