Title: Render Farm Naming Contest
Post by: 3D Off the Page on July 08, 2014, 03:36:48 am
Hello everyone,

We are getting close to going live with our new KeyShot render farm website and are looking for help naming our two render farms.  We are offering (2) hours of free render time to the person who's suggestion is used. 

Let us know if you have any cool ideas or if you really like a posted suggestion.

Good luck!!

Steve

Sorry for the confusion.  Our website will be www.3dotp.com.  We are looking to give each of the farms it's own name (instead of "Farm 1" and "Farm 2").

Ah, in that case:

FrameRipper & MegaQueue

Sounds like metal bands... or monster trucks. ;D

OR...

KeyShot Lightspeed & KeyShot Hyperspeed

Or the obvious- "Old McDonald 1", "Old McDonald 2", etc.  Of course some of you guys may be too young to know what the heck I'm referring to!

How about :

JensenRender and TeagerRender...

After the people who created the software you are supporting with your render farm :)

Nice one Metal Master!

I suggest Huginn and Muninn. The ravens of Odin from the Norse mythology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huginn_and_Muninn

How about naming the farms after harvesting equipment?

Thresher and Reaper

or

Scythe and Sickle

We like the farming equipment tie-in.  Hoping that this is popular and that we will add additional farms in the future so whatever we pick will need to have more options available.

Considering a render farm is a huge collection of cores, and you have several of them...
I suggest an analogy of cosmology.

Cores fuel rendering vs. stars fuel life
Cores are clustered in farms vs. stars are clustered in galaxies
etc.

"Galactic power for your render jobs."
Farm #1: Andromeda
Farm #2: Sombrero

There are plenty of galaxies  (http://www.space.com/25303-how-many-galaxies-are-in-the-universe.html)-small and large- to choose from. :P
