The Ranch Renderfarm has upgraded!

Written Wednesday 8 Dec


The new system is 2.5 to 3 times as fast as the 'old' RANCH (which could hardly be considered slow).
- a project which took one hour of render time is now done in around 20-25 minutes.
- we can render super-heavy projects as each RR node has 24 GB RAM.
- the gathering+merging phase is also 2.5 times faster, which means that a full merging from all the RANCH Runner nodes takes 8 minutes with 2 GB IGIs, when it took 20 minutes before.
- the IGI size limit that we can process (2.5 GB) is now increased to 5 GB.

This massive speed increase does not cost more to our customers. In fact on many projects it costs less!
