What is cloud rendering?Cloud rendering is calculated similarly to general cloud computing, and it is a rendering method based on the render farm. More specifically, it is a process where users upload assets to the cloud server to do the computation/rendering, and then the cloud server sends the results back to the users. It includes offline rendering (render farm), real-time rendering, and other computations made by the servers in the cloud. How does cloud rendering work?The background script of the cloud rendering service platform will complete the background server environment configuration according to the files, triggers instructions, and user parameter settings. Then, the dispatcher dispatches a server that meets the requirements to compute/render the specified task. Finally, the server will notify the user of the render status when the computation is complete. If you use the Fox Renderfarm desktop client, generated assets will download automatically, and if you are a web client user, you need to download them manually.!What-is-cloud-rendering How much time will I save with a cloud rendering serviceDifferent projects’ computing times vary considerably. Cloud rendering services provide powerful computing capabilities. Theoretically, the more render nodes are assigned, the shorter the computing time is. For example, distributed rendering provided by Fox Renderfarm can compute a render job with multiple servers together, which can save time drastically. The render job that takes one month to render locally can even be completed in 15 minutes in Fox Renderfarm. The approximate time saved can be calculated in the cost estimator.Here are some projects that also use a cloud rendering services: How to use a cloud rendering service?Users can package their own customized files, upload the packaged files to the cloud rendering server through the cloud rendering client, make full use of the computer hardware resources in the cluster network, and calculate the complex 3D scene through a large number of computer calculations to generate a preview image or the final animated image for visual effect adjustment or post-production synthesis.Better rendering hardware, lower rendering costs and easier to use. These are the points where cloud rendering has advantages over traditional rendering. why do I need to use a cloud rendering service?For example, the producer made an interior rendering. If the rendering is based on the 3600X2500 size, a general computer will take at least 3 to 6 hours, but if you use a cloud rendering service, you only need to upload the file to the client, rendering time can less than 1 hour. Cloud rendering is several times faster than house render farm. And during the rendering, it does not take up the producer's machine. And for the producer, you don't need to always be in front of the computer, you can view the rendering results anytime, anywhere.Let's take the Maya web submission process as an example, only 4 steps in Fox Renderfarm: submit > analyze > render > download,1.Click the "Submit" button on the left, select the software for submission> set a project path (Note: select a project path to map the local Maya project path)> select the document for rendering, after that, click "Next".!What-is-cloud-rendering2.Add software configuration after submitting the job (Note: selection of the rendering system), click "Go Analysis" and wait patiently for the analysis to be completed.!What-is-cloud-rendering3.Click the job with "Analysis Done", set render parameters and then submit it for rendering (Note: the rendering actually starts only at this job)!What-is-cloud-rendering4.On the rendering page, click the job > export the file > download.!What-is-cloud-renderingThe cloud rendering platform can dynamically adjust the scale of the cloud rendering platform. When the rendering requirements reach the peak warning, the dynamic adjustment automatically expands more computing resources, all the adjustment are automated, and the software running environment and fault tolerance rate is extremely high. Can meet the rendering needs of a variety of software.
