  1. I hope I am following etiquette and that I am posting in the right group. What are the differences between these render farms and how can they benefit your project? Let’s find out! 1. What is Rebus render farm? RebusFarm is a German-based company that is part of the growing commercial rendering service for studios around the world. The company has a high capacity for data rendering with 3,000 XEON CPUs at their disposal. They offer a cloud rendering service that can handle almost every major 3D software out there. It is based on the model of SAAS (software -as-a-Service). You will submit your job directly from a plugin inside the 3D software. With the experience of more than 14 years in the field of 3D rendering, Rebus has been improving a lot to be one the the most trusted render cloud services. For CPU rendering, the render farm operates with AMD’s Thread Ripper 3970X and for GPU rendering, they provide NVIDIA’s Quadro RTX 6000 to render jobs on the cloud. 2. What is iRender farm? iRender is a Vietnamese company operating internationally that is based on the model of IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), which rents the GPUs and CPUs on the cloud for 3D rendering. iRender was developed with the most powerful GPU and CPU infrastructure that can handle all the heavy-duty tasks like a breeze. The GPUs used are RTX 2080Ti/ RTX 3080/ RTX 3090 with heavy-duty processors (Dual Xeon E5-2670 & Intel Xeon Processor W-2245) having multiple cores to support the heaviest workload. The simple to use rental service by iRender is the best, as it involves just a few steps to get started. First, register to the service, then create a new work environment or better known as a system image. This work environment will be saved and automatically loaded for the user as soon as logging into the account. After that, a remote desktop connection will be set up, and the user will be provided with a file with login credentials. The file transfer process is unique, it can transfer files even when the server is turned off, so the users can make changes any time. Furthermore, major cloud transferring platforms like Dropbox, Google Drive are also supported. Additionally, multiple servers can also be used, and the system image can automatically be generated, thus providing usefulness to the users. iRender aims to facilitate everyone to access to the best and most powerful machines to turn their dreams into reality by providing their cloud render services for them. 3. Render farm considerations Render farms do have sets of parameters and limits, so it isn’t always easy to compare companies. There are also important questions that you should have answered before hiring a service, such as: · What software & plugin does the render farm support? Is the render farm compatible with the software you’re using? · How much are you looking to spend? · Is the pipeline and workflow easy enough to be integrated and used? · What are the security, policy, and guidelines on the protection of privacy that they offer? · What are payment methods, claim and refund policies? · How about the customer support? Some farms can’t export in a file type compatible with a certain workflow. A render farm’s highest priority is to save you time, so as with any processor-heavy project, be sure to do as much research as you can so that you can fully enjoy the benefits this type of service can offer. 4. WHICH ONLINE RENDER FARM IS BEST FOR YOUR NEEDS? I have actually used both render farms and I use 3dsmax, vray. I am an interior designer and have been using different render farms and I can tell you the differences and what will benefit you more. When I used Rebusfarm it was nice, but I now know that it has some cons when using it. I sent a few renderings from my interior scenes and it was very expensive but since that was the time I started using render farms I was impressed with the speed and thought that the cost was normal. Then you have to have everything organized such as your textures, plugins, maps, and all your settings otherwise it won’t render. Then if there are problems with the rendering they will message you which is a good thing, but they won’t continue the render until you fix absolutely everything. Now, don’t get me wrong but Rebusfarm is good but I would say for smaller projects and if you don’t have a tight deadline. As I have used them for large architectural projects and they were not close to the quote that was given with their calculator and during tight deadlines I have found that they aren’t really good on response times with customer service even on their Germany working hours. So just be sure you know what you are getting into before sending your render to Rebusfarm. Now iRender is a bit different from the average renderfarm that I find. Unlike Rebusfarm, it doesn’t have a plug-in that you download and a client. iRender brings a cloud GPU rental service that lets the users make use of the powerful and robust features of the servers at iRender while using their own computers on their own desk. Users will access the servers through Remote Desktop Application, and then, take full control of the remote machines. I can send multiple files for renderings at once and not have to worry about the rendering being stopped just because one thing is missing. Also, their customer service is much better and they get back to you almost right away. I have also found that when using iRender my costs are MUCH less than before and you can even see it for yourself. They are one of the lowest priced render farms and it’s one of the reasons many people use them. I have also added one of their support teams Whatsapp numbers and whenever I need help right away she is able to reply me asap anytime and seems to be awake 24/7 and seems like she never sleeps but it’s always the same guy. I also love the convenience where I can see the progress of the rendering at any time if I need to fix something and render it again. 5. FINAL THOUGHTS These services are readily available to offer you the power and expedience you need to put your project, concept, or presentation together quickly and beautifully. Honestly you can try both Rebusfarm and iRender farm to see what you most prefer, but my preference is iRender farm for a few main reasons. One of them being is the convenience of their client and the user interface is simple that anyone can use. Two, it is very cost effective compared to many other render farms and allows you to save a lot on rendering costs for future and many other renders. Three, I can see the process of my rendering to see if I need to resend the rendering. Four, you can contact customer support at any time to customize the hardware upto your needs. Five, you are able to run single card software like Lumion, Sketchup, Unreal Engine, so on, which can’t be supported on other render farms. Six, the servers at iRender are highly available when you rent in days or week or month, users can access whenever they need without worrying about full servers or queueing in line like common cloud render farms. Next, as they don’t charge you for the transfering files. Lastly, their customer service is top notch so if you have a deadline you can contact them and they will always be happy to help. So those are my reasons but I suggest trying both renderfarms and see what you find suits you best.
