I hope your re render works out. Just the words re render makes my hair stand on end. I am very interested to hear of the results.
This time it rendered without jitter.
While rendering the project, 3 of my slaves became hung up on the frames they were doing, meaning they were sitting on the frame at different percentages. They did not all become hung up at the same time.
When I had rendered this same project ealier, the slaves (not the same ones as hung up the most recent render) had become hung up and I killed the render on them, re-booted the machines, re-started NR.
This last render, I just took those offending slaves off without re-starting them.
I typically like more data before I develope an opinion, but it seems there is a relationship between restarting a slave and jitter.
The only other thing that was different is I did not use a really slow slave machine in the render.
While the slaves were "hung-up" the render dialog box on each machine said they were rendering patches.
If anyone can comment on this issue I would appreciate it very much.
