Hey gang, was curious if anybody knew of a reputable render farm rental service. ?We will possibly need to scale up our render capacity to reach a deadline within the next week or so. ?I don't think cloud rendering will work for us because the files are so huge and our area has no fast ISPs.
Do the rentals usually come with Windows? 3DSMax? Fusion??
Thanks,
-Will

Agreed, as has been said a million times before in this forum, William & Bell are the bomb.
They'll rent you racks of nodes.. I'd guess you'll have to handle software install/licensing yourself.
Locally, i think Bruce Gionet used to rent racks of nodes all ready-to-go... haven't heard from him in a few years though.

Hi Bill,

There's not a huge pile going on here, the best I could offer is that I've got some supermicro twin1Us that I could rent you - but they don't really come with anything.

If cloud is out that really narrows your options...

Hi William, Bell has gotten our NYC office render nodes rather quickly. It's who I use for both station and node rentals. - Brian On Sep 24, 2013, at 8:27 AM, Dan Young wrote: > Hi Bill, > > There's not a huge pile going on here, the best I could offer is that I've got some supermicro twin1Us that I could rent you - but they don't really come with anything. > > If cloud is out that really narrows your options... > > Sent from my iPhone > >> On Sep 24, 2013, at 10:24, William Sandler wrote: >> >> Hey gang, was curious if anybody knew of a reputable render farm rental service.
