The best way to find out how many core hours are needed for a job is to run a test render, (free with an account), and multiply that average time by your total number of frames.

What are credits?

Each credit gets you one core hour.

What is a core hour?

Simply put, it is one processor core running for one hour. For example, if you have a dual quad-core workstation (8 cores) running for 1 hour, that would be 8 core hours. Ten 8-core servers running for 1 hour = 80 core hours. Get the idea?

The best way to find out how many core hours are needed for a job is to run a test render, (free with an account), and multiply that average time by your total number of frames.

How many core hours for my job?

The BEST way to get an estimate is to run a few sample frames with our FREE Test Render feature and multiply that average time by your total number of frames. Need help getting started? See How it Works!

Do I have to specify the number of servers if doing Pay-As-You-Go rendering?

No, you just launch your render jobs and our automated system will add servers to get your jobs done quickly. For pay-as-you-go rendering, the final price will be the same regardless of how many servers were added to your render.
