How it Works
This video how to submit a Houdini render or simulation to the GridMarkets render farm. We describe how to layout efficient networks in both SOPs and ROPs for fire-and-forget sim and render submissions. We also cover some pitfalls and best practices as well as lesser known features.
New Feature: Establish a Job Submission Budget
Now you can establish a budget for any submission and automatically trigger one of three actions if the establish job budget is exceeded. Use this option to control your credit spending by submission. For more information related to this new feature, see HERE.
