The cloud rendering service that we offer is our biggest strength. Render farms are usually a structure built on interconnected PCs, which share their memory and processing capabilities to efficiently process CGI rendering. Nodes that are utilized; are advanced in nature; and thus, without too much manual input and manipulation, brilliant computer generated graphics and imagery can be created. Render farms are also highly efficient and that is why, at CG Studios, we use them to examine graphic and special effects. Traditional render farms are great, but they do not come without their limitations. Space constraints, high maintenance requirements, and expenses associated with these farms could be a huge problem for smaller companies. Cloud rendering ensures that the performance of the traditional render farms are amalgamated with lesser costs and user friendly system in order to provide smaller companies with the best rendering option.
