we are two young guys from germany and needed more cpu power for our animations. So we started developing a distributed render environment open for all.
You can share your computer and use other computers for rendering over the internet. Your priority for rendering increases as much as you share your computer. All the rendering runs in a virtual machine, so it should be pretty safe to run it on your computer.
I hope this is interesting for some of you. At the moment we only support the Blender internal renderer for rendering animations, but we plan to integrate yafray and luxrender soon.
If you are interested please help us testing as there are definitely still a few bugs to hunt, run your renderings and share your computer:
