Cloud Rendering for 3D Artists and Architects

by Staff

on-demand cloud rendering service One problem with high end rendering projects ... they take hours to days to complete. This new on-demand cloud rendering service takes advantage of distributed rendering in V-Ray 2.0 software—includes the ability to control and monitor rendering on the desktop

RevUp Render, an innovator of cloud computing technology has rolled out a new cloud rendering service supporting V-Ray 2.0 rendering software from the Chaos Group. With the RevUp Render cloud computing platform, 3D graphics professionals can utilize the power of massive render farms and high-end production workstations via the cloud—allowing studios and artists to easily scale processing power up or down as needed.

With V-Ray 2.0 rendering software running as part of the RevUp Render platform, artists and studios employing 3D software with distributed rendering capabilities, including Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, McNeel Rhino3D, Trimble SketchUp, and other packages that integrate V-Ray and its distributed rendering (DR) feature can now work completely in the cloud—from beginning to end—utilizing RevUp COSMOS desktop cloud workstations and RevUp Render rendering solutions. Included with the service is a new mobile feature that extends the flexibility of the cloud even further by giving customers access to the RevUp Render desktop and nodes from mobile devices, including Apple iPad, iPhone, Android or Chromebook.

The RevUp COSMOS cloud workstation desktop offers full access to the V-Ray real-time rendering workflow, providing access to near limitless compute power on dedicated render nodes without the need to share hardware with other users.

Quoting  begins Traditional render farms have limitations—from shared resources that lower compute performance to the inability to interact with a rendering as it is processing. These can all greatly impact productivity ... With RevUp Render these limitations are no longer an obstacle to productivity. By offloading the process to the cloud, artists are free to focus on being creative instead of waiting on a render. Quoting  ends

From small boutique agencies to large production studios, RevUp Render is the best way to streamline budgets and reduce production costs, allowing customers to rent render nodes on an as-needed basis, paying only for the time used.

RevUp Render can also convert Autodesk Revit files to render on the new V-Ray rendering platform. Customers pay a nominal fee for the conversion of each Revit file and a small fee per rendered Revit view. This service allows architects to produce high-quality renderings at a reduced cost and in less time. Architects can often spend in excess of five to ten hours or more rendering a single Revit camera view of a building’s interior. However, with RevUp Render the process is reduced to minutes.

The RevUp Render platform as a service (PAAS) for 3D software supporting distributed rendering on V-Ray 2.0 is a self-service platform, while the RevUp Render Revit rendering solution is a complete service with expert artists to convert Revit files for quick turnaround. RevUp Render will also be releasing similar services for other rendering engines that offer distributed rendering (DR) capabilities. Contact the company for a proof of concept.
