Our Pipeline

Envoy securely transports your files to us, which we store for 15 days. Learn more HERE.  

Reuse files that you have uploaded; no need to upload unchanged files on subsequent submissions.

Use our 3D software plugins to select a machine count/config; then easily submit to GridMarkets directly from your 3D software interface.

Download completed frames to a designated directory (e.g. local, S3, Dropbox, other).

Selected frames download automatically as they complete, no waiting.

Envoy securely auto downloads your frames as they complete.

Run your fav renderer using as many concurrently running nodes as needed . . . we provide the required licenses

Use our Nuke node to process frames through a Nuke script after rendering.

With our transcode node, compile frames into a video file on our servers.

Use our calculator to estimate costs.  Use  our subscription & weekly plans to reduce the cost of large projects.

How it Works

 

 

Once our Nuke plugin is downloaded and installed, you will be able to submit to GridMarkets from within Nuke using the interface that follows.  Hover over the section for details.

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.   See the yellow indicators in the image below and HERE for more information.

 

Get Started in 2 Steps

1.

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.

2.

Install Envoy/Nuke plugin

 

GridMarkets' Envoy tool securely manages the upload of project files to our cloud as well as the download of results to the storage location that you designate.  See the links that follow to download our setup files, which include Envoy and our Nuke Plugin.

 

  • HERE are a few Envoy setup related pointers that are worth reviewing.

  • HERE are plugin install instructions should you have any issues.

 

 Pricing 

 

 

Our pricing is determined by the choice of A) service level and B) machine power.​  

A.

Service Level

 

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).

Economy

Select up to

5 concurrent machines

Standard

Select up to

30 concurrent machines

Rush

Select up to

60 concurrent machines

(Need more than 60 machines?  See our Subscription model.)

B.

Machine Power

 

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).

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.

 GridMarkets Credits 

 

 

GridMarkets credits are used to pay for our service.  They do not expire, are not refundable and can be purchased On Demand ($1 buys 1 credit) or by Subscription ($1 buys more than 1 credit).  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.
