Documentation here: https://github.com/kinoraw/kinoraw_tools/blob/master/README.md
The development version of the addon is: https://github.com/kinoraw/kinoraw_tools
it is mainly bash stuff, only tested in linux yet. It uses zenity to show info...
'Generate' operator divides the timeline in n pieces, being n the number of available cpu kernels, and create a bash script to launch as many background blenders as cpu threads.
Only works when exporting to frame sequences.
Be sure to save your project and setup your output location before press 'launch render'
in latests versions of blender VSE render uses multithread, so this script is not so necesary, but still it can improve your render times if you need to export to frames.
