Cost and time
The render farm "Lacrimas Farm" works on a prepaid basis, which you can find out by calculating the cost on a calculator. We also have a cumulative system of discounts including postpay.
1. Cost and render time calculator
An example of the estimate of cost and time
To calculate the cost of rendering, you can use the calculator on our website. Seconds can be entered in tenths - for example, 0.5 is 30 seconds.It will also show the comparative time on your computer and on the Lacrimas farm. To do this, you need to specify the Octane Bench of your video card. You can see it in the table, or download the benchmark test.
The cost calculator takes into account only the render on the video card, the stages of preparation and saving in each project are different, so it is not possible to take them into account. Therefore, the result of such a calculation is very conditional, but the calculator will show you a general idea of the time and cost of rendering your project. More details about rendering on a farm can be found in the section "Render the project".

A more accurate forecast of cost and time is calculated 20-30 minutes after the start of the render based on the finished part of the frame range. The higher the percentage of the finished render, the more accurate the forecast.
If the cost increased during the rendering process, you have to make an additional payment within 30 minutes. If this is not done, access to the project folder will be disabled. If the final cost of the render turns out to be less than the deposit, then this amount of money remains on your balance for subsequent projects.
2. Making an advance payment
After you have calculated the preliminary cost, you need to reconcile the date and time of the planned render with the manager , announce the cost calculated by the calculator, and make an advance payment.

You can also make an arbitrary deposit and render at any free time for the amount of this deposit.
After receiving an advance payment, the manager will launch your project for rendering, and will show you more accurate forecasts in the process until the end of the render and its cost.
3. The final price of rendering
After the rendering is finished, you receive a notification and a table with the total cost and time of rendering. If the final cost is less than the prepayment, then this amount of money remains on your balance for subsequent projects.
