Hey everybody, I’ve been testing out a render farm with my friends over at Drop & Render and am ready to share it with you. I became friends with them while helping share about their plugin MeshBoolean, which I really love. Through that friendship I’ve been helping them as they ramp up their Drop & Render service. Let me tell you a bit about it. It’s an alternative render farm which supports ALL major third party render engines! That’s something I’ve been wanting for awhile, so I’m very excited about it! They have been purchasing tons and tons of video cards and keep adding more. So far they have about 100 GTX 1080 cards and they keep expanding. They also include support for a ton of standard plugins, like X-particles, Realflow, TurbulenceFD, Nitroblast, all GSG products, Forster, CV tools, Laubwerk etc. Render engines include Standard, Physical, ProRender, Cycles4D, Redshift, Thea, Octane, Vray, Corona and Arnold.
Here are some more highlights:
- It includes a C4D plugin which goes over 200 pre-checks so your projects render without errors or problems.
- Automated download directly to your hard drive after rendering.
- Support for all major render engines and plugins for Cinema 4D.
- Professional support from people that know C4D.
- With the syncing system you only need to upload your assets once (fully automated).
- With the Admin system you can have multiple accounts within one account and even set up admin features. This is really good for bigger companies.
Seamless and Fast
Drop & Render is a render farm designed for Cinema 4D rendering. It has a integrated in-app plugin and support for all major render engines and plugins. Start now and get €10 free render farm credits! Everything is fully automated from uploading your project to the output that is directly placed on your own workstation. Everything is integrated into the plugin inside Cinema 4D. Find the full list of supported applications and plugins here.
At Drop & Render the render farm security is one of the top priorities. All projects are stored on their server for no longer than 21 days and are encrypted by OpenSSL AES-256 and 2048-bit RSA data encryption. Your projects are safe with them!
The Power of Many
The render farm will dramatically decrease the amount of time needed to complete a render. Valuable time you can use working on and exploring new creative ideas. An average of 400 cores and 100.000 cuda cores for GPU rendering are just a mouse click away. Specs: Dual Xeon / GTX 1080 Ti cards. The render farm renders directly to your local workstation so you can work on your projects while they are rendering for you!
The great news is that if you sign up to test it out you can get €10 free credits! That’s enough to download the plugin and give it a test run for free. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. Also, they’ve given me an exclusive discount code just for you all, which you can use to get 10% off your first purchase of credits. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Let me know what you think!
