Distributed rendering from a free (non-camera) view can lead to incorrect results. If you see incorrectly overlapped objects, render from a camera view.

This message warns about possible errors that may be caused when using distributed rendering with free (non-camera) view. Since 3ds Max command line rendering, which DR takes advantage of, has occasionally problems of correctly restoring view position, it is always suggested to use distributed rendering with Camera view.
