We have been making steady progress on a small VFX test. The live action has been filmed, the CG is almost complete, and all that is left is to render everything and get it into the hands of our Compositor, Fabio. To do that, we needed access to a Render Farm. A Render Farm is a large collection of processors with the sole purpose of rendering out your CG elements. With our test sitting at roughing 35 minutes a frame, it would take us roughly 240 hours to render out the test on our personal computers. Using a render farm, that task can be shared across hundreds of computers and finished in a fraction of the time.
With that in mind, we are very excited to announce that we will be teaming up with RenderNow (http://rendernow.co.uk/) to help us render out our VFX test. They have been very supportive of the project, and we are excited to have the chance to work with them. Definitely check them out!
