ResPower Announces Split/Frame Rendering


ResPowerResPower have updated their Blender support with a great new feature: Split/Frame rendering. Now you can also use the power of their renderfarm to quickly render those insanely complex stills of yours, and not only animations.

"Until now, ResPower's Blender 3D support has been geared towards accelerating animated renders only. Now, users can submit single frames and distribute them across up to 100 computers." says Early Ehlinger, ResPower's president. "With this new option, Blender users can render single images as frequently as they would like and see significant acceleration of those renders."

In conjunction with this new support, ResPower is putting into public beta its automatic image reassembly support. Using the "Stitch" command from ResPower's Job Status page, users can automatically reassemble their Split/Frame renders. "This part has really been the missing link in ResPower's Split/Frame service in the past. Now that this feature is in Beta, Split/Frame rendering becomes that much more attractive, since you no longer have to put everything together in Photoshop."

The article does not mention if the new features support Yafray as well. But with some luck, Early might be around to comment on that ;-)

Edit: Early has already posted a comment below; Yafray split frame rendering is supported as well. Cool.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. It looks like when you run through their cost guestimator that they have the option for you to select YAFRAY under the render engine. Seems like a good hint that they support it.

  2. They have supported Yafray for animations for a while now, but I was wondering if the new split frame renderer would also support yafray. It would be useful, as Yafray scenes can typically take a *long* time to render..

  3. Thanks again for commenting on our site and news releases. It's always greatly appreciated.

    So, on to the question on everybody's lips: "Does Split/Frame work with Yafray?" ANSWER: Yes!
