  8. Make sure all the render settings are correct.
  9. Export the scene to YellowDog using the YellowDog Plugin.

  10. Add some servers to your account by pressing Add Servers. You’ll need to add some billing details at this point to make sure the invoices are correct.
  11. Pick the type, the number and how many you need – the calculator can help you with this.
  12. Pay for the servers with a credit or debit card.
  13. Create a new job by pressing New Job and then press Start. Your dedicated render servers will now be started – be patient this may take a few minutes as the servers need to initialised, the software loaded and our benchmarking to finish.

Once the full job is complete, you’ll be emailed a notification.
