Blender render node prefab.

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of network rendering and often running one slave on my workstation as well. I can’t count the number of times I’ve accidentally killed the slave on my workstation because the interfaces all look almost the same. So I’ve taken the time to configure a simple UI layout specifically for slave nodes when network rendering. I’ve left the info pane at the top for easy viewing of the render bar, immediately below is a sliver of the image viewer with just enough space to see the info text that appears at the top (This displays connection status to master, current scene etc). Then on the bottom is the primary node settings. The only configuration needed is the IP address of the computer running the master node. I know its not much, but I hope some people find this helpful!
