This means you can run any job with GreenButton and it will cost you no more than $10 dollars.


  1. Testing on a movie with 800 pictures in Jpeg at 1280x1024. A travel in space with particles. Very fast (4 mn), but same picture on all pictures !!! I don't understand my error. Ok in blender when I render "Anim". And you ?

  2. @Spencer It's stills and animations. For each project submitted, the price is $10.

    @geoland57 You must be doing something wrong. I had some animations this weekend with over 2000 frames rendering just fine. It took a couple of hours for it to render, but it worked just fine. And it only cost $10. Just remember when you submit your file to make sure the whole project is packaged up. It took my project 15mins to send to them because of the size of it.

    They don't have much a control panel, but their service works well and they are pretty good about responding to tech support calls. If you have something to render and can't have your machine tied up for days, thiers is definitely a service to try.

  3. Too bad, I renders the host image 50 seconds. and when sent to this service (Green Button). I was cleared of 32 cents, while 10 processors were employed. That leaves 32 minutes / 10 processors = 3.2 min. There were no errors, identical to the figure turned out. My Intel Q8300 at 38.4 times faster?
    (32 min 60 sec * / min) / 50 seconds on my computer.
    and specially exhibited 1 to 1 frame. that there was no 250 ))

  4. Sorry, I hate cloud computing!
    Sending all my data arround the world not knowing where it is and who has it is not acceptable!!

  5. I did some heavy tests with greenbutton over the last weeks with big files (~120Mb compressed), with lots of large textures, and while it renders very fast, it starts failing a lot when renderign big scenes (many frames dropped). The greenbutton people is very helpful and really tries to solve issues, but it looks like there is a memory limitation of their system. They say they are about to upgrade, though.

    So I guess it is at the moment more for small scenes than heavy stuff. But it might change... And at this price, it stays totally interesting

  6. I remember I tried Green Button some months ago. And unfortunately I found that, back then, it could not work with Blender's physics simulations. It just wouldn't render particles. The team was very nice to me and told me they were working on getting physics working.

    Anyone know if green button supports physics now a days? It would be great, because I found their workflow really easy and fast, and the price is great.
