(Commercial) Blendergrid Add-on Review
Closed, ArchivedPublic


Commercial add-on to use the online renderfarm Blendergrid

The goal is to get the add-on reviewed and included in Blender by default (by becoming a sponsor as well).

The add-on allows users to:

  • Upload all their project files to Blendergrid with a single click
  • Start and stop running render jobs on Blendergrid from within Blender
  • Automatically download rendered frames as they are being rendered


  • We are including BAM as a wheel. Blender already has BAM included, but it has a bug. We submitted a patch for it which is included in our BAM version. Once it's applied to the main version, it would be a one-liner to switch it over.
  • We are still working on documentation.

I forget what our policy is for commercial add-ons but @Vuk Gardašević (lijenstina) will know how we should proceed here

While there is no issue with the inclusion of a commercial platform support in Blender, there will be no more Blender releases until the 2.8 series, and the add-on would need some adaptation to introduced API changes / workflow.
We'll let know the add-on developers about the possible needed modifications and the exact format in which the add-ons will be distributed with / for Blender.
