Frames per chunck

Greetings,

We are still very pleased with RenderPal, however I do have a question that has been running on my mind for some time :
Are there any advantages to set more than one frame per chunck in a job, instead of 5 or 10? In fact, what is the point of having chunks?

Thanks in advance!
Alexis.

A chunk represents a kind of unit that will be rendered; for each chunk, the renderer has to be launched, files have to be loaded etc. So having larger chunks -- and thus less chunks per job -- results in less renderer launches, and the total loading time will be smaller. And without chunks, how could a single job be rendered on multiple machines?

Oh thanks! That makes sense.
