More importantly, the reliable and quality rendering also guarantees the quality of this film."
Katapix Media:Carlos Duque
"One of our biggest concerns was render time, since we are a small company and we knew this was going to be super render intensive, so we looked for a reliable render service, tried a bunch, and ended up picking Fox Renderfarm, because their price/benefit are more important, their staff was there for us 24/7 not via email or forums, we actually had direct contact with our account manager and a group of TD’s willing to help us regardless of the hour. It was an overall great experience to work with them and we still use Fox Renderfarm as our sole render solution."
The director Bobby bala

Their customer service was excellent and their render system was very reliable and user friendly.

"There are also rendering machines in the company. Before the scene is rendered, the technicians will avoid the repeated submission and rendering invalidation by splitting and assembling the rendering task. When the internal can't meet a large number of rendering requirements, some parts of the rendering task will be submitted to Fox Renderfarm, maximizing the use of rendering resources to ensure completion in the cycle.

“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” Rendered With Fox Renderfarm
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal”, produced by Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. has been on screen in Malaysia on 21st March 2019. This film was rendered by Fox Renderfarm.
This is a 100-minute feature film of adventure, family and fantasy genre, with a very interesting story. The details of the movie are as follows.
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” is Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd.’s third feature film.
Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. was established in December 2005 to spearhead Malaysia’s animation industry and specialize in producing high-quality 3D animation and IP production.
Les’ Copaque Production has spent five years producing their second full-length 3D animated movie “Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal”.
Before this feature film, “Upin & Ipin” is the longest-running Malaysian animated series and the most popular IP in South Asia with over 12 million audience on Facebook. The series is currently on its 13th season in production.
This new adventure film tells of the adorable twin brothers Upin and Ipin together with their friends Ehsan, Fizi, Mail, Jarjit, Mei Mei, and Susanti, and their quest to save a fantastical kingdom of Inderaloka from the evil Raja Bersiong. It all begins when Upin, Ipin, and their friends stumble upon a mystical kris that leads them straight into the kingdom. While trying to find their way back home, they are suddenly burdened with the task of restoring the kingdom back to its former glory. With help from Mat Jenin and Belalang, Upin, Ipin and their friends must overcome a series of challenging obstacles in this action-packed, magical and humorous adventure film produced by Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd.
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” is the most expensive movie in Malaysia, costing an estimate of 20 million ringgit (around US$4.92 million). The movie is 100 minutes in duration and took a production team of 140, including 12 lighting and rendering artists, and 5 years to complete.
Over 50 different species of animals were created. It is also the first time Les’ Copaque Production has had hair groomed for over 70 rigged characters. There were a lot of technical challenges that the production team has to overcome. For example, one dancing shot has a crowd of 120 characters at once, with some heavy shots that have more than 180 rendered layers, etc.
During 5-year long production, the team has had three major upgrades in regards to their hardware and software in order to deliver the complexity of the film. The longest shot in this film has 722 frames and it took 100 rendering nodes and 2 months.
As a leading service provider, Fox Renderfarm’s reliable and high-efficient service helps Les’ Copaque Production in its support of the 3D feature film “Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal”.
The technical team of Les’ Copaque Production greatly praises the high-quality rendering service. They said: “We are very satisfied with Fox Renderfarm’s 24/7 real-time technical support, reliable download and upload speed, the user friendly webpage interface, and very simple desktop client app for our alternative option. For example, we have some frames that took 3 days to render locally, and after we submitted to Fox Renderfarm’s platform, it was completed in 2 hours, which greatly saved our time and budget. More importantly, the reliable and quality rendering also guarantees the quality of this film.”
“We use this mentality to the way we do our work, in giving our best in creating our own Intellectual Property (IP) with the highest quality possible.” This is the Mission of Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd.
Personally, I really like this mission statement. We look forward to the release of “Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” in China and more countries in the world. It is our hope that the “Upin & Ipin” series will bring joy to more and more people, they will understand and enjoy the culture of Malaysia, and we expect nothing less than excellent work coming from Les' Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. in the future.
Involving the difference between offline and instant rendering
Involving the difference between offline and instant/ real time rendering.
The rendering of animated movies is very inspecting the hardware level. Generally, it is cost a long time in the industrial-grade cluster workstations, always several hours to several weeks. Then, the final works to the audience is ok. The quality of an animated movies is high. There are a lot of 2K and 4K works. It is not a problem to show on IMAX. It is depend on hardware devices and the long time rendering.
The rendering of the video game is different. When the player is sitting next to the game, it must complete one frame in tens of milliseconds. Game rendering, including mobile and PC games, the screen is no bigger than the screen of the theater, so the requirements are much lower, generally will not exceed the mainstream TV level, so we describe a high-definition game will often admire "Smell the aroma of the graphics card", mobile games and PC games are the same, playing games is actually playing a graphics processing unit (GPU).
The difference of engine Animated movies rendering pursues reality, using global light source, real-time calculation of particle effects and fluid effects.
Video game rendering generally uses pre-optimized models and material compression techniques, simple local light sources. However, the excellent story video game is another thing, it needs to be downloaded separately, just like watching in the video.
The above is the difference between animated movies rendering and video games rendering. Let’s talk about the difficulty of film and television rendering.
Usually 2K movies use an rendering time of about one hour per frame, while Hollywood mainstream movies have resolutions of 2K, 4K, 6K, and 8K, and each quality time will increase by four times. If the scene involves complex calculations such as particles and fluids, a frame may take more than 10 hours of rendering time. The huge cluster of solves this problem well. Its mode is similar to that of conventional cloud computing, where 3D programs are rendered in remote servers, and user terminals access resources through high-speed internet access via the web or clients. The instruction is sent from the user terminal, and the server executes the corresponding rendering task according to the instruction (allocating multi-node multi-frame simultaneous rendering, which will greatly shorten the rendering period), and the rendering result picture is transmitted back to the user terminal for display. The can be understood as a high-performance cloud computing cluster system (thousands to tens of thousands of high-performance rendering nodes).
The Shipment Win Best VFX
Berlin Science-fiction film Festival is the first international festival of Science-fiction Film in Germany. It has shown about 200 independent films from over 30 countries in the past 2 years.The 2018 Berlin Science-fiction Film festival vote has come to end of a phase, but much professional staff has anticipated the winner of the Berlin Science-fiction film. For the VFX and animation industry, the most concerned prize is the Best Visual Effects. Today let us share the film which has won the Best Visual Effects---The Shipment.The Shipment has also been selected to Tribeca film festival which is ranked one of the top 10 film festivals in the world as well recently in New York. It is really proud to say that the render of this film is supported by Fox Renderfarm. Let us watch this film together.Name: The ShipmentCountry: CanadaLanguage: EnglishRelease Date: 21 October 2018 (Australia)Also Known As: CargoFilming Locations: Vancouver, British Columbia, CanadaThe film tells the story about a widowed cargo hauler Aedin Katar and his young daughter Zohra.Aedin Katar is an ex-slave trader struggles to live a reformed life as a lowly interplanetary cargo hauler.

Unable to afford the repairs to their ship, Stranded and broke, he faces his dark past and difficult ethical choices in a desperate attempt to provide a better life for his daughter.Being a sci-fi film, The Shipment needs a tremendous amount of VFX and rendering. The film is entirely self financed by the director Bobby Bala, Who is also the CEO at Flying Car Productions, and it is over budget. Fox Renderfarm has provided rendering power with a significantly discounted rate for this film which is over 40,000 frames. Bobby mentioned in the interview that "Fox Renderfarm was critical to the success and completion of our film The Shipment. Their customer service was excellent and their cloud rendering system was very reliable and user friendly. After many unsuccessful experiences with other cloud rendering services, we were grateful to find Fox which surpassed our expectations. Without their affordable rendering options, we would not have been able to complete our independent sci-fi film which has recently been chosen as an official selection at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York."Here we also have an interview with Katapix Media which teamed up with Post-VFX to tackle the bulk of the Post production, Tasked with more than 390 shots for this film. Carlos Duque who is the Co-founder of Katapix Media tells us it was a Learning experience working on this project. They had short notice to put together a team and train some of the crew so they could be on par with the quality requirement, Bobby definitely has an eye for detail so they needed to beat his expectations.Carlos also introduces some challenges of the production:Our company (Katapix) is based in Medellin (Colombia), we’ve been in the industry for more than 15 years doing CG and VFX for tv and advertising, and started Katapix 5 years ago with a goal in mind, Feature films, The Shipment brings us closer to that goal, so this project was a welcome challenge. As every project it had its ups and downs but nevertheless was super fun and now that we see the results and all the selections and awards it’s getting, you realize it was all worth it!!One of our biggest concerns was rendering times, since we are a small company and we knew this was going to be super render intensive, so we looked for a reliable cloud rendering service, tried a bunch, and ended up picking Fox Renderfarm over the render farm, because their price/benefit are more important, their staff was there for us 24/7 not via email or forums, we actually had direct contact with our account manager and a group of TD’s willing to help us regardless of the hour. It was an overall great experience to work with them and we still use Fox Renderfarm as our sole render solution.The Shipment has brought home the award for Best Visual FX from Berlin Sci-Fi Film Festival and thrilled to be a Tribeca 2019 Official Selection!

At the same time, we have thousands of rendering nodes, users can upload and render in real-time. This is also the advantage that we are different from others, and one of the reasons why many users like to use us.We know that many enterprises encounter many headaches in the transmission of large files, such as video, the transmission speed is too slow, and the file transmission process is afraid of interception, loss and other accidents. Also, it is cost a lot of time when the file transfer process be interrupted, that means you should transfer again.In response to the above problems, we have developed a large file transfer tool for users to choose, using a second to increase the transmission speed by 100 times. Moreover, our own render farm also has the application of this technology, which ensures that users can quickly complete the uploading of the work to be rendered and download, which greatly saves time.

The story tells us a small person who has been secretly imprisoned since he was eight years old. He is not willing to be treated as a substitute, and after hardships, he tries to find a free humanity.On 6th September, 2018, the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival and officially released in mainland China on 30th September of the same year. In October, the film was nominated for the No. 55 Taiwan Film Golden Horse Award for best feature film, best director, best actor, best actress and other 12 nominations. On 17th November, director Zhang Yimou won the Best Director Award in one fell swoop.Working for film 40 years, Zhang Yimou has never stopped exploring and innovating art, even though he is 68 years old. This time, washing the lead, fading the color, and integrating the thinking of human nature into the film is very different from the past. It was praised as "the most amazing movie by Zhang Yimou so far.""Shadow" strives to achieve the ultimate martial arts aesthetics of the East, without the gorgeous color of "Hero", without the human tactics of "Curse of the Golden Flower", and the ancient shackles of "Great Wall". No longer pursues grand and gorgeous, black and white ash as the theme color, ink-brush painting as the main picture style, "Qin, Se, Xiao" three national musical instruments created a "Chinese painting" image system with Chinese traditional aesthetics. The combination of yin and yang, soft and soft, combined with the virtual and the real, shows the balance of beauty.In addition to the excellent ink-brush painting, the bursting of the fighting scenes in the film is also the most extreme in Zhang Yimou's movies. Some of the fierce battle scenes even make the audience seem to really feel the pain of the characters in the film, such as bamboo inserted in the back, the big knife sees See the leg bones, the dagger straight into the neck and other scenes. As the special effects producer of "Shadow", PIXOMONDO made great efforts and constantly modified and communicated in the production process to achieve the final result. Fox Renderfarm, which provides cloud rendering support for “Shadow”, also provides powerful technical support for the perfect visual rendering of the film.Hoping that Zhang Yimou will bring more different works to the audience!
