Online Render Farm Recommendations

Hi all

Hoping someone can suggest a good Rebus Render Farm alternative. The OS X app has been very buggy for me since 2.0 and the service seems to be completely down (for Cinema users at least?) at the moment. I'm in need of an alternative in a hurry... Google has a lot of options but I'd love to hear some opinions and reccomendations.

When its been necessary to go beyond the capacity of our small internal farm, Ive used Renderking run by Dann Stubbs. Pricing and service were both good! Id certainly go back to Dann if i ever need the heavy render capacity again.

If you generally like rebus, then render rocket is fairly similar. Last I tried a few years ago, was a bit more manual. ie. upload a zip of your project and then it auto adds it to your queue.

Not a big fan of Rebus in reality, but I've always done well with Dann Stubbs's Rendeking which has served me well on a few projects.

Both RenderKing and RenderFeed were great for me. I would say Renderking is much faster but Renderfeed has more subscribing options (plans) to choose from

I have only used GarageFarm and they were pretty awesome (and speedy) at time! Pretty sure they still are

Been using Renderking for over a decade. Works well for me.
Dann can't be beat in terms of customer service and knowledge.

Out of curiosity----anyone know what happenned to Rebus?

I heard they stopped offering C4D rendering.

I asked them, and their answer was

"I apologize, but we still do not have an ETA. Please do not expect the service to be up and running before the next few days, possibly even later. For urgent deliveries, consider falling back to a different rendering service. We will let you know as soon as we have any tangible news on the matter."

That's a shame, because their workflow (smart checks, warnings, upload and downlad automation) is really great.

I'll check out some of the others in the meantime.

Damn that sucks about Rebus - ease of use was pretty great with the plugin. Do any of these other options support file check, upload etc via plugin?

I have used Renderking for years. Dann offers a great value, and his customer service is out of this world.

Since ReBus is out of C4D rendering business, I hope Dann will take advantage and expand renderking. But i dont even know how he Sleeps NOW!

GarageFarm, highly recommended, they use a plugin for Cinema that makes uploading a scene to render a 3 click affair, with automated up and download.Great 24/7 support, too.Love em.

what? rebus doesnt support c4d anymore? how? ..on their site cinema4d is still listed!?
  10 October 2015
GarageFarm doesn't list C4D on their webpage...

About rebus : it seems temporary... but still indefinite.
