|Did you know that you can create
your own movie at Network.com?
Yes, that's right! The popular frame rendering software, Blender, is currently available from Network.com Application Catalog. Blender offers full functionality for modeling, rendering, animation, post-production, creation and playback of interactive 3D content with the singular benefits of cross-platform operability and a download file size of less than 2.5MB.
However, if you are not using Blender in a parallel computing environment, it takes literally hours to create the frames that will make up your movie. The version of Blender available from the Network.com Application Catalog can run simultaneously on multiple CPUs in the Sun Grid Compute Utility environment, so you get your frames rendered in orders of magnitude faster. And at $1/CPU-hr, it is very affordable not only for professional artists, but also to occasional hobbyists. Check it out to create 3D visualizations, stills as well as broadcast quality video at Network.com.
