Hi there, love the node mode button. But some suggestions that might make it very nice.
- Add a scheduler. So you can schedule a workstation to enter Node Mode automatically. This can be with a warning. For instance, I’m still working at 12AM, but the node mode has been activated to start at 12AM. There’s a little popup stating that node mode will be activated in the next 30 seconds. If nothing is done it automatically starts with a predefined affinity.
- Add a warning to Exit Node Mode. I accidentally clicked the button and it immediately shuts down the render, so time wasted. Might leave a little warning, are you sure… etc. Or allow for the current render to finish first as well. (So 3 options, cancel, terminate immediately, terminate after current render).
- “Dynamically” change the affinity. Say for instance, I started Node mode because I’m leaving the office for a few hours. I come back and want to start working but I don’t have any rendering to do, just some light photoshop or modelling or whatnot. So I want to keep some cores busy. So I then change the affinity for the next jobs to a lower core count.
