As anyone in the creative industry knows, one of the pain points for individual creatives is how long it can take to properly render projects. Not only can rendering take an unfortunately long amount of time without a powerful machine, but the process can cause stress on your computer’s hardware. However, there’s a new project working on changing that.
Leonardo Render is a company that set off to solve those problems in the creative industry by giving consumers more options and integrating a blockchain-based decentralized rendering protocol. Rather than putting additional strain on personal computers rendering large projects, Leonardo Render is integrating a distributed network to benefit everyone.
How Leonardo Render Works
Leonardo Render utilizes a network of external graphics processing units (GPUs) that users can access on demand for rendering. Instead of using an under-powered personal GPU within a computer at home or in the office, the platform allows users to access far greater GPU power by going through the network. Consumers can therefore leverage the power of the platform to streamline their creative workflow by cutting down on costly waiting periods on projects. Users can access the network via the easy-to-use desktop application which allows users to select how much processing power they would like to use for a render.
Benefits of a Decentralized Network
Consumers are typically flooded with choices in the market, but oftentimes there aren’t any viable decentralized options to choose from. With Leonardo Render, users can take full advantage of a high power network without being dependent on a single centralized authority.
Because of the decentralized nature of the network, users will never have to send their work off to a third party for rendering. Leonardo Render allows creatives and organizations of any size to scale up their rendering power as needed and on demand. Whether you’re an individual creator or a large company with high processing needs, Leonardo Render leverages decentralization to offer a viable solution for everyone.
With on-demand GPU access, the process is fast, cost-effective, and easy-to-use. Since users are only utilizing the processing power they need at the time of rendering, the remaining network power remains open to handle more rendering projects when not in use. With this model, scaling is no longer a concern for businesses with much larger processing needs.
On top of the advantages that come with a decentralized, scalable network, Leonardo Render has always partnered with Giga Watt to ensure top-notch speeds and prices for all operations from the start. The Leonardo Render network will start with 23,000 GPUs. However, as the network grows and gains usage, that number will organically increase over time.
Moreover, the company has proven experience with growth. One of the key factors distinguishing Leonardo Render from many other blockchain companies is their successful past performance. Before launching a distributed, cloud-based rendering platform to the public, the company has already achieved a functioning infrastructure and is rendering for multiple clients. With their initial partnership and experience in the industry, Leonardo Render is able to offer high performance options for consumers while keeping the process cost-effective.
Bottom Line for Consumers
As the tech industry continues to look for more innovative solutions to various problem areas in the market, a strong shift towards a decentralized approach is occurring. While there are many benefits associated with the shift to decentralization, it’s important to ensure that the process is being done correctly. Leonardo Render will be able to offer cost-effective solutions for both individuals and enterprise clients, but that’s not the only piece of the puzzle that matters.
Along with that, a decentralized rendering platform like Leonardo Render will reduce the risks of intellectual property being stolen and being dependent on a single, centralized entity. Operating on a distributed network means that users will still be able to access the platform and services, even if there is a minor technical difficulty in one portion of the network. Contrast that to large, centralized systems where consumers are wholly dependent on a single company, and the choice for consumers starts to look pretty clear.
