ResPower Render Farm Now Supports Blender 2.46


Since Blender 2.46 has been released, ResPower has now added support for it.

If you are looking to speed up your rendering time or in a crunch to complete a project, check out ResPower. They offer a very reasonable Blender rate schedule,  good for 30 days.

    Very nice...It does seem like kind of late for them to be just updating to 2.46 support after its been out for, what, 3 months? Especially considering the latest dev builds are just a compiler away...

  2. ResPower is, to me, a very expensive proposition. If I needed extra power, I might use RenderRocket instead. Also, don't forget that there are dedicated Blender renderfarms out on the web such as BURP.

  3. Dramaking,

    Does RenderRocket support Blender? I didn't see it on their website. As to BURP, there are way too many variables to deal with. I suppose if you had enough time on your hands to manage it, it would work, but you are always at the mercy of how many computers are on line. On their cheapest plan at Respower, for $20.00 U.S. you get one month of unlimited rendering. I'm not doing large scale movies and this price has always worked well for me.

  4. for me respower is a fantastic tool... with a small budget you can really manage quite big projects with ease... One day I got in real trouble because I had a sharp deadline and saw I wouldn't finish in time, then I tried it with the $20 plan, it saved my head from being cut by rendering my whole 3min. anim in about 8 hours, and now I use it all the time...

  5. BURP is still Alpha and your .blend will be spread on each BURP-Client.
    So it's useless for customer-projects.
    I will give ResPower a try but luckily i hadn't met sharp deadlines yet..

  6. I haven't needed it until now, but be sure that I will use ResPower is I have a big project and a short deadline !

    They are very cheap and allow a huge power. Their offers for Blender users is really a present !

  8. Does anyone know how render farms handle fluid sim files?

    I have about 1 gig of BOBJ files that I'm trying to render on my puny system. Is it possible for render farms like ResPower to render them??
    I imagine that you send them your .blend?

  9. DramaKing: $20 is expensive? Sorry, urm, but here, animated 3D projects, especially ones which require a renderfarm, *start* at $2000 *minimum*. I can really live with spending 1% of a project budget on rendering if it saves me a week of lost time and unwanted room heating...
