Your Concierge Render Dashboard

Upon successful login, your Concierge Render Dashboard will show your current active jobs, any recently completed jobs, pertinent platform updates and news, and your current credit balance. This is a great screen to quickly see the status of your active and recent renders.

Uploading and Launching Your First Render

To start your first render, click on the Upload / Launch Renders menu item under the File Manager menu tab.

The Concierge Transfer upload application on the File Manager page is made to accept both single file uploads as well as uploading an entire directory. Choose the appropriate type of upload Upload files or Upload folder and browse to your item. The Concierge Transfer upload application is built to handle projects small and large, all with the ability to resume a transfer if your internet connection stalls or is extremely slow. If your upload is interrupted, simply restart the same file or folder and Concierge will pick up where you left off.

Once your file is uploaded, the Concierge Render system will automatically perform "Analysis" on your file. This is to ensure that your file uploaded correctly, and will warn of any missing linked assets that may not have been correctly included with the file.

To launch the render, click on the button labeled Actions in the file table, and Launch Render.

The Launch Render form will be auto-populated with the information contained in the render file, and is ready for you to select your options. When running your first render, it is suggested to always run a Preview render to make sure the output is as expected, plus it's free!

Once your render is successfully launched, browse to the Job Manager page to track and download your render output.

Watching Your Render Progress

The Job Manager and Dashboard pages have links to your current, recent and historic job pages. On these pages you can view helpful information like the cost of the render, total time to render, in addition to the rendered output from the job. If for any reason you need to cancel a job during the render process, clicking the Cancel button on the job page will stop the current render process.
