This page provides information on installing the Chaos Cloud Client Аpplication.

 

Overview


Chaos Cloud requires the installation of Chaos Cloud Client Аpplication. The app is the connection between your scene and Chaos Cloud, and it allows you to submit scenes to the cloud. The diagram on the right explains the workflow of exporting a scene to Chaos Cloud.

After the installation of Chaos Cloud Client Application, you can export *.vrscene files manually or through any of the host apps. If it is started from a 3D design application, it will automatically load the scene you are working on. For a full list of the apps that support Chaos Cloud and how to run a render job on Chaos Cloud from the corresponding host app, see Submittal and Download. If you want to start the *.vrscene file manually, you have to find that exported file and submit it by right-clicking on it and choosing Upload to Chaos Cloud. For more information, see Submitting Render Jobs Through the Chaos Cloud Standalone Application. 

The Client App allows you to manаgе the upload before submitting it to the cloud. You can change the job name, choose the project, the aspect ratio, etc. Once in the cloud, you are able to monitor the progress of your currently submitted jobs, queue up subsequent jobs, as well as change job settings and resubmit jobs without even opening a scene.

This guide is to serve as a reference for the installation of the app.

 

If you experience any problems, contact the Chaos Group Support team.
