Status Farm 1.4 update - render on the Amazon Cloud


Stratus Farm 1.4 is now available for 64 bit versions of 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design!

Stratus Farm is your personal, on-demand, scalable render farm that is powered by Amazon’s cloud computing infrastructure, EC2.

With the Stratus Farm plug-in you can send animation rendering tasks directly from 3ds Max to the Amazon Cloud. As your frames are rendered they are automatically downloaded to your local machine.

There are four sizes of virtual machines available for you to choose from and they are priced at an hourly rate per machine. Billing is handled through your Amazon account.

Visit to download the plugin-in, get access to the Stratus Farm sign-up page on Amazon and read the Stratus Farm documentation.
