SketchUp Cloud Rendering

Rendering the SketchUp model is a big thing. A photorealistic and photogenic rendering of the SketchUp models makes a difference in the eyes of customers. It looks great, superb.

Many problems may occur such as getting the work done on time without eating up the development window or spending a small fortune on hardware that you will only use occasionally.

However, sometime rendicity releases immense processing power rupture open for the companies that get to know the spikes in order to obtain High Performance Computing (HPC) capability.

Getting HPC is not very easy. Most of the companies do not have the in-house processing aptitude. They are depending on demand drive faster turnaround, no production processing queues and increasing top line revenues.

It is to mention that the rancidity team has a major experience in innovative computing research and major experience in animation industry.

The SketchUp users virtually tied together for unlimited rendering when additional capacity expenditure baring needless technicalities.

What is rendicity? What does it do?

It is very simple. The first step is to create content. The seasoned 3D artists along with architects and engineers makes the models with the computer supported design tools. These tools create description of scenes, which identifies the characters, and objects are visible, camera position, lighting, and other visual elements. One of these tools, SketchUp, is a 3D modeling programme used by architects, interior designers, civil and mechanical engineers, filmmakers and videogame designers. A freeware version, SketchUpMake, and a paid version with additional functionality, SketchUpPro, are available.

The rendicity is actually the tool that helps the designers to create photorealistic image from the models of SketchUp.

The photo realistic rendering perfectly present the material properties, such as reflection and light properties such as colour or soft shadows. This can make the difference to the realism of image or frame though the properties and behavior are tremendously tough and intricate.

We can describe it. The light can reflect in mirror, but spread from painted exterior. The perfect rendering takes a great deal of computer power.

Depending on the complexity of the scene, it can literally take days to render each frame on an in-house render farm.

If you are trying to render on your local machine, this processing load can make other work difficult or impossible.

Rendicity has developed software that helps to exponentially speed up this process and lets you keep on working.

What is cloud rendering?

Cloud rendering is outsourcing the rendering process to an internet service that accepts 3D scene descriptions and returns finished images. There are a number of ways that such a service can be provided. One way is an opaque high-level service that simply accepts the scene account and returns the frame with no control over the underlying rendering process. This approach has the advantage of effortlessness but at the cost of control.

The SketchUp artist does not have control over how long the rendering will take and many resources will be assigned to it. In addition, services such as these typically share a pool of rendering machines will the studios using it. Sharing resources with others can create you nervous in case your digital possessions, such as 3D models, pour out to other studios of the world at large.

Another approach is to create private pools of machines (orrender“farms”) for studios, addressing concerns about security and providing the studios with control over the resource usage. An important factor to consider is whether render farms should be regarded as semi permanent infrastructure, that persist for months at a time, or disposable items that can be created and destroyed within a short time frame (an hour or less). A related issue is the billing model: should the studio pay for the service using pre-pay, pay-as-you-go model or receive a monthly bill after the fact?

Rendicity offers private render farms. They are created automatically, on demand, and can be disposed of at will. The Rendicity uses a pre-pay model, as it is the best fit for the transient and disposable nature of Rendicity render farms.

You begin using the Rendicity service by installing the software and buying rendering credit (using a credit card). You then create render farms as needed to render scenes and dispose of the farms (and the associated cost) when finished. When your rendering credit is exhausted you simply top up again.

SketchUp Cloud Rendering

SketchUp has a built–in OpenGL renderer that let you see your model in 3D with shadows and illumination from the sun. OpenGL is a multi-platform application-programming interface, or API, for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics.

While SketchUp let you place colours and textures on objects, photorealistic rendering add-ons let you make the most of these textures and reflective features and helps, they ‘pop’ off the page, which adds realism and impact. Nothing improves a rendered image more than attention to detail, and, for example, adding the correct type and intensity of reflection, to not only the main features in an image but also the smaller elements; helps push the result towards photorealism.

Features: The key consideration when rendering in SketchUp is “How long will it take?” Many users need their work rendered quickly, and that requirement brings up the crucial relationship between time and the number of machines required for a particular rendering job.

Rendicity can provide machines with upto 32 core processors and 244 gigs of RAM to tackle the toughest of tasks and for those with less demanding require Machines with three GPUs are very affordable.

It’s worth reiterating the benefits of Rendicity’s approach to cloud based rendering for SketchUp users. The first is privacy, you don’t have to give a third party your assets.You have control and you don’t have the risks associated with handing off your work.The second is scalability; Rendicity can provide access to literally thousands of machines instantly.

You make the decision between speed and cost. It is essentially the best of both public and private rendering solutions: You have the control and security of an in house rendering solution with all the benefits of instant, and essentially unlimited, scalability. Finally, there is the unparalleled ease of use. Only the manager needs training on accessing the cloud and making financial decisions, leaving the artist or design free to do what they do best.
