Here is a great tip to  speed up your downloads for oversees users using Archive Individual Frames option.


“My animation studio is based in Spain and I normally download the single archived files, instead of the individual frames due to the size of the files. But, downloading the archived files was taking longer than expected. So, I asked Rendercore support if there was a faster option of downloading my files.” -Carlos


We recommended that it would best to download the individual frames. In Filezilla’s FTP client, there is an option under the “transfers” section where you can change to download up to 10 files a time. But, Carlos mentioned that he exports exr files and their quite large. We recommended that he use the Archive Individual Frames option that is located in the New Job tab, which will compress the individual frames to a manageable size. -Renderc0re Support Team


“Now when I submit my jobs I always select the Archive Individual Frames option which has increased my overall download rate significantly. I also utilize the 10 transfers at a time allowing me to download in sections rather than downloading one large zip file.” -Carlos


Below Rendercore Support Team  has created step-by-step instructions on how to use the archive option.

To archive the individual frames, just go to the bottom of the New Job tab and under Archive Mode. Scroll down to the Archive Individual Frames option.

Just log into your ftp account and you will be able to see a zip folder within your job folder containing all the archived individual frames. It will be quicker to download the individual archived frames than having to download one archived file.  Also, you don’t have to wait until the job is done to download the zip files, since the frames automatically archive as soon as the frames are done.

Also, in Filezilla, there is an option to change the download transfers settings from 2 to 10.

Just go to Edit -> Settings -> Transfers.
