2016 was a transformational year for RenderKraft, both with the release of the new Maya plug-in and our new exciting collaboration with Filmgate Films – This now enables us to integrate into their VFX workflow and offer our clients high end compositing as an additional service:
* Brand new RenderKraft plug-in for Maya with encrypted SFTP file sync and job submit.
* On-demand VFX services offering Compositing of rendered images as well as Matchmoving/3D/2D Tracking, Mattepainting and CG/rendering.
RenderKraft (former RenderNet) has, since the start of 2009, proven to be a solid and price competitive cloud render service. For 2017 we have simplified the render process and pricing model combined with increased security. As usual, you get the whole farm when booked (no battling with other users) and we invoice at end of each month. A summary of updates:
* Maya plug-in allowing full 24/7 automated hazzle free submit of V-ray jobs.
* Irradiance Map prepass on farm, both still images and animations.
* Flat EUR 17/h (EUR 400/day) price model, no complicated pre paid packages or mass discounts.
* SFTP is now standard for file transfers.
Our goal has always been to offer a wider range of services rather than just pure rendering, thus in 2016 we partnered up with the talented VFX artists at Filmgate Films allowing us to offer a lot of additional services:
* Compositing; on-demand final compositing of rendered images, rotoscoping, keying, paint and cleanup in Nuke.
* Matchmoving; camera and object tracking in PFTrack.
* Matte Painting; artworks in Photoshop.
* CG; full 3D pipeline including previz, concepts, modeling, rigging, animation, texturing, shading, lighting and rendering (V-ray,Arnold,RedShift) in Maya.
* Co-production/commercials; funding, planning and producing film.
* Green screen studio; our friends at Stiller Studios provide a fully equipped green screen studio with Motion Control and Motion Capture at its best.
* Online; DIT/edit/conform/grading/online.

Of course vi sign NDA when needed and all file transfers are encrypted with no intermediate storage in the cloud.
