How does the custom plugin feature work?

Drop & Render made a very unique system when it comes to working with Third Party Plugins. On our farm we have all versions of the plugins we support.

Here is how it works!

When you click the check scene button in our plugin, we will go over your scene and check all active third party plugins. After that we check what version you are using. All this happens in the background, meaning that you don't have to do anything.

For example:
You are working with Redshift as your render engine and X-Particles for your particles simulations. Our plugin will detect your versions and use this to create environment variables on our farm. When you submit the job it will load your plugin versions. This way we eliminate version differences, making sure your renders will come out like you created them.

We always have the latest releases ready, but you can always contact us to make sure.

Nothing happens when I click submit
