I hope this is the right place to ask my question.
I am searching for some information regarding the communicating with the Blender renderer or Blender in general from other software or scripts.
I am not sure what possibilities I have and what is the best way is to remote control Blender from the outside to let Blender for example manage render tasks.
I discovered so far that I have the following possibilities to communicate with Blender:
Via commandline arguments. (seems very restricted)
Via Python scripts which can be loaded when starting Blender over the command prompt.
Is there more?
I basically want to start understanding the whole render queue / renderfarm thing. So that I maybe can commit code to Sheep-it, Flamenco or Blender for example in the future.
I am also searching for general theories about how to build a render farm infrastructure. What approaches are existing? What solutions are used for the Blender movies.
Maybe someone can point me to good resources about this. I had no real success so far finding good info.
I hope my questions are not to naive.
