    My question is like the topic…what is a good simple renderfarm setup?
    I was thinking about geting like 2 or 3 computers for a little home renderfarm.
    What is a good one that doesnt cost too much?
    Is RAM and CPU the most important?(Storage is important ofc.) Or is GPU important too?
    The programs I’m using is Maya, Nuke, After Effects and Premiere Pro atm.

    Best regards!

    Well, the recipe ingredients are:
    -2-3 render node computers, small with say 8 GB RAM, and at least 4 cores, would be nice to have video on MBO (dont waste money on GPU for now)
    -some gigabite switch
    -small NAS or file server so everyone can connect
    -cables 🙂
    -render management software like backburner or deadline or royal render…
    -patience and knowledge to make it all work

    Cook until well done 🙂

    Okey, thank you so much for your answer 🙂
    Just start small and then upgrade the nodes with time ^^
    Should I go for Intel or AMD? I was thinking Intel just for the Hyperthreading. AMD doesn’t have anything like that right?

    To brighten up a windowless bath or hallway, for instance, you can install a “light tube,” which slips between roof rafters and funnels sunshine down into the living space.

    If you want to change something in the house, I think it definitely should be windows. My wife and I chose every detail of the house for three days. It took a long time, especially when we were choosing newmarket window replacement https://thwindowsdoors.com/newmarket-window-replacement/ . You know, we improvised with the design of the house. And I’m glad that everything worked out.
