What is a render coin?

One render coin equals one core hour. Each machine has 12-cores, so 1 hour of rendering on 1 machine will total to 12 render coins.

What is a core hour?

It’s 1 processor core running for 1 hour. For example, if you have a 12-core workstation running for 1 hour, that would be 12 core hours. Five 12-core servers running for 1 hour = 60 core hours.

How many render coins do I need for my render?

The best method to determine how many render coins is to render a few sample frames with our free testing option, then generate an estimate using our cost estimator. View our cost estimate example.

What payment options do you accept?

We accept credit cards (Visa, MC, Amex) and PayPal is accepted. You can choose to purchase render coins in advance or pay once the jobs have completed rendering.

Do I have to option to choose the number of machines I want to use?

No, just submit your render jobs and our automated system will apply the machines to your jobs. We only bill for the time it takes to render your job, not on the amount of machines used.

What is the difference between premium and economy option?

The premium option has a higher priority over the economy option. There will be a wait time for economy jobs. Also, the economy option offers renders for as low as $.20 per core hour.
