3DS MAX Render Farm
Not every 3DS MAX user has a powerful PC that will easily render their projects. Upgrading hardware is costly and often turns into a chase after the newest developments, as CPU power keeps on growing each year. It is much cheaper and more convenient to use a 3DS MAX render farm like Megarender.
Cloud rendering allows you to upload your project to a render farm through an accessible interface so you don’t have to physically connect to the farm computers at their location. Our service shows all your uploaded files, lets you check the settings of your scenes, launch tasks remotely, and download the results.
At Megarender 3DS MAX render farm, we use Threadrippers 3990X, some of the most powerful processors existing today. They are approximately 10 times more powerful than an average modern CPU. For projects done in Corona and 3DS MAX our render farm can provide 256 GB of RAM, which is crucial for exterior scenes and in animation.
How to start rendering online
So you’ve created your project in 3DS MAX and network rendering is something you want to try. Use our Megarender plugin to properly pack your scene. It collects all the assets (like textures and sequences) and archives them together with the .max file. Using the plugin also guarantees that your project will open and run correctly on our 3DS MAX render farm. Uploading big scenes (containing tens of millions of polygons, hi-res textures or cache files for physics simulations) may take a very long time and should be done through an ftp-client. Contact our support team for more information about how it can be done.

Download plugin and archive your project
Upload it in Project Manager
Check the settings
While the rendering is in progress, you will be able to see the preview and an approximation of the time it will take to finish. You will only be charged after the image is finished, then you can download the result in the Project Manager.
Project cost calculator
How to use the calculator
The render cost calculator is designed to help you understand the cost of your project.
Steps to get your result:
- Based on the number of frames you want to render, please select the Animation or Single frame option. We recommend selecting the Animation option only if you want to render more than 30 frames within the same project.
- Enter the number of frames and average render time per frame at your computer.
- Specify your hardware: your CPU’s brand and model or the Cinebench score (multiprocessor) of your CPU. If your processor is overclocked, please select use overclocking mode and fill in the actual CPU frequency.
- Choose currency.
- Press the Calculate button to get your project cost estimation. Calculation will take several seconds.
- Sign up or sign in to the service to launch your project

Our customers love what we do
I used your render farm because my computer estimated a rendering time of 25 hours – this is just too much. It took only 57 minutes with your farm, I am delighted! I shared my experience at Ilya Izotov’s School, and some of my classmates have already tried your online service and liked it. Thank you!
Thank you for this easy-to-use, fast rendering platform. We’ve worked with Megarender before and have been satisfied with the results each time. You can launch your projects on your own, and their fast tech support will help you solve any questions, 24/7.
Thank you, you’ve definitely created the best render farm for our needs.
