Ejnar Brendsdal: “RenderStreet has saved my back more than once! I totally owe those guys!”

“My overnight 12 hour laptop render for a client meeting was once ruined half an hour before it was needed. Popped into www.render.st and uploaded the file. 15 minutes later my render came in with an email. Client loved it. Boss loved it. I have been using it ever since!.

RenderStreet One: six months after the launch


At the beginning of this year we launched a solution dedicated to artists who needed an always-on rendering option without worrying about the added costs: RenderStreet One. Half a year in, and close to 1 million frames rendered into the program, we asked our users how they feel about it.

We decided to share these results with you because they represent an independent confirmation of the way the program delivers. The original questions and the aggregated answers are below (figures have been rounded to the closest mark for an easier read):

1.  How would you appreciate the value for money offered by RenderStreet One?

RenderStreet-One-value-for-money

One of the top priorities in designing this program was to offer a good value for money. We know that there is a continuous struggle in each project between ‘more detail’ and ‘render cost’ and sometimes it’s difficult to balance the two. Even in the case of a commercial project when the client pays for the render time, it’s difficult to factor in all changes and previz versions along the way. So we wanted to offer a tool to make this balancing act a bit easier.

Looking at the feedback from this question, I can say that the program checked this requirement. Roughly 90% of our users (the exact figure is 88.5%) consider it to provide a good or excellent value, which is what we were aiming for.

Karen Carr: “We rely on RenderStreet for fast, scalable rendering for huge single images, and for animations”

“You guys are great! We rely on RenderStreet for fast, scalable
rendering for huge single images, and for animations, using Blender
Internal and Cycles. The service is always great, the pricing is fair
and the jobs control panel lets us see in an instant where our projects
are. We like the Blender plug-in, too: we can launch jobs from within
Blender as we work!”

Customer story: “The best solution that I’ve found for my Blender rendering needs”

“I first used RenderStreet with a project that I knew I would have to outsource to a farm for. We reached out early on to see if the services that RenderStreet provided would mesh with our workflow. Not only did RenderStreet offer the services that we needed, but their staff made the whole process extremely approachable. There were moments when I had issues with my renders (problems that stemmed from my own inexperience), and RenderStreet reached out to me with answers to my problems before I had a chance to check them myself.

The workflow provided by RenderStreet is ideal; it is literally a one click process for me to get my render started on their servers. If I have a more complex setup, or if I have any questions regarding the process, I know that I would be able to contact them with my concerns, and they would respond in a timely manner with a well formed response to my comments.

RenderStreet offers the best solution that I’ve found for my Blender rendering needs. I look forward to working with them in the future.”
