    Hy there,

    Is there a way, to protect for example a Python Generator?

    I did write some plugins in python, as I often need functionality, which I like to have also on a render farm. There I can't use plugins, so I often just create a python node, having the same functionality.

    I would like to sell/give out those too, but there is currently no way of protecting the code. Is that a feature that you could build in? It is not about a key or serial or the like, just a way of protecting the source code from tampering and view.

    It would open a new "channel" for plugins. Especially for farm-proof things ;)

    Thank you,
    André

    I was wondering about that too. The coffee node still has the useful 'Protect...' button and it doesn't make any sense, that we don't have this in the Python node.
    When I'm working on site I don't want to give away all my code and, like you said, with a plugin the project might not render on a renderfarm.
