Last Chance for Submission into Powua Animation Contest


Recently reported, the Powua renderfarm is offering rendering time on their servers as prizes for their animation contest.

Marco, from Powua, writes:

We had only 3 users submitting a frame for this contest, so [we are extending the deadline until the 20th of April]. Otherwise, we will choose the prizes between those three entries.

If you have anything (or several things) that you would like to have rendered on a renderfarm, don't miss the opportunity of this deadline extension. Simply email an exemplary frame from one of your animations to beta at powua dot com. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece, so go for it!

  1. Anyone else surprised at the poor response? only 3. In my experience people are normally gagging for cycles. There is also the on flowing "problem" of if they get a poor response this time around, will they be inclusive to the blender community at large in future. :S

  2. Well, I'm one of those three yay. I'm surprised there were only three entries though. Anyway good luck to others who have entered, and I guess we'll see who wins shortly.


  3. This might be blenders own doing LOL

    The new AAO is so fast that noone needs a supercomputer anymore :)
    i animated a 500 frame clip on my laptop last night and using the the new AAO it took 20 secounds a frame, on the standard AO i was looking a 5mins a frame.

    I think the other problem is that to justife using a renderfarm you need a decent animation of substance, not saying that no has a decent animation idea im saying that everyone works to the restrictions and now that powua has lifted the ristriction of render times it will take time for new projects to get off the ground that can take full advantage of this. That said three entrys to me sounds good if they are goona be half as good as say BBB or ED so its all in context of what they have recived.

  4. Hi All,
    the contest is ending in few hours.
    Thanks to all that has submitted their stills (will be a difficult decision....).
    We will announce winners tomorrow (21st) at 12pm GMT+1.

    Feel free to submit any work also today until 12pm GMT+1 (Italy, where we are located).
