Computer Graphics (CG) & Animation Industry is one of the industries, that has been growing strong with the days. This industry provides lots of job opportunities for the people around the world and has been constantly involved in projects with various industries and businesses. If you think that CG & Animation industry is just serving only film industry, you are wrong. The fact is that CG & Animation industry has been helping other industries such as real estate, gaming, advertising, etc. As the demand for CG animation is growing with days, the opportunities for existing and prospective CG professionals are also simply growing.
Successfully rendering a CG and animation depends on various factors. The role of CG artist is something very important. They are the one who is responsible for creating the models and effects using Computer Graphics. They use different software for making CG and animation models. In those days, when CG software were not found, artists used manual means for creating computer models. Most of them used free-hand drawing for making computer models, characters, effects and environment. As the process is manual, it took several hours for creating model and CG graphics. But CG software made everything very simple. Such software had easy usable interface and various tools that helped to create model without any manual drawing or process.
Beside CG software, render farm is one of the vital system for rendering CG and animation successfully. Lets discuss briefly something about render farm so you can have some understanding, if you havent known before.
To put in simple and plain language, render farm is nothing but a computer. Here, it is not a computer that you have in your home. This is high performance computer that is constructed by internet networking of multiple computers. It means a single render farm (usually) multiple processors, multiple or extremely big memory drive, etc. In short, a render farm has extreme powerfulness of multiple computers and hence it has ability to perform the complex computing much faster. This is the sole reason why render farm is used for making rendering CG. As the CG rendering task is something intricate and huge in terms of computing, ordinary or stand alone computers takes very long time or hours for rendering the CG. But with render farm, high level CG rendering can be finished in less time of what it takes to render for standalone computers.
If you want to become a successful CG artist or successful CG studio owner, it is necessary to have good render farm system. If owning a render farm looks so expensive or hassles, just get any of the cloud rendering services on the Internet. With online or cloud rendering services, you shall have unlimited renderings at extremely low cost.
