Zync Render, part of Google Cloud Platform (GCP), is our cloud-hosted rendering platform that helps visual effects and animation studios realize their creative vision. Zync Render has helped render everything from major Hollywood feature films and TV advertising to brand design.
As it’s our mission to continue to enable the users behind these projects to create visually stunning content, we’ve spent the last several months optimizing our core engineering infrastructure. We’re excited to launch Zync version 2.0 on GCP. This consists of a complete Google-native rewrite of the application, providing benefits such as faster job start-up time, increased compute scalability, and several other new features that users have identified as critical to workflows.
Zync also now offers up to 48,000 CPU rendering cores, allowing even the largest jobs to compute quickly and efficiently. Additionally, we’ve implemented the ability to set usage quotas on a per-site, per-project and per-user basis, giving more control to larger organizations with multiple locations and artists. Here’s a look at Zync user quotas:
