Pay only for the time you are rendering. It’s up to you how much you spend. It can be anything
between $1 and $10,000 or much more. You choose a tariff that matches your needs.

Priority is a price plan you can choose to render a job. You have a choice
of Low, Medium, and High. Each priority offers you a different set of
features and has a different rate. The higher the priority, the faster the
rendering.

Per job limit is the maximum number of nodes you can use in a single
rendering job. If you have mulitple shots or scenes that you need to
render at the same time, each of them can use the number of nodes
available for given priority. For example, you can have:

- job1 - 50 nodes, job2 - 0 nodes etc. (on Low)

- job1 - 75 nodes, job2 - 75 nodes etc. (on Medium)

- job1 - 150 nodes, job2 - 150 nodes etc. (on High)

Total or user limit is the maximum number of nodes you can use in total
at one time for all jobs that are rendering. It is a limit that applies only to
projects rendering on Low priority.

Node is a computer designed and built for network rendering. You can
think of it as a specialized server.

Ghz hour is the basic unit of cost calculation. It is a price for 1 Ghz used in
an hour of rendering. It means, we take the Ghz of all the nodes that were
used in rendering a job and add them up. Then we divide that total by the
rate according to the given Priority.

Node hour is just like the Ghz hour but the difference is it represents the
cost for a node. It is a price for 1 hour of rendering on a single node.

Here’s an example to illustrate how pricing works

Let’s suppose you have 50 frames to render. Each frame renders 1h long and you choose to render them on Medium Priority.

Medium Priority costs $1.67 per node hour therefore:

50 frames (50h) x $1.67 = $83.5

Priority is a price plan you can choose to render a job. You have a choice

Per job limit is the maximum number of nodes you can use in a single

- job1 - 75 nodes, job2 - 75 nodes etc. (on Medium)

- job1 - 150 nodes, job2 - 150 nodes etc. (on High)

Total or user limit is the maximum number of nodes you can use in total
at one time for all jobs that are rendering. It is a limit that applies only to
projects rendering on Low priority.

Node is a computer designed and built for network rendering. You can
think of it as a specialized server.

OB hour is the basic unit of GPU cost calculation. It is a price for 1
OctaneBench (OB) used in an hour of rendering. It means, we take the OB
points of all the nodes that were used in rendering a job and add them
up. Then we multiply that total by the rate according to the given Priority.

Example
10 nodes x 587 OB (Tesla K80 node) = 5870 OB (total OB points)
5870 x 1h x 0.0025 (low priority) = $14.7 (˜$15 per 1h on 10 nodes)

Node hour is just like the OB hour but the difference is it represents the
cost for a node and the rate is usually rounded up. It is a price for 1 hour
of rendering on a single GPU node.

Here’s another example:

Let’s suppose you have 50 frames to render. Each frame renders 1h long and you choose to render them on Medium Priority.

Medium Priority = $2.25 per node hour
50 frames (50h) x $2.25 = $112.5

We offer discounts for all upfront payments of $250 and above. The more you prepay, the larger the discounts applied and the more credits you receive.

You get $25 of trial credits upon opening an account. You can use it to test the farm and, afterward, you need to make a payment to top up the account with more credits.

Absolutely. We accept credit card payments made via PayPal and DotPay.

You don’t need to. You can make payments having no existing PayPal account.

No, our prices are all-inclusive. They cover the price of rendering, support, licenses, our in-house software, storage etc. with an exception of projects using Arnold which requires separate licensing (more info)

Classic account – there’s a $19 minimum price per scene

Cloud account – there’s no minimum price, you pay for as much as you render

You can make a bank transfer or send funds via Western Union.

You don’t need to get any subscriptions or commit to paying at all. Start using our service whenever you’re ready and stop using it whenever you want to.
