Arnold is an advanced Monte Carlo ray tracing renderer built for the demands of feature-length animation and visual effects. Originally co-developed with Sony Pictures Imageworks and now their main renderer, Arnold is used at over 300 studios worldwide.
Local Rendering

Arnold is used at over 300 studios worldwide including ILM, Framestore, MPC, The Mill, and Digic Pictures. Notable projects that have implemented the use of Arnold include films such as The Avengers, Gravity, Pacific Rim, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The ray tracing process is hardware intensive and requires a large amount of power, without utilizing a custom built workstation or render farm, you’re losing out on performance. BOXX offers a line of unique, CPU-dense render nodes and workstations that will help you reduce your render times.

Dedicated Rendering

Unlike 3D modeling and animation tasks, rendering your 3D assets is a highly multi-threaded process. The more CPU cores you have in your system (or systems) the better.

Offload Your Rendering! Rendering is a computationally intense task that should be offloaded. The purpose of a workstation is to work and remain productive. Productivity comes to a halt when you tie up your workstation with rendering final frame animation sequences. BOXX offers unique, dedicated desk-side rendering solutions like the renderPRO as well as a complete turnkey render farm. If you rely on GPU rendering our APEXX 4 supports up to 4 full size GPUs and the APEXX 5 supports up to 5 GPUs.
