When I was trying the beta versions of A:M 16 I worked with Steffen to make sure that NetRender would work on a Mac. We finally solved all the issues. I haven't tried NetRender since, untill today. Now I find it will not launch - bounces once in the Dock and that is it.
What has changed? Well I now have loaded the 19 January version of A:M 16. I also renewed my license - but I had to do it under version 15. I then copied the license over like we did with the beta versions. But is the license now an issue?
I have been using version 15 because of several acknowledged constraint issues with the Mac 16 version. But I don't see why that should have any effect.
I would think that NetRender would work under these conditions, just as it did in December 2010.

All I can say is I doubt the license would be an issue unless it's explicitly giving a message that the license is a problem. Beyond that I don't know much about NetRender.

Here is what the Console log says:
2/27/11 11:17:31 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502 ([0x0-0x7db7db].Netrender) posix_spawn("/Applications/Animation Master 16.0/Netrender.app/Contents/MacOS/applet", ...): Permission denied
2/27/11 11:17:31 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502 ([0x0-0x7db7db].Netrender) Exited with exit code: 1
Now this is very strange because to have A:M work on a Mac, you have to change the permissions on the folder to Everyone Read & Write. AND I repair permission weekly (may be an overkill.) I checked permission on the unix exec inside the package and it reads everyone Read & write.
I hope that Yoda64 will see this thread and look into the issue.

Just to make sure I understand you, you specifically checked the permissions on "Netrender.app"?

Yes I did. Here is a screen shotClick to view attachment

Is there an "execute" option available? I imagine netrender.app is not a file you need to read from or write to, you just need to be able to execute it. But I'm not really a programmer, and I don't know much about Macs.

It gets real funky HomeSlice, NetRender on the Mac is an AppleScript and if I open the script in AppleScript Editor and execute if from there NetRender does its thing. But in its Application form, nothing.

You can simply build Your own netrender application from inside the Apple Script editor.
Use "Save as" and change the type to "Application"Click to view attachment

Thank you Yoda64, that worked just fine.
