When is Cloud Rendering the Right Option?

Is building, licensing and maintaining a render farm a core part of your business? Some of our customers maintain their own servers and software and use StratusCore’s Render Rocket when they need to burst their computing power or quickly turn around a project. Others use us for all of their rendering needs and stay out of IT altogether. A growing number are moving more capacity to the cloud to reduce costs associated with maintaining their farm.

Check out this Infographic to help you understand the trade-offs. StratusCore's Render Rocket also offers unlimited free test renders that help with calculating rendering costs and ensure your output looks perfect before submitting your full project. Just choose the test option as your payment mode when you check out.

Whether you’re considering cloud rendering to increase your capacity or for all of your render needs, StratusCore’s Render Rocket is always on, up-to-date, and secure.

Our Artist Care team is available to answer any of your technical questions. Feel free to reach out to them for support:

Happy rendering!

Autodesk 3ds Max 2018 Coming out April 12th!


With the release of Autodesk® 3ds Max 2018® software scheduled on April 12, 2017, Autodesk will no longer include NVIDIA’s Mental Ray as part of 3ds Max. Instead, customers will be able to use Arnold for foreground (in-session) processing, in addition to Scanline, Quicksilver and Autodesk Raytracer (ART). Arnold was honored by the Academy with a Sci-Tech award this year and will enable customers to continue to create high quality work with 3ds Max 2018.

FEATURED CUSTOMER: Syndrome Studio: People’s Choice Awards 2017


Syndrome Studio's People’s Choice Awards 2017, Broadcast Package and Stage Graphics

"On our massive PCA project, we had many layers of 3D content that had to be rendered to use throughout all of the on-stage screens and the on-air broadcast package. Facing a tight deadline, we turned to Render Rocket to speed up the time-consuming rendering process. With as much on-demand processing power as needed, all accessed through a easy-to-use web-based interface, Render Rocket was an indispensable tool that helped us complete all of our rendering for the project stress-free. With rendering taken care of, we were able to focus more on the creative aspects and delivering a top-notch and comprehensive package for the People's Choice Awards."
