What is an online render farm?
What is an online render farm? First, let's learn about what is a renderfarm? In fact, renderfarm should be called Cluster Computing. It has many advantages in rendering. A Cluster Computing has built with amounts of servers, among of them, a server also as a render node. With Cluster Computing, a complex model can be quickly rendered, and the time can be compared to local computer rendering, which can be shortened to 1/8, 1/10.
How does renderfarm work?
The main working principle of renderfarm is to use a server as the render master to manage and allocate the same work tasks to multiple render nodes via Ethernet. When a rendering task is transferred to the render master via Ethernet and from a PC with the renderfarm software installed, multiple render nodes connected to it will process the rendering command in parallel. After the operation is completed, the rendered still picture sequence or dynamic video is stored to Ethernet. Then download it to the user's local computer via Ethernet, which is actually the online render farm.
What role does online render farm play in the production of the CG industry?
At present, the proportion of visual effects films in the film industry is increasing, especially for 3D animated films, which are inseparable from the render farm in the post-production. Moreover, in the production files of those movies, it is not just one or two frames, and a movie rendering takes at least a few weeks or even longer. Therefore, those 3D animation and visual effects studios usually rent commercial render farms for rendering to ensure the progress of the work.
What are the advantages of using an online render farm?
The advantages of using an online render farm are,
- The general computer clusters are relatively large in scale.
There are more than one rendering server, like Fox Renderfarm, there are thousands of machines available, massive rendering nodes, and high availability, no waiting necessary.
- Supporting multiple 3d software, renderers and plug-ins
Because render farms typically rely on its management software, rendering cluster management software typically supports mainstream 3d software, renderers and plug-ins.
Rendering by render farm, you can uploading, rendering and downloading whenever you want. If you encounter any problems in the process, a professional technical director will help you to solve the problems. Using a render farm is saving a lot of time for the VFX studio/ company. Moreover, it also saves a large part of the manpower, material resources and budget for the studio and the company. As the cheapest online render farm in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm's service and quality have been recognized by many studios, companies and 3d artists, truly providing quality service and reasonable prices.
