While after/during dog walk I recall there is renderfarm + background
render feature, so may be having some commonly-accessible place (for all
users) still might be good idea.?

Anyway, path itself easy to change (even in code if you want)

in cinelerra/preferences.C

// Default brender asset
<------>brender_asset = new Asset;
<------>brender_asset->audio_data = 0;
<------>brender_asset->video_data = 1;
<------>sprintf(brender_asset->path, "/tmp/brender");
<------>brender_asset->format = FILE_JPEG_LIST;
<------>brender_asset->jpeg_quality = 80;

but default socket patch also lives there, I redefined it for termux, but
for generic unix/Linux distro .... may be somewhere in /var ?

Not sure if having two places to control for permissions better than one
