Your questions, explained

Application and vetting process

Rendering professionals who know 3D visualization software and plugins inside out and have at least 3 years of experience working with clients, managing expectations, and meeting deadlines. If you are a 3D modeler, texturing artist, lighting artist, photoshop specialist, full-stack visualizer or a owner/lead artist of a studio with deep knowledge of architecture and interior design, we want to hear from you.

Senior rendering artists and Architects can apply.
We understand a few senior rendering artists wish to retire from hardcore 3d rendering to stress free job. Working on 3D software for more than a decade are a real strain physically and mentally. That is why we have created this role which is an essential to help both artist and clients.

You will be available online, chat with clients, going further with zoom meetings for complex projects, understand the project requirement, raise estimates and get the right available artist from our platform. Though artists will take care of the project from the moment they enter you will still be in the loop to have a quality check and manage the project from start till end.

Apart from this you will organize community activities for artists to engage them with some new leanings. These community meetings are what we really want. If you are good at it we prefer you. 

You have to first submit an online application form to demonstrate your past experience and previous work references. You will then go through a behavioral interview & live review of one of your project workspace. This is then followed by a series of paid test projects to understand your workflow. Each stage of the process must be passed in order to proceed to the next.

Typically within 3-5 business days, depending on the number of applications received.

Renderby is a premium artists platform. To ensure our quality standards are being met (or exceeded) at all times we vet every single expert on the platform for both quality of render and quality of communication. Our bar is high, but we’re sure so is yours!

Aside from providing great references to previous work, it’s really important to demonstrate that you’re motivated to join the Renderby community and why. Be sure to proofread your application before submitting it. Spelling and grammar errors can prevent your application from being approved to the next stage.

Yes, we welcome applicants to re-apply after 12 months of not passing. This will give you time to improve and increase your chances of passing the next time.

Projects and payments

After a client request for renderings on Renderby, you will be contacted by one of our creative directors with the project brief. If the request appears to be something you’re comfortable assisting with and are able to complete with great quality results, then you are welcome to begin engaging on it. All communications are through a renderby workspace provided to you.

We ask all new joiners to limit themselves to 2 max projects for your first 45 days (trial period for all new joiners). After your trial is complete and we've witnessed your expertise, we may increase this limit to 5. You are expected to always manage your time and client expectations with regards to deadlines. Finding projects is not hard, but managing them can become challenging with too many simultaneous open projects. If you’re able to comfortably manage more than 5 projects, let us know and we can look into increasing this on a per-artist basis.

Yes, you may work with other experts on Renderby to complete projects. We refer to this as Renderby Teams and we provide full details on how this works once you are in.

Renderby uses estimates instead of bids. We provide 3 estimates each for an expert, midlevel and entry level artist. The client makes a choice in regards with his budget and requirements. This prevents the ‘race-to-the-bottom’ challenge found on other freelance platforms and also give clients a piece of mind by not overwhelming with hundred estimates for one project. It isn’t sensible 100 artists spend time on quoting for the same project too, instead we want you to concentrate on rendering. We take care of the rest.

Renderby is unlike any other freelancer network in the world. Not only do we solve the ‘race to the bottom’ challenge by using estimates instead of bids, we also focus 100% on 3D Visualization specific projects. This allows you to focus on what you do best. Instead of just connecting the artists and clients our creative directors make this platform standout by the extraordinary service they provide by managing the project from start till the end.
Another advantage of Renderby that nobody else has, is our expert community. This is the most amazing place for rendering artists to connect with like-minded people, ask questions, get help, and make lasting friendships. We have our own internal socializing network.

Renderby earns money by charging clients a service fee of 17.5% to all estimates submitted and by charging artists a platform fee which is 20%. For example, if project estimate is $100, the client will pay $112.50 and upon project completion, the artist will earn $80. Your payment gateway (YourBank/PayPal/Payoneer) may charge a small fee depending on your location. Check their websites to determine which option is most cost-effective for you. See how to reduce the platform fee from 20% to 15%

This fee helps us to

  • Market renderby around the world and find projects for you.
  • Be available 24/7 to discuss with clients about the project and quote.
  • Provide you support, secure payments, fraud protection and ofcource a small profit to run the business.

In regards with the split artists make 80% of the project estimate.

There are no limits to how much you can earn on Renderby. However, please keep in mind that you must be willing to put in the effort and work to earn money on Renderby. If you’re looking for proxy employment or shortcuts to earn money without putting in your effort, you will not find success. We will supply you with the tools, resources and clients you need to be successful.

In regards with the split creative directors make 7.5% of the project estimate.

The split might seam relatively low when compared to an artist, but on whole its high. For example a creative director can handle 20 artists/projects at a time. So 7.5% from 20 projects is what you will make. 

After a project is approved by the client, the money held with us is instantly transferred to your PayPal/Payoneer account, minus applicable fees. You may then make a withdrawal at any time you wish. PayPal/Payoneer withdrawals are typically processed within 24 hours during Monday – Friday. Bank Wire withdrawals are typically processed within 5 business days.
