Note on Network Rendering: Bryce 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 and 6.1 can be used as network render server/host and have separate network render clients. It is possible to use the host as client as well. Note that the slowest machine is usually also the last to finish and hence pushes the total time up.
Bryce 6.1 uses only 1 core on dual core machines. Network rendering the test file using P2L97S, EPIAM1, AB40V12, Laptorn (all Win2k) and Foxconn (XP) results in 4:34, 6 seconds more than just using Foxconn (b). If the render job is started on AB40V12 instead of Foxconn, the file needs 6:00. Windows 2K needs over 1 minute to start the render on all clients, XP (Foxconn) starts after less than 5 seconds.
In order to use both cores in a dual core machine, install a virtual PC and run Lightning on the main machine and on the virtual machine it gets another IP an can thus take the role of a second client. This work around has been suggested by Hans Schneider (schneider01). There are some caveats using a virtual PC. I performed some Tests with all Lightning clients. Lightning 2.0b that came with Bryce 188.8.131.52 uses all cores as mentioned by Buaya in a DAZ forum. This network render application is compatible with Bryce 6.0 and Bryce 6.1.
