Author Topic: Electric sheepy-bulber animation processing?  (Read 2505 times)

You must have seen electric sheep? a screensaver that uses many on line computers to render fractal flames, so each user gets every day a new animation worth masses of processing hours every day.

If we shared 100ds of mandelbulb computers, a 5 minutes animation in mandelbulber would only take 30 minutes to render, and we could have masses of animations at 1080p.

the best animation programmers like bib!!! could each make many movies for us, and we would watch them. it doesnt matter about the screensaver code, as long as all the movies are available for download and are 1080p, that would be most excellent.

i will have my first bionic multitool hand implant next week, i will only be a true android when i have my head transplanted with a bluetooth touchpad. it would be easier to have a flatpenel head than the human one.

Nice idea, something like a fractalforums.com cloud smiley
Problem is my pc is running 24/7 always rendering in bg Grin with closed eyes wouldn't be much ressources left for the cloud wink
Love the electricsheep screensaver, particularly the genetic voting system, where you can vote the fractals you like, and the ones with best votings combine to new ones.
Sadly that feature doesn't work for the unix-versions sad

Most distributed processing protocols balance the work among users so that you could see usage statistics and that the work is balanced. I was just curious to see if there was a sandbox which can run any application and send all the processing requests to a supercomputer made of other users.

It turns out that there kind of is one, called global processing unit, but you would have to have a way of running your executable so that it loads one file and saves another automatically to use it with the application wrapper, in other words you could write a line that tells your fractal program to load a setting and it would automatically save an image or a video.
Otherwise, you could use Mandelbulber/Mandelbulb3d in there as an open window if someone created a plug-in for it.
EDIT -GPU looks good but I couldn't even get it to run Pifast

there are about 30 developers for it on source Forge, and version 2 will be able to:
- client/server architecture should allow scaling of nodes up to several thousands of clients
- client is in Freepascal and can be compiled on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX

There are also multi-platform distributed processing toolkits, which can be adapted to work within a program, but they seem more complicated.

I am going to write to the authors of the two programs to see if they think they are usable with global processing unit.

I became aware of electricsheep.org a few hours ago...makc told me about it. (Thanks makc).

I think the people at electricsheep could give a hand, or even cooperate, since that would increase their popularity.

I usually have lots and lots of extra cycles in my PC.
