File Prep Checklist

  • Golem recognizes if you are using a .blend and automatically assigns your task to the correct software. If you are rendering heavy tasks on Golem please make sure that you share/provide Golem with RAM (more than 8GB may be needed) to properly verify a task.
  • Golem supports all official Blender engines (Blender Render, Cycles Render) and uses settings from your .blend file. In the near future we are going to add samples for Cycles, but for now you should set your prefered samples amount inside Blender before adding a Task.
  • Scene files should be saved in .blend format - version 2.79
  • If you are going to use additional assets you should include the main .blend file next to the assets folder. Also make sure that inside the scene all paths are correctly linked and that you use relative paths.
  • Please be sure to include all the assets before uploading a Task to Golem.
  • Ensure that your scene does not have any random objects. You can turn off “random” in your scene or prebake elements if needed before adding them to Golem and attach cache files to the assets folder.
  • You should also use prebaking in case of having physical simulation in your scene (like fire, water, complicated glass, Volumetric lighting...) and attach cache files to the assets folder accordingly.
  • We do not support compositing directly in this current Golem version.
  • If you are using FreeStyle brush modifiers that have randomly distributed values your scene may be rejected on verification.
  • We are in the process of plugin support research, so if you have any issues, reach out to our team via chat or email below.
  • Remember that we are here to help you, so if you are not sure about something just ask us on our Rocket Chat at chat.golem.network or by email at contact@golem.network
