Render as a Service - Summus APP
Use our online SummuS APP (Application Processing Platform) tool to render images. Simply install the source-file synchronizer in your equipment and use the control panel to make use of all the power from SummuS.

In addition, if you work with Maya or 3DS Max, you can install application-specific plug-ins to launch your projects directly on our render nodes. Quick and easy!

This option is optimal for 3D Animation schools, colleges and institutes, as you have the possibility to distribute render credits among your students. This way you will be able to considerably reduce your in-house rendering costs. Click here to download our Press Kit for Academia.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which service is best for me?

The most economical service model for large projects (movies) is the dedicated farm, in which a custom farm is set up for the client to manage directly. In this type of service machines are rented by the week or month, and the price per render hour depends on the number of machines and the time period (the more machines and longer the time, the lower price per node per hour). This service is the cheapest one, but all the time used in testing or spent generating incorrect results is the client’s responsibility. In addition, the client has to control the render process, ensuring the results are correct.

For medium size projects, the most appropriate service model is the supervised render, in which SummuS staff monitors the process and assigns the necessary machines in order to meet the client’s deadline. The price in this case is 0.08€/GHzh, but we have work-volume discounts up to 40%. This kind of project has maximum priority in the farm. The main advantage is its convenience, as it is SummuS’ responsibility to manage any issues associated with the render process (excluding those asociated to the 3D model).

For smaller projects in Maya and 3DS, the most convenient option is the online service model through our automated platform “SummuS APP”. In this case the price depends on the volume of credits purchased (prepaid) and the desired priority. The client is in charge of the render process, but it can be controlled in real time through the web. Prices range from 0.02€/GHzh (lower priority and maximum credit volume purchased) to 0.07€/GHzh (maximum priority and minimum credit volume purchased). 

DOES THE SUPERVISED SERVICE WORK 24 HOURS?

Yes, we adapt our schedules to our clients’ needs. However, supervised projects require prior notice in order to provide the necessary resources.

I use 3DS or Maya. Do I have to use the online application?

We recommend using the online application whenever possible because it has many advantages (direct management of the render process, access to results 24/7, minimum price, distributed equipment, processing power…). However, all service models are compatible with 3DS and Maya. 

Can I rent equipment to use my own software?

Yes, we offer the option of installing proprietary software upon demand. The client must have all the required and current licenses for the installation and configuration of the software in our nodes.
