What is Cloud Rendering?
Cloud rendering (or farm rendering), is the process of rendering a 3D application’s scene file and assets over a vast computer network (also known throughout the industry as using a "Render Farm"). Individual frames are sent through the network and assigned their very own server. Many high end studios, architectural firms, universities, and independent artists use commercial render farms because of the convenient availability of a vast rendering infrastructure. This allows artists to create more complex content, and allows customers or managers to review and edit work much faster as well.
When a new job is submitted it is entered into Render Rocket’s Network Management System. From here it has two options: begin rendering (if servers are available) or enter the 'queue' state and begin rendering as soon as a server (or servers) become available. Once servers are available they are assigned to a customer’s job and rendering begins! Once a frame is complete, it outputs the image to the customer's account and frees up that server to pick up the next frame in queue. After all frames of a single job are done, the management queue removes the job from the queue and sends the information to the website, notifying the customer that your frames are ready for download!
