Anyone know of any decent online render companies that support LW 9.5? I just found Rendercore.com who does, but my client (who will do the rendering) thought it seemed pricey at first glance.

At those prices you could set up your own farm. After just a few days it's not worth it.

I use ResPower a lot, and that's usually pretty good. Their subscription model seems to be the absolute cheapest out there. It's often very busy, though, and recently I've been getting as few as 20CPUs at a time (though commonly closer to 100).

Also, there's a 2-hours-per-frame per-CPU time limit. This can be a pain sometimes. Generally, though it's still the best value.

I should also mention that their customer service rocks. I emailed them yesterday morning saying "Can you install SG_AmbOcc for LW9.5 please?" and it took 'em about a half hour to do so.

Nice. That's 3 or 4 recommendations I got for ResPower. Thanks.
