Render Output Rates

Our pay as you go pricing lets you pay for each rendered video with no long-term commitments or upfront payments. You can increase or decrease your render Output depending on the demands of your application and only pay the specific rate. Output rates only depend on the duration and resolution of the content that you output. Each output stream or file is billed accurate to seconds with no rounding up.

Rendering Options

Video Size

You are being charged according to the duration and resolution of the videos you create. For example, a video that lasts 2 minutes costs twice as much as videos that lasts 1 minute. All quoted prices are based on an output size of up to 640x360 (Standard Definition, SD). A 1-minute video with an output size of 1280x720 (HD) will be counted as 2 minutes of standard definition (SD) and a 1-minute High definition (Full HD) video will count as four minutes.

up to 640x360 up to 960x540 up to 1280x720 up to 1920x1080
1 minute counted as 1 minute 1.5 minutes 2 minutes 4 minutes

Parallel Render Requests (Distributed Rendering)

For longer and/or more complex dynamic movies you can distribute the render load onto several servers in order to achieve shorter rendering times. Each server will render a piece of the video and all pieces will then be stiched together. For each render request, you can specify how many servers to use. The more servers you use the faster your video will render.

Single Frame Requests

Single image output is priced as 1 second of 640x360 video, independent of resolution.

Dedicated Hosting

For customers with specific security, regulatory and compliance requirements, we offer to render your dynamic videos on Dedicated Instances. Dedicated Instances are isolated from all other accounts. For pricing and more information please contact us.
