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. I have used Respower mostly, $31 for 30 days 15 minutes task per frame or $10 for 7 days 15 minutes task. However I don't know how many cores I have been using :) ( It has been quite fast though).

      Now these guys at Green Button seem to have a great deal, however I would like to know a bit more: What would be the regular price after Nov 30?

    Now it is 0.01/core/hour,  so what is the minimum cores that we can rent? Also they said to request extra cores we have to wait between 15 or 20 minutes? So there must be a minimum to start the Job? Let's say if I want 200 cores at the beginning is that possible or you won't allow us to do that?

    • You don't really get to choose the number of cores. What you do is submit a job and they'll start you off with around 4 or 8 cores. The number of cores assigned to your job will be increased gradually.

      You benefit more when you submit a big job (1 single file), compared to when you submit many small jobs.

  2. It would be nice if the updated their plugins so that the worked with 2.60a. I don't have a superfast computer something like this will come in handy for Lux, it bets having to run my computer all day long.
