Recently we introduced a new CostCalculator which is based on Cinebench benchmark values. This means that we can determine your CPU performance more accurately and give you a better cost estimation for your render.
The CostCalculator will determine your CPU performance automatically. If your processor is not in the database yet you can go to “Submit Benchmark”, run Cinebench on your computer and submit your Cinebench score together with a screenshot of the result. After the score has been checked by an admin, the new benchmark will be added to the CostCalculator and you will get a credit voucher of 10 Renderpoints added to your account.
A brand new feature is the integration of the CostCalculator in the Farminizer plugin, so you can now calculate your render costs in your 3D application before you export your render job. This makes it faster and easier to estimate your renderjob and avoids annoying and time-consuming steps.
