Here's an opportunity to win up to one full week of free rendering on the Powua renderfarm!
- Animation made on Blender using internal render or Yafray.
- Send to beta at powua dot com one still image of the animation in Jpeg or Tiff format between the 14-18 of April. On the 21 of April we will announce the results and send free codes to the winners!
- You can win one week, three days or 1 day of free rendering on a 16-processor renderfarm (1 powua node composed of 8 dual processor dual core for a total of 32 cores).
So basically there are 3 prizes for 3 possible winners.
Woo...First Post! Yay!
Anyway... I think I just might enter this. For me personally there is no better prize then time on a render farm.
one of these days i may just enter a contest or 2
I would need something massive to render to take much advantage of the renderfarm's capabilities. So, even though it's an animation contest, we send a still image of the animation instead of the link to the video? How can they tell whether it's a good animation or not without a video? Maybe they just want the Jpeg/TIFF so they can have a thumbnail besides the video.
We will Try! :D
9 days is a very limited timeframe even for creating a still...
I think the idea is to submit a still from an existing animation (or from a WIP) that you would like to have rendered at a much higher resolution than would be practical on the average computer.
Or, maybe someone could create one heck of a cloth, fluid, or particles animation.
They probably only want to see a still image instead of the entire animation due to email attachment limitations and the time it would take to review/judge several animations. So, anyone submitting an entry should pick the best "money shot" from their animation that demonstrates why it would be a good candidate for needing a renderfarm.
Time on a render farm? That's one of the coolest prizes in history... I wannit... :-D
wohoo ! im the number 8 to post ! XD
If you break it down, with an average of 3 minutes per frame. Thats 20 frames an hour per cpu, so 480 frames over a 24 hour block. Running that across 16 processors thats a grand total of 7680 frames. At 25 fps thats 307.2 seconds of footage or about 5 minutes.
Assuming they are all beauty passes. :)
I rendered this on POWUA: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=120360 They were very helpful in getting me set up. :D
Cool competition... I think I'll give it a go.
