It’s an ideal option for individuals or organizations with variable workloads, as it provides cost-efficiency by aligning expenses with actual usage. Users can scale their computing resources up or down based on project requirements without being locked into long-term commitments.
  2. Rental Plan: For users with more consistent and predictable workloads, Rynus offers rental plans. These plans provide access to computing resources at a fixed cost, making it easier to budget for long-term projects. This model is particularly beneficial for enterprises that need to maintain continuous operations and require a steady supply of computational power.

In summary, Rynus meets the diverse needs of these Requesters, enabling them to harness AI’s full potential while optimizing costs and efficiency.

3D Rendering Requester

3D rendering is the process of creating a photorealistic 2D image from 3D models using specialized rendering software. It is the final step in the process of 3D visualization, which involves creating models of objects, texturing those objects, and adding lighting to the scene, then generating the final photorealistic images based on the way the rendering software interprets the information.

3D rendering is an essential step used in many many fields: 

  • Architecture
  • Film and Animation
  • Motion Graphics
  • Visual Effects (VFX)
  • Product Design and Visualization
  • 3D Games
  • Metaverse: Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Automotive and Aerospace
  • Robotics

The power of 3D rendering can bring even the most ambitious creative visions to life. However, the computing resources required can be a significant challenge, especially for large-scale projects. 

That’s where Rynus comes in. Our decentralized GPU network provides independent professionals and large studios alike with unlimited graphics processing power, enabling creatives to push the boundaries of 3D rendering without limitations. From graphics artists to architects, studio modelers to mechanical engineers, and AR/VR/XR visionaries, our platform is designed for anyone who brings digital visuals to life. Whether you’re a student or a professional, working solo or as part of a small studio or large studio spanning every corner of the globe, if you rely on 3D rendering to turn your creative vision into reality, you’re our ideal requester. 

Our platform is designed to support two key groups of 3D rendering requesters – Studios and Individuals.

1. Studios

Diverse Pipelines

In the 3D rendering industry, every studio has its own unique pipeline with varying degrees of complexity, shaped by its specific needs, workflows, and software preferences.  

Some may rely on a single software like Blender. For example, Blender is the core and the only software used for all the steps in their pipeline from Modeling, Texturing, Shading, Rigging, Animating,  Rendering to Final Editing.

While others may use a multitude of tools, with each stage utilizing a different software. 

For example, 

  • 3D Modeling using Autodesk 3dsMax, Autodesk Fusion
  • UV Unwrapping using RizomUV 
  • Texture Painting using Foundry Mari
  • Creating Materials using Adobe Substance 3D
  • Setting Dresing & Props using Blender
  • Rigging using Autodesk Maya
  • Animating using Maxon Cinema 4D
  • to Rendering using Chaos V-Ray
  • …..
  • Color Grading using DaVinci Resolve

This diversity in the pipeline makes it challenging to find a rendering solution that can accommodate the varying requirements of each studio.

How we fit: Our platform is designed to accommodate this complexity. We support all rendering engines regardless of what DCC application is used. Additionally, by providing a SaaS service, we handle all the software licenses as well as software compatibility seamlessly. This means that you can continue to use your studio’s preferred software and renderer, without having to adapt to a new system or compromise on your creative vision.

Outsourcing and remote working

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend of decentralization in studios, leading to a more dispersed workforce and a greater reliance on remote collaboration. It’s likely that this trend will continue even after the pandemic has passed. As studios adapt to this trend, they are outsourcing talent and services from a wide range of locations. This means that instead of having a centralized team working together in a single location, studios are now relying on a dispersed workforce, with team members working from various locations around the world.

The workload can be divided globally, for example:

  • USA: Project management, creative direction
  • UK: Storyboarding, concept art, and character design
  • India: 3D modeling, texturing, and lighting
  • Brazil: Animation, rigging, and simulation
  • South Korea: Compositing, visual effects, and final rendering

Remote working in 3D Rendering

However, this outsourcing model can present some challenges, particularly in the rendering step. Ensuring that rendering software and its version are compatible with previous modeling, animation, rigging, and simulation software and their version can be a significant hurdle. Moreover, this outsourcing model also means limited investment in powerful hardware, which can limit the studio’s ability to scale their rendering capabilities.

How we fit: We address the challenges mentioned above in three key ways: 

  • Software compatibility: We support all software versions and handle all their licenses, so you don’t have to worry about compatibility or license costs.
  • Powerful hardware: Our platform provides access to countless powerful GPUs, optimized for 3D rendering, which increases rendering speed and eliminates hardware concerns.
  • Global accessibility: As a decentralized platform with a network of workers covering the globe, you can access our services smoothly, without worrying about lag, no matter where you are in the world.

Using our services, you can focus on what matters most – creating high-quality content.

2. Individuals

In addition to studios, we also cater to individual creatives who require flexible and affordable 3D rendering solutions. Individual creatives include:

  • Students: Looking for a rendering solution to complete their graduation project, enhance their skills, and build a portfolio, but may not have access to high-performance hardware or expensive software licenses. 
  • Freelancers: Working on projects that require occasional rendering, with varying requirements. Depending on project requirements, freelancers may use various software like Autodesk Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, Blender, etc. They often work under tight deadlines and budgets, but don’t have powerful hardware, making it challenging to deliver high-quality work on time.
  • Indie artists: Creating personal projects or passion projects that require 3D rendering, but may not have the budget for traditional rendering services. 

These individuals often face big challenges when it comes to accessing 3D rendering capabilities. Traditional rendering services can be expensive, while many Web3 platforms only support specific software. For example, the Render Network currently only supports Octane. This leaves many individual users without a viable solution.

To address these challenges, we provide access to unlimited powerful GPUs and a wide range of rendering software.

  • Pay-as-you-go model: Only pay for the rendering power they need, when they need it. This means that users can easily adapt to changing project requirements, without being locked into expensive hardware investments.
  • Choose their software: Select from a variety of rendering software, including those not supported by other Web3 platforms. This ensures that users can work with the engine they’re familiar with without worrying about its expensive license. 
  • Focus on creativity: Without worrying about hardware or software limitations, individual creatives can focus on bringing their ideas to life. Rynus handles the technical heavy lifting, so users can concentrate on the artistic and creative aspects of their project.

By democratizing access to 3D rendering, Rynus empowers individual creatives to produce high-quality work, regardless of their budget or technical expertise. With Rynus, the barriers to entry are lowered, and the possibilities for creative expression are endless.
