Green Rendering Plan
Save The Planet - Render With Renewable Energy

GridMarkets is committed to reducing our carbon footprint to enable a more sustainable future. To fulfill our commitment, we partnered with industry-leading, clean energy cloud providers to build a clean VFX and Animation render farm. Our Green Rendering service provides creatives with access to affordable, low/zero carbon studio quality rendering.


Green Plan Calculator

The calculator that follows can be used to estimate the total cost of your Preemptible Plan submission.  If you prefer to see our pricing in a table format, see HERE.

  • "Service Level" = the maximum concurrent machines count/submission (see "Max. Machines)"

  • "Machine-Hour Cost (USD)" = the cost of running  one machine for one hour

  • "Est. Time (hh:mm:ss)" = Elapsed time in hours:minutes:sec to complete the submission

  • "Est. Cost (Credits)" = cost estimate (in GridMarkets credits)​

 


How to Find Your Average Render Time per Frame

  1. Enter your preferences for "Service", "Renderer" and "Machine".

  2. Submit 5 to 10 representative frames.

  3. Enter the average render time (see "Average Task Time"  in the screenshot example below) into "Ave. Render Time per frame (mins)".

  4. Enter the total number of frames in the "Frames" box.

  5. Hit "Calculate" to get your estimate.
