3dsmax VRay SP1
This update is required if you want to use the new VRay version.
Without this update VRay will freeze.

rrViewer ETA
If a frame is rendering, then rrViewer states when the frame was started.
And if RR knows a frame time (after a few frames), it shows an ETA based on the client speed.
This feature require the render scripts to create a placeholder file when a frame starts.
Almost 3D render scripts have been changed in the last time to create these files.
(Cinema4D is the only widely-used 3D render app missing the new changes)

Min Image Size
There is a new rrConfig setting "min HD file size" for each image format (exr, tga, ...).
If you do *not* set the Min File Size for a job, then RR uses the job output resolution to calculate a min file size.
Now the rrServer can detect broken frames even before the Sequence Check post-script is executed.

Nuke video creator post-script
A new example post-script to create videos via Nuke.
Based on a Nuke preset comp you create.

Houdini
Added KSO support for rendering and .ifd creation.
HtoA is now completly supported with .ass creation.
.IFD creation is not able to to Local Render Out.
Added placeholder frames to see if frames have been started in rrControl and by which rrClient via rrViewer.

3dsmax
Added placeholder frames to see if frames have been started in rrControl and by which rrClient via rrViewer.

UIServiceTakeOver mode
New commandline flags to disable working hours and to allow the auto shutdown when user logged in.
The flag for allowing multiple clients is not required any more.

Renderer Version
There is a new job setting "renderer version".
It can be used to switch between different Arnold/Redshift versions.
At the moment it is set by the Maya and Houdini submission plugins and it is used for Maya Redshift.

Min File size
A new setting that RR can tell if a rendered frame cannot be finished without opening the file.
These frames are displayed in rrControl as currently rendering and rrClient and rrServer will delete them after rendering.
Note: "rrConfig/Image verification/File size too small" should be enabled.

3dsmax: New scripted render
There is a new menu item in 3dsmax to submit jobs.
The job will use new render config which use a render script instead of the limited 3dsmax batch render commandline.
This allows some features like KSO, local render out, 3dsmax stereo cams, render path overrides and any script command you can imagine.
Scene state sets are currrently missing, but will be implemented. You need to reinstall the 3dsmax submission plugin via rrWorkstationInstaller.

Mantra: Local render out
Mantra .ifd renderings are able to use the Local Render Out feature of RR.
(Requires to set Local scene Copy as well)

Modo
New job setting to override the verbose level. Workaround for the issue that modo does not report if a scene cannot be loaded (e.g. missing textures)
Workaround for the issue that Layer "enabled" overrides inside passes are not applied while rendering.

XML submission: Per-Job submitter Settings
You can now use <SubmitterParameter> tags per job.
Instead of setting them once for all jobs.

Unicode
There have been fixes for unicode names in all areas of RR.
The render log catcher, rrControl render log viewer, rrSubmitter scene files display and multiple submission scripts have been changed.

Disable/Deassign if limits are reached
If a client reached x times a limit for a job, it is deassigned (rrConfig setting).
If the number of limits reached of all clients are higher than the job setting "Max Limits" then the complete job is disabled.
Limits are reached if either
- a client renders more time than job setting "Max Render time".
- the job takes more memory than the machine has ("Abort if system memory gets low").

Seperate Sequence Divide Min/Max for compositing
The rrSubmitter default settings for Sequence Divide Min/Max are now seperated
New names: SeqDivMINComp=1~1 SeqDivMAXComp=1~1

Required Memory
- A new job setting Auto Max Memory will collect the memory usage of a job at a client and updates the Required Memory setting of the job.
- The rrServer takes the summed Required Memory into account when sending a second/third job to a multi-threads-enabled client

Pythonconsole 64bit
The python interpretor is now available for 64bit.
