Question Squidnet, or other renderfarm software

Hello all,

I was curious if anyone had experience with "Squidnet" render software? If so what are your impressions? I have been placed in charge of creating a rendering farm at my office, and was researching various options. As of now, we are using backburner, and it seems to be pretty hit or miss. Some times no problems, other days I spend 3 hours trying to work through error messages, etc. Actually, if anyone is using any other software that you feel does a dependable, affordable job I would greatly appreciate any advice. The office predominantly uses Maya 2013, and After Effects.

Thank you for any help

We use Thinkbox Deadline and I'm very happy with it.

A second vote for Deadline. Great piece of software with a great team to support it. That being said, it is more expensive than Squidnet. I say give them both a try and see how you feel. Deadline gives you a license that allows for 2 free nodes before you have to pay. (Anything beyond 2 nodes and you need to purchase a license.)
