# Working principle
# CyclesPhi working principle
---
CyclesPhi application works closely with Blender, since CyclesPhi is modified version of Blender's renderer.
CyclesPhi is capable of rendering Blender scenes while distributing rendering task on multiple cluster nodes using MPI.
CyclesPhi is capable of rendering Blender scenes while distributing the rendering task on multiple cluster nodes using MPI.
Communication between Blender and CyclesPhi is via file transfer.
Overview of working principle is depicted in picture below.

# Building and running CyclesPhi v2.8
# Compatibility
---
Although CyclesPhi is compatible only with modified version of Blender 2.8, scenes from standard Blender 2.8 are of course supported.
Modification of Blender is necessery to sufficiently support MIC architecture on cluster.
Build of modified Blender version is part of CyclesPhi building procedure.
