the last update fixed the bug
I just completed 2 test render successfully :-D

the farm run Indigo version 3.6.20
make sure you use that version too - older versions are not able to open the IGI file we provide

a wish to all - send me test jobs !! :-P

Hi,

Will the rebus farm plugin work from blender directly as the vray standalone works with scene check and upload?
Of course on MAC OSX...

Anyways great news!

Ahhh... To have real benefit from that one needs a tightly integrated indigo version/ plugin for blender... Using GPU.

I am also curious about the price comperism with the ranch vs. rebus... Sometimes I had surprises with the price of a rendering ...

first we do standalone render - no direct implementation to a 3d application

its not possible to have surprice about the costs - you setup the price before render starts - even if it run over the maximum its discounted afterwards (can happen during IGI merge)

Test went great. Thanks for offering a great service :D

I think you need to check the % amount in the jobs panel on the website. It lists finished jobs as at 11900% complete =P

Hi there,

Thanks for your efforts to resolve this for me - ran the .exe and got this error message though:
Farminizer error.JPG
However, re-downloaded the main Farm manager.exe from the website and trying the import again and thus far it seems to be working, its imported ok and is uploading now....

EDIT:
So, results and thoughts then - works well, the Farminizer is very good, a nice interface I think and its nice and clear exactly how much a project is costing. The software did do some back and forth once I hit the 10 renderpoint limit, emailing me to tell me to buy more renderpoints to finish (which seems pointless if I've set a specific price limit), but then automatically dropping the percent complete and then balancing this with the maximum cost to complete the render precisely on budget.

The .igi file that got downloaded, once opened in my Indigo shows 2800spp which is pretty good for the time taken. Its still too grainy for my purposes, but then it was limited to the 10 renderpoints and a simpler project would probably be fine.

Question though, why does the download include 4 .rar files each one containing 1 .igi file - apparently all identical?

But generally, works really well, will use again.

we zip the igi into parts of 75mb for faster download
in case the DL fail you not start DL all the entire zipagain - you download only the missing or corrupt parts

we do so since the downlaod is more faster aswell if DL fail you not need to start from scratch

i just update to 3.6.26

some word of warning
if you download the IGI and the image is totaly black you maybe need to adjust the tone mapping to eighter Reinhard, Camera or Linear

Hi,

I want to do a ca 2000 frames long animation using Indigo on your render farm service - do I have to upload a separate IGS for each frame, or can you open a blender file and render the frames out from there?

Or is there any other efficient method to do it?

Thanks,
Oscar
