Two Important Things Zync Render Users Need to Know
We are sorry that Zync Render has to officially shut down on June 1, 2021, the cloud rendering services provided by Google Cloud. Since the chaos that has a huge impact on the 3D industry worldwide caused by the pandemic, Fox Renderfarm strongly believes that every contributor in the industry matters, and we never see other cloud render farms as competitors but teammates to make this industry robust and vigorous. What Should Zync Render users do to avoid losses as much as possible and continue their cloud rendering easily after the change? Here are 2 pieces of advice. 1. Be aware of 2 special dates Zync has stopped accepting new users and halted new development since June 21, 2020, which means the software and plugins support and maintenance provided by the render farm cannot be up to date. Below are software versions supported by Zync Render. If you cannot find the versions of your software and plugins, we recommend you could find an alternative choice, and Fox Renderfarm is deeply committed to supporting CG Artists and making cloud rendering accessible to everyone around the world. We support a huge number of main 3D software and renderers. 3ds Max !v-ray for 3ds max render farm Arnold Standalone!Arnold Standalone Cinema 4D!cinema 4d render farm Houdini!arnold for houdini render farm Maya!v-ray for maya render farm Nuke!nuke render farm V-Ray Standalone!V-Ray StandaloneThe official shutdown date is on June 1, 2021. Before that, you’d better log in to your Zync Render account to check your projects left and do the backup just in case of asset losses. 2. Choose Zync Render AlternativesWe sincerely advise you to try Fox Renderfarm.

Fox Renderfarm Has Completed The Annual TPN Assessment Process For 2021!
As your TPN-Accredited cloud render farm, Fox Renderfarm has always been committed to providing fast and secure render farm services for customers and we have completed the annual Trusted Partner Network assessment process for 2021!!Fox Renderfarm has completed the annual TPN assessment process for 2021!What is TPN?Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is a joint venture between two major entertainment industry giants, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), the worldwide leaders in third-party entertainment industry assessments. MPAA is a non-profit American trade association with the goal of promoting effective copyright protection, reducing piracy, and expanding market access. While, CDSA, is the international content protection association that protect entertainment media throughout the supply chain, both pre and post release. As one of the most authoritative film and TV content protection corporation, TPN assessment is well acknowledged by conglomerates like Walt Disney Studios, Universal City Studios, Warner Bros., Netflix Studios and so forth. !Fox Renderfarm, Your TPN Accredited Cloud Render Farm !Fox Renderfarm, Your TPN Accredited Cloud Render Farm Why do we need TPN?Content and data security have always been a global concern in the movie and TV industry, especially after a serial high-profile pre-release leaks in 2017. Those included the theft and release of “Orange Is the New Black” season 5 episodes from an audio post-production firm and an episode from “Game of Thrones” season 7 that was traced to employees at a data-management vendor working with 21st Century Fox’s Star India. The hacking nightmare continued after Netflix refused to pay the requested ransom. The hacker group The Dark Overlord uploaded much of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 5 online through illegal file-sharing service and kept posting arrogant and even scolding messages online. Huge damage was caused to Hollywood’s major production studios and to the health of the whole industry.Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is a new, global, industry-wide film and television content protection initiative. The TPN program helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows prior to their intended release and seeks to raise security awareness, preparedness, and capabilities within the industry. It functions as a global clearinghouse that will set security standards for entertainment production and distribution companies. Partners who pass an independent assessment conforming to those industry best practices will be listed as “trusted partners” in the TPN directory. “Creating the films and television shows enjoyed by audiences around the world increasingly requires a network of specialized vendors and technicians,” MPAA chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin said in a statement. “That’s why maintaining high security standards for all third-party operations — from script to screen — is such an important part of preventing the theft of creative works and ultimately protects jobs and the health of our vibrant creative economy.”How does TPN work?The TPN assessment process is highly rigorous with detailed security requirements on the physical security, asset management, content life-cycle, enterprise security, risk assessment, vulnerability management, security operations and incident response, policy & procedures, human resources processes, and most importantly, infrastructure. Moreover, the assessed Vendors are required to do the annual re-assessment every year to continuously improve the security system to better meet the TPN assessment standards. The assessment reports are shared within the TPN platform and can also be shared with existing and potential customers at the vendor’s discretion.Fox Renderfarm x TPNWith the relentless efforts and commitment to build a more secure cloud render farm that better protect the privacy of our beloved customers, Fox Renderfarm has successfully completed MPAA’s Content Security Best Practices and officially become a TPN Trusted Partner!Fox Renderfarm’s mission is to be the best cloud render farm with powerful render capacity, thoughtful customer service, secure data protection and flexible pricing scheme.As a TPN-accredited Partner, Fox Renderfarm will persist its steps to enhance the cloud rendering solutions to be more customer-friendly and also be one of the safest.
