A new way to maximise renders/video edits

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A lot of the times when tech channels review a CPU, they use 3D benchmarks to put performance through its paces.  This provides a great heads-up for users with the budget to afford their own high-spec system, but what if they don't?


Just as the Shadow platform was launched a couple of years ago for gaming, Vagon has announced a similar remote desktop cloud service, accessed direct through your web browser.  Available in (currently) three tiers, with the highest being $4.99 USD per hour, Vagon aims to empower users with supercomputer-level processing for video editing, 3d rendering and simulation for research/engineering:


Seeing as how LTT has tried previously to make their video editing faster, they might like to review the service:

Then they have to be patient?


I mean that's nice, but... it's only going to save time on specific projects. An LTT video render is likely not one, because just uploading the 100GB or more of source footage to the remote machine is going to take more time than rendering locally.

And what makes this different from AWS? or any cloud computing service at all? I can rent a gigantic P2 instance from amazon for less than $10 hour and get my ML or dictionary brute force complete much faster than any of those. As for video production goes, you will be limited by your network connection and this pretty much makes it useless for them.

y'all need to poop more often.
