Come see us at Siggraph!  Enter to WIN a FREE Year of RENDERING!  We are launching Cool New Technology & Sweet New Pricing

Stop by and see us at Intel’s Media Lounge, Room 201-B (upstairs) and catch a demo of our new LaunchPad application and Throttle resource management.

Once installed, LaunchPad allows artists to tap into the power of cloud rendering with one click-and-submit step. Accessed directly from within the menu of Autodesk® Maya®, 3ds Max®, or Maxon Cinema 4D, LaunchPad will automatically check, package up and submit a render job (or series of jobs) to the Render Rocket cloud. This helps artists launch render jobs faster, and removes the risk of render failures by ensuring that all elements of the scene file, all references and networks paths, are correct. Once submitted, artists can monitor their submitted renders from within the application in order to see which jobs are launched and rendering.  LaunchPad will be available for Windows and Mac.

Render Rocket’s Throttle puts customers in the pilot’s seat with the ability to control render resources working on their project and the ability to manage their project costs and render delivery. With Throttle, users can now scale up or down the number of servers working on their renders on-the-fly in order to meet their deadlines and budgets.  For high performance “need it yesterday” jobs, users can “throttle up” to hundreds of servers; or for projects where cost management is critical, users can “throttle down” the number of servers for significant cost savings. In addition, users can prioritize their render jobs using drag-and-drop functionality in order to best use their resources.

Pricing! Starting on September 1, 2013, Render Rocket will also charge by the number of renders nodes per hour rather than by cores per hour. Each individual render node will cost $1-$4/hour, representing a 35% decrease versus current pricing.  Loyalty discounts will now apply for studios that use Render Rocket’s services often to further reduce render costs. This lower cost combined with the increase in control with Throttle provides a far better experience and return on investment to artists, producers and studios who are working in fast-paced environments with constantly shifting priorities.
