Question About Host Machine & Render Nodes

Just a quick question. I'm thinking about upgrading to a 64 bit computer. If that will be my new host, that will leave me with 2 computers to be used as render nodes, but they are only 32 bit. Will this be a problem? I'm using C8 Pro.

Thanks, Stuie

    Hi Stuie :)

    64 bit can talk to 32 bit systems, so it's all good.

    there have been issues on OS X with batch rendering, though they may have been resolved as I haven't used it in a while (multi-node rendering is most useful when the additional nodes are similar to, or greater in power than, the master node).

    Thanks for the input. I'm on a PC so the OS X won't be an issue for me. As soon as I'm all caught up with paying for my booth at both WonderCon and Comic-Con, I'm upgrading my computer.
