How it Works
Getting Started with Cinema 4D on GridMarkets
(length: 30 seconds) This tutorial demonstrates how easy it is to launch a C4D render submission to the GridMarkets cloud.
Submit using Redshift3D
(length: 30 seconds) Learn how to submit a Cinema 4D job using Redshift3D to GridMarkets.
Get Started in 2 Steps
Create an Account - Risk Free
To test our service risk-free, 10 rendering credits will be added to your new account, sufficient to produce roughly 50 frames (assuming 10 minutes/frame). Note that the free credits expire if unused +14 days from account creation.
Install Envoy (which now includes the plugin)
GridMarkets' Envoy tool manages the upload of project files and download of results. Below are the download links to Envoy by operating system. HERE are a few Envoy related pointers that are worth first reviewing. See HERE for an Envoy tutorial.
Our pricing is determined by the choice of A) service level and B) machine power.
The Service Level choices below decide the number of accessible concurrent machines when rendering. Pressed to get a project done fast - go for Rush. No worries - go for Economy. The choice of setting can be changed at any time via the GridMarkets user portal (for which a GridMarkets account is required to access).
(Need more than 60 machines? See our Subscription model.)
Our machine Power Level options for CPU and GPU resources are shown below. These choices can be changed at anytime.
* Costs are represented in $US/machine-hour. We charge by the machine-second. Costs are all inclusive (i.e. machine time; operating system and software licenses; data egress and 15 days of data storage are included).
"OB" refers to a machine's approximate Octane Benchmark performance used to deliver the service.
Note: To help balance its machine inventory, GridMarkets may run your submission on the performance equivalent of your machine selection. Your project costs and performance will not be impacted in such cases.
C4D Release Notes
GridMarkets credits are used to pay for our service. They do not expire, are not refundable and can be purchased On Demand or by Subscription (the Subscription option discounts credits for large jobs or sustained work). Purchase credits via the GridMarkets user portal or via the buttons below.
Other credit related bits and bobs . . . .
To ensure your job runs to completion, maintain sufficient credits.
As your jobs run, you will receive emails warning of low credits.
For real-time low credit warnings, see HERE.
If all credits have been consumed, frames running at the time will continue to run until your GridMarkets Credit Overdraft Limit has been reached (see FAQ "What is the GridMarkets Credit Overdraft Limit?…), but pending frames will not be run.
Suspended submissions can be resumed once a positive credit balance is restored.
