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. Besides the wide-range software and plugins support, 24/7 customer service, dedicated TD and customer support, and flexible pricing scheme which we’ve always been insisting on, recently Fox Renderfarm has initiated a program called Evergreen Program especially for new users.

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.

SIGGRAPH Asia 2020がバーチャルに！
11月17日から20日まで韓国の大邱で開催される予定だった4日間のSIGGRAPH Asia 2020ライブイベントは、完全に仮想化されます。 詳細はやがて明らかになりました。2020年7月2日 – COVID-19のパンデミックによる進行中の世界的な旅行制限により、11月に韓国の大邱での従来型のSIGGRAPH Asia 2020を開催することが不可能になりました。 そのため、SIGGRAPH Asia 2020をバーチャルイベントに移行することを決定しました。これは簡単な決定ではありませんでしたが、この現在の状況下では必要であるという共通の合意に達しました。 すべての参加者の安全は何よりも優先されなければなりません。 SIGGRAPH Asia 2020会議の議長を務めるJinny HyeJin Choo氏は、我々のコミュニティにとって初めての試みであるSIGGRAPH Asiaのバーチャルイベント化に対する関係者の理解が得られたことに感謝の意を表しています。今年のSIGGRAPH Asiaのテーマである「Driving Diversity」は、世界中の様々な分野の技術者およびクリエイター達がこのバーチャルイベントに於いて互いに刺激を与え合う機会を得たたことが新たな意味を持つようになるでしょう。 会議の議長であるJinny Chooと彼女のチームは、この一年間に成し遂げられたＣＧ関連での技術革新とその成果をSIGGRAPH Asia 2020としての強力に発信しています。今回私たちは、この仮想フォーマットによって与えられる新しいグローバルコミュニティに集うことになりますが、この革新的な手法は私たちをこれまで以上に新しい次元に連れて行ってくれるに違いないと確信しています。このバーチャルイベントの詳細は今後数週間で明らかになる予定ですが、その時点で、開催日時と技術仕様が、http：//sa2020.siggraph.orgを通じて発表されることになります。
Fight COVID-19 With CG Art
The breaking out of COVID-19 is severely impacting all industries and disrupting the daily routines of individuals globally. For fighting against the virus, governments are calling on all of us to stay at home to stay safe.During the quarantine period, the CG artists confront coronavirus in their creative ways. Fox Renderfarm collects some creative 3D rendering artworks and the inspirations behind. Let’s have a look!Artist: Valentine Panchin (Ukraine)Caption: Well, it was a pretty funny joke going around the internet about how the virus is related to the brand name, and I decided to make my own take on it. But unfortunately, I wasn't first and later I realized that my idea wasn't original. I live in Ukraine and most of the day I work from home. Only in the third week, I started learning more stuff. So I've been pretty lazy.I spend more time socializing online than ever before. Also, my work in the office has become remote and I split it into small portions during the day. So I may end up working at 10 pm. And on a regular basis, I stop at 6 pm. So I have less time to be creative.!COVID-19 - Sai Dinesh Komanduri 1!COVID-19 - Sai Dinesh Komanduri 2!COVID-19 - Sai Dinesh Komanduri 3Artist: Sai Dinesh Komanduri (India)Caption: I was working on a project and took a little break from it. Because of this reason, I thought why not make an image on how the Virus might look in my image and just went on with the instincts. The lifestyle has changed due to the lockdown, spending more time on PC than usual and sometimes it is getting frustrating just being in one place for longer periods. Toughest problem is like… Sitting in the same room for hours and not getting any ideas. Also, I'm a freelancer and I don't complain about it much.!COVID-19 Kyle YeapArtist: Kyle Yeap (Malaysia)Caption: My inspiration came from a naval mine, and I restored it with resistors. As for the COVID-19, I hope everyone can pay attention to this. It will explode at any time if people walk around.Artist: Marien Singbo (Sweden)Caption: I made it in CINEMA 4D with Redshift. My inspiration came from running out of toilet paper basically. I had to go on pilgrimage over 3 hours, through 4 stores here in London before I finally found some toilet paper. People have been hoarding even though the government & supply managers have reassured us that we will not run out of toilet paper anytime soon. My sister who has a 1-year-old baby has been unable to purchase baby wipes. It's all a bit disappointing and incredibly frustrating as it can easily be avoided.I've also been very affected, at least my career plans. I had a freelance gig canceled. And I was also going to have an animation internship at a big studio in London as the last thing in my education. But it's been canceled/postponed for now. As I will be graduating soon it's all a bit scary not knowing how the industry will recover from this and how I as a new person in the industry will be affected.Artist: Alvaro Moreira (Brazil)Caption: So the COVID art is about the Brazilian president who keeps denying that the virus can be dangerous to the population, he keeps saying stuff like "it's just the flu". The character is our president.About my work life nowadays. I have been a freelancer since 2012 and I’ve been doing home office for 8 years now, so, in this aspect, it didn’t change that much. The economy is the worst than ever in Brazil though so I can't get any jobs like I used to do here. I'm still working with some foreign studios though. Anyway, it's not that bad for me Fox Renderfarm Team: creativity, humanity and love are what make us solid and strong that COVID-19 is never able to conquer. Please stay home, stay safe and stay creative! Fox Renderfarm is staying with you! By holding our hands together, victory will come very soon!NOTE: Fox’s Got Talent campaign keeps going.
