Renderfeed’s custom rendering plugin for Cinema 4D R12and R13 enables you to easily and quickly check scenes for errors, submit scenes directly to the render farm and manage jobs. By entering your Renderfeed user name and password within the plugin you instantly unlock the power to control your own render farm in just one step. All these powerful rendering functions are available to every user who signs up for Renderfeed.
Scene Check + Job Submission
There are three main functionalities to the Renderfeed plugin: Scene Check and Job Submission; Project Collect and Upload; Tiled Option. The Scene Check and Job Submission function cleanly displays important attributes related to your scene’s render output settings. The plugin displays good settings as green, questionable settings as yellow and settings that will cause a render fail with red. Once all settings are to your liking, it is just one simple click to submit your scene to the render farm.
Project Collect + Upload
After clicking the “Start” button on your job two things will happen: first, your job will be sent to the queue to begin rendering; second, all frames that have finished rendering will instantly be downloaded in the background (if background downloading is enabled).
Tiled Rendering Option
The third main functionally of the Renderfeed plugin is the Tiled Render option. Before you submit your job, you will see a check box called “Tiled Render”. Check this box and specify how many tiles you would like the render to be split up into and select “Submit”. Now, the plugin will slice your image into the specified number of tiles and send the job off to the render farm.
The render manager makes it possible to monitor, submit and manage jobs without leaving the UI of Cinema4D R12 or R13.
One of RENDERFEED’s most innovative features is the ability to download frames instantly as they have finished rendering. By using background downloading, you do not have to wait for your file to finish rendering and compressing. When your job has reached 100% on the render farm, your download will be finished soon after. This also enables you to preview frames while they are rendering; if there happens to be an error, the job can be canceled. Traditionally, an entire render would have to finish and download before an error would be noticed.
With the scene check and job submission feature it is easier than ever to ensure that your renders will complete, while the background downloading makes sure there is no bottleneck in your 3D pipeline. Use the tiled render option to make it as easy as possible to submit large format frames to the render farm. By combining the power of these 4 plug-ins rendering over the web is both extremely powerful and easy. All these great features come with every subscription to Renderfeed.
