Hello,

Im interested in gathering some information about render farms. If any one of you have any personal experience with renderfarms, and also any online renderfarms such as amazon provides then I'd like to hear all the handy information that you feel is important to know.

Cheers =)

Amazon Clouds EC2 don't work with LW because you need a scripted Linux Amazon Machine Image Setup.

Until 2 years ago, I used Lightnet where I worked. It worked 98% of the time very well. I had access to 30 very slow computers in an office building. I had access to an IT guy to help me in times of trouble. (LW 8)
Now as freelance, I just use my 2 very fast computers with lots of ram and lots of processors. (LW9.6) I like this much better, and it is less running all over the building restarting nodes.
I am not even sure if Lightnet works in the newest versions of LW.
