Render Node Specialists
We design and build Powerful, High Speed Desktop & Rack mounted Render Nodes (or Render Boxes, Rendering Servers as they might also be known).
Render Nodes help improve creative workflow and project throughput by off loading the main render task(s) away from the local 'modelling' Workstation or studio environment and onto a dedicated Render Farm (built up of a selection of Render Nodes).
Whether you need to render High Resolution Still Imagery (of any resolution), create Complex Animation Sequences, or want 1 to 1,000 render nodes for dedicated 3D rendering; our range of powerful Render Nodes deliver a proven, reliable and robust rendering solution that can be expanded and scaled in accordance to your budget and/or project requirements.
Built to not only meet, but exceed the rigorous performance requirements demanded by today's leading creative design studio's.
How do Render Nodes Work?
Each Render Node is connected to your corporate network using an integrated Gigabit network interface card(s) (LAN connection). Once the render node is configured on your network, third-party rendering management and software rendering plug-in software (such as Autodesk's Back-burner for 3D Studio Max with vray render plug-in) can be installed to manage the individual render nodes. This process is called distributed or network rendering and is very simple to configure and manage.
The third-party render managing software allocates the frames to be rendered to the render node and continually disperse the frames until all frames are rendered. Once completed the render node(s) sits idle until additional frames are sent to be rendered.
If your chosen application does not support "Network" or "Distributed" rendering then versions of your application can be installed on each render node so projects can then be rendered locally.
