Affordable Render Farms

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I'm just starting to understand that in regards to rendering it's gonna be very difficult for my computer to do the rendering alone, and i'm just learning that there is such a thing as Render farms. I use Octane always as a renderer. 

 

I saw an ad here for Ranch Computing and checked it out, but the rates are unbelieavably high. Are you familiar with render farms? Which are the most affordable? And what about Team Render?

 

Thank you

Well, I am not sure there are big differences in the price of render farms, but they are very usefull. And TR is a thing where you would connect few of your own PC and then render the scene. I think there is plenty of farms that offers free credits, so before you fully commint, make sure you try the farm first.

I'm not an expert in render farms but I used Ranch Computing, it works well and their technical support is very nice. There may be cheaper ones but I've seen really more expensive ones too. I think they offert 30 euros if you want to try. Just be very careful if you use Turbulence FD, it doesn't work well at all.

  • After checking with Ranch Computing a 5 hour render job would be costing me 450 Euros according to their page. This doesn't make sense, i mean i've seen other farm pages where the default pricing is 12$/hour which is understandable, but $500 for 5 hours of render is straight-up insane, no? Or is there something i'm not getting here?

  • I basically shared the specs of this project just to see an approximate cost 

     

    It took me around 5 to 6 nights of rendering PNGs. 3050 frames.

     

    Benchmarked my Octane and the result was around 250 on my RTX 2070,

    Their result was it needed around 4 to 5 hours of render and it will cost 460 Euros.

     

    If i did something wrong what is it exactly?

    You could try the calculator that RebusFarm offers: LINK

     

    If they report the same results then well yes, the scene would be that expensive. Maybe you can further optimize it? The video you linked doesn't look like a frame should take a lot to render.
