A few minutes ago I ran into an interesting idea of a render torrent. You see the process of rendering takes a while, plus it’s very costy on resources. Although there are services that provide there computers to render, it’s rarely cheap. So the thing is, that if you want to render something fast – for example a video for a client you need a full equipped render farm or a lot of money to spend on render services. And there’s this guy with his idea of a render-torrent…
The idea is simple. If you have a spare resource – you can open a render client and just permit it to render other people’s jobs. While you do it, you get some sort of points or ratio. When you get enough of it you can spend it on your needs.
For example :
You are leaving your computer to render for the night on the daily basis. When you’ve got the urgent need to render your work, you spend it all on the render and get it free and fast. Simple and brilliant.
The guy who built it has a website for this service. It’s an enterprise level service, but it’s still great though. Fill free to take a look
