Specular has at last upgraded its new version of BackBurner (version 3.1) which is now claimed to offer 100 per cent crash-proof distributed rendering for Infini-D’s 3.1 upgrade of late last year, which supported QuickDraw 3D and Quicktime VR for the first time. Distributed rendering of course is where you use as many of the computers on the network as you possibly can. Crashproof doesn’t mean that Backburner won’t crash, simply that it can recover from any crash on the network without loss of data. The app will also support YARC NuSprint and MacRageous accelerator boards. Upgrade price should be zero, like InfiniD 3.1, but it seems to say here around 100.
