Had never used a render farm before so was unsure what to expect. Decided to use Garage Farm as I needed some work rendered for a client asap (plusI got 50 credits for signing up). Uploading my scene was a breeze and allowed me to select the frames I wanted rendered to avoid duplicating images I had already done. I would recommend to anyone rendering large amounts of files or complex scenes and I’ll definitely be using Garage Farm for my future projects. Best of all though, is the fact that its 24 /7, I did most of my uploads at 3am which meant that when I woke up, all renders had been completed and was ready to download

I’m very happy with the GarageFarm support, they have helped me with some issues I had rendering Maya simulations by creating a custom script to accommodate my specific problem. At one point they have helped me with some plugin installation issues I had by waking up their developer in the middle of the night! Their auto upload and download software is stable, their prices are fair, and I’m looking forward to rendering next job at their farm.

I run a litle company that deliver cad and 3d viz. I work in Modo. Because of bad experience with rendertime and other rendefarms I normaly avoid big 3d viz projects. So when I gave GarageFarm a try on this last project, i did not have any expectations. But GarageFarm made my day. I can deliver in time, and the stress level is not even half of what it use to be. And they even gave med 25 creds. Because of GarageFarm I can relax tonight with my family, and continue tomorrow. Thanks alot. I will of course concider GarageFarm on projects in the future.

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 Garage Farm 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 32500 frames in less then 2 days. Use these guys!!!!