  2. hi all, I have 1430 rebusfarm renderpoints for sale - since a while I have my own small farm in my studio so I dont need anymore. The renderpoints are transferrable, I would give them away 60% off -> that is 570 usd only, for 1430 renderpoints. let me know if you are interested. Aron http://www.aronlorincz.com
  3. Hi The time has come ))) The question is GPU or CPU? There are a lot adds and sites about that issue at web, but interest about "underwater stones" which can eat a budget fot the same time Actually, *welcome your experience and ideas
  4. Typically the best value is found somewhere in the middle ground, but where exactly?; Which items are worth buying in bulk when starting to build a bang-for-buck home built renderfarm from scratch, with economical future expansion being a key consideration? Its far easier to compare apples with apples, but we have to look at the sum of the parts here. Starting from scratch, would you build many or few machines, and with what type/quality of components? If we put our heads together, we could probably save many people in this arch-viz community from investing in hardware set-ups that don't expand well or represent good value. A concept for a scale-able farm isn't always straightforward, for example, we can ask ourselves: (assuming that space and aesthetics are not a concern, but that good value raw render power is paramount) CPUs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: What presents better value computing capability, e.g. lots of i7s, multiple pairs of Xeons?; Bottom of the range, Middle, or Top? GPUs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: Discreet graphics are probably good enough - right? Probably depends on the motherboard? PSUs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: Lots of cheap ones, or one really powerful PSU?; Which makes more economic sense? MOTHERBOARDs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: Are two single Motherboards ultimately better value than one dual CPU board? SSDs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: One OS for every CPU/or two, does not seem very practical. CASEs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: One huge/or custom case or lots of separate boxes? AND... then there is COOLING as well! Finally, what is the best value private render farm solution you've seen? and/or propose? (The concept is key. The exact specs are secondary).
  5. Guys, I posted twice before and I got trouble on some Bank Loan Issue So haven't brought anything yet. I am really struggling for Better Performance on My Viewport and Render too. Finally I got cash , & Budget is : 10,000 $ Requirement 1 : Fastest Render Possible on this Budget Requirement 2 : Superior Viewport Performance Possibilities 1 : Anything will be Accepted i7, Xeon, Or Renderfarm (Got No Idea About Render Farm) - If i7 Then It will give me Great Render Performance then Xeon? - If Xeon Then It will give me Viewport Performance Better than i7 ? May be Depends On GPU (Only) - If Renderfarm Got No Idea At All, Give me some Idea ,Pros and Cons Please Every suggestions are welcomed, like Create 2 systems 1 for work and 1 for Render node Anything like That GPU: I am intrested in GTX980 but GTX980 8GB Is releasing soon. Thanx In Advance may god gives you wings.,,,
  6. Hi everyone. Me and my partner have a small studio. At this time each one of us has as workstation a core2quad 6600 with 8gb RAM. We are planning to start a mini renderfarm, and for now we will buy 2 intel i7 with 12gb RAM. My question is: What is the best setting for this four machines? the two i7s as our workstation and the two quad 6600 as render nodes (one of them as server). Our should it be quad 6600 as workstation and i7 for render node. If i7 is the workstation, it should have a good video card right? I´m not sure about this but I think LC and IM can´t be calculated with the renderfarm help, in this case it would be better to use i7 as workstation. But, if I uncheck "multi-threading" for rendering in my workstation (so that I can still work on this machine), the best option is to have quad 6600 as workstation, and i7 working 100% as render node. Well, I´m not sure about all this, I would appreciate if you could help.
