I am not a programmer even if I know a few thing about scripting. I am more of an artist (and currently 3ds max/vray/Deadline as well as houdini and sometimes Blender user).

I downloaded the installation files and then I was looking for install.exe! lol! I can only find .py or cmd.. I could launch the slave and render!!!

But now what?

Is there any tutorial for non programmer (with some scripting and command line knowledge) about how to use this interesting set of tools?

CGRU does not need any installation. And has no install.exe.
Just copy files and it will work.
It is done to simplify deploying on a farm.


Run start.cmd for a system tray Keeper.
If you run soft from Keeper it, soft will "know" about CGRU.

Generally CGRU is designed for sysadmins, TDs, render wranglers, not for a just an artists.

Ok thanks! Start.cmd! you just sent me to the next step!! With some time I can figure this out. I am a one man studio so I am artist, janitor, accountant,TD and all that jazz! I will just need more time if there is no tutorial. Then I can do a tutorial myself for all the artists out there.
