I've been giving some thought to buying a couple of render boxes, but before I do I wanted to find out if anyone has used an online render farm before?
If you have any experience and can answer 1 or more of my questions, that would be appreciated.
- Are they good value for money?
- What happens if you are using plugins such as turbulence or nextlimit manager?
- If they do support them - how do you upload the massive amounts of data needed to render the results - kind of seems impracticable if you got 80gb of cached data! Or could you use the farm to sim the data first?
- What happens about intellectual property rights - by uploading to a farm do I need to sign over the rights to use my content?
