Renderfarms for Rhino
If you have been in the same problem as we were, you know the pain... As we all know, it's a bit a problem to find a renderfarm supporting Rhinoceros and V-Ray. Unfortunately, most common commercial solution - RebusFarm - does not support Rhinoeros at all, so during our work on 6k renders of the skyscraper in New York City, we had to find a quick solution. Fortunately, we were able to google some options and we tried some of them. Here is the table of what we found:
We provide RenderSolve as the first solution in a list as we used this renderfarm for the project mentioned before. Rendering was fast, the cost was OK, however we struggled a bit when we had to approve the test image, as this one was ok, but it missed some textures, which were packed together with the model, but staff did not take the time to track them and reapply. We had to fix the issue in PS later on, but still - we were satisfied with the service - mostly because of their prompt responds. Yes, we needed the image ASAP!
GarageFarm might be OK when you use older V-Ray versions. I personally use latest nightbuilds, so it was quite hard to manage a render here - GarageFarm claimed they use the latest version of V-Ray, however it was not truth - so we lost some precious time when finding out the reasons behind missing lights. This was our first choice, mainly for the price, however for the final render we had to switch to different renderfarm.
We did not have a chance yet to try out renderpower.dk - if you have some experiences, feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments area below :)
Felix online rendering
We didn't try Felix yet. If you have something to tell us and you think we can publish it - see the comments area below :)
The School of Architecture
The School of Architecture now has a small render farm. It uses Deadline software, along with Rhino and V-Ray for rendering.
So to sum it up - there are some renderfarms all over the Internet supporting Rhino. If You have any other tips, or other favorite services - don't hesitate to let us know, so we can add them to the list :)
