talk to our support in real-time, regardless of time of day and year

Every time I used other render services I felt I was in the dark submitting the job. And if something went wrong, too bad, you are alone. GarageFarm offers the chance to have a real-time chat with a person that can really help if anything goes wrong or if I have any doubt about something happening after I submit my work.

- Camilo Veliovich, 3d Generalist at Aparato

Having the burden of maintaining a render farm is not an easy task. It is not something we felt as a small studio we wanted to tackle. We would rather spend our time on making the work and not stressing why something is not rendering properly. There are people there 24/7 to help, and I never have to wait for things to get resolved.

- Dave Greene, creative director at Iamstatic

The quick response from the team and the simplicity of the workflow made the experience very comfortable. The staff responded almost in real time through their chat system and was amazing to work with. Very helpful and patient.

- Saskia Busch, executive producer at Wicked Pixels

One of our good partners (Brick Visuals) mentioned GarageFarm.NET and told us they are very good, fast, helpful, and also have fair pricing. They didn't lie. Working with you was one of the best decisions we made in the past years, thanks to the flexibility and friendliness you showed towards us.

- Gergely Harvath, co-founder of Digital Dust

I cannot give these guys enough props. We had a really short amount of time to get a massive amount of frames rendered. Not knowing anything about render farms I gave GarageFarm a try. From 24/7 support who never worried about answering my silly questions and guiding me through the process to insanely fast rendering time, I loved the experience. The plugin for Maya was so easy to use and the uploader/downloader tool just worked. If I'm not mistaken I think we processed around 32,500 frames in less than 2 days. Use these guys!!!

- Dylan Holshausen, founder of Speak Geek?

Thank you, guys. We have used tons of different render farm services up until now. You are the best among them. Absolutely you guys have the best support team. Thanks for your great assistance and service. We are appreciated.

FAQ

How can I get the 33% discount?

The 33% discount is automatically applied to all Blender jobs submitted to our render farm. You don’t need to do anything but to render a project and enjoy lower prices.

Can I estimate the cost of my project before I commit to the service?

You can get a quick estimate using our cost calculator. Remember though, it’s only an approximation and it only works for animations.

To get a more accurate estimate for animations, we recommend running a few frame test job using a step on the farm. For example, if you have 400 frames in your sequence, and set the frame range to 1to400s20, you will get 20 frames rendered in total. Our system will then calculate the cost estimate for the full range based on those frames rendered.

One thing to keep in mind is that the more frames you render from the range, the more accurate the estimated cost is.

For stills, please render the image in 1/5 resolution or any other smaller resolution. In the case of 1/5 resolution test, the cost of full resolution render will be 25 times bigger than the cost of a test. For example, if you want to render an image in resolution 5000x6000, run a test in 1000x1200 res first. If your test costs $1, then the estimated cost for the full res image should be around $25 (5 x 5 = 25). For a 1/4 test it would be $16 (4 x 4 = 16) and so on.

To dive deeper into the topic of testing we recommend giving this guide a read

I’m using a nightly build and experimental features. Can I render on the same Blender version on GarageFarm?

By default, we support all latest official Blender releases. We can also add custom builds and nightly builds to the farm upon request. You can request to add a custom Blender version by contacting our support. Normally, we can accommodate such requests within a few hours.

What should I do when my scene fails to render or when frames are corrupted?

We have a team of experts that are online and at your disposal at any time of the day 7 days a week. All you need to do is reach out through our live chat. and ask about the job that failed. We will investigate the issue and we'll assist you in finding the cause.

If the cause of the incorrect frames was our system failure, we will offer you a refund or some other form of compensation.

I have a Python script in the scene that generates thousands of different images i.e. NFTs. Can I use it on the farm?

Whenever you have a script used in the scene, you can request to get it enabled. Make sure the script can run automatically within the .blend scene. The script cannot be launched manually because we use command line rendering on our render farm. You can use Drivers to execute the code contained in the scene. Please contact our support to get more info.
