RenderGarden has been discontinued. Mekajiki, the developer of RenderGarden, closed down the company.
Due to a number of factors we have decided to wind down Mekajiki Inc. The latest version of Adobe After Effects has added native multi-frame rendering (MFR) which obsoletes RenderGarden’s Hyperthreaded Rendering functionality. Though RenderGarden is still a viable solution for setting up an After Effects render farm, it never had the functionality found in a professional render queue (that’s why it’s just a Garden and not a Farm). With the recent announcement by Amazon’s Thinkbox team, their Deadline render queue is now free of charge and a much better solution than RenderGarden for our customers.
All Mekajiki tools will be available on the Mekajiki website free of charge without support in the coming days, and the source code for RenderGarden and Boardfish will be available through an open-source project in the near future. We hope you found our tools as helpful as we do, and thank you for your patronage and support.Matt Silverman, Mekajiki
