What Artists Are Saying:

Maurice Hyett, Houdini/Flame Artist at FOX Studios


“I work in broadcast.  Crazy time constraints really limit the quality of art.  The GridMarkets service has really opened up the possibilities of jobs I can deliver. It opens up the awesome world of Houdini with very fast render turnarounds. It has been a HUGE game changer for me and my clients.  Work is fun again! Thanks to GridMarkets and Houdini!!”

"Ours is a very demanding industry. Knowing that the terrific team at GridMarkets has your back is priceless. Highly recommended!"

Georgios Papaioannou, Freelance Artist

Installation was simple and straightforward. The service is great: fast, automated and affordable for a freelance artist. It even worked flawlessly with custom tools like alShaders and the qlib asset library. I strongly recommend it and definitely going to use it for my future projects."

"Besides the obvious fact that with GridMarkets I don’t have to wait for days to see the result of a sim or render it’s also a matter of getting a better result!


I can spend more time being creative, refining or shading and still meet my deadline with no sweat.”
