Surprised no one else has pointed this one out yet…
Called BURP ( or Big Ugly Rendering Project) it’s site is here…
It’s in alpha stage and it’s aims are (quoting)
BURP aims to develop a publicly distributed system for rendering 3D animations.
Currently this is a pre-alpha project which means that you cannot yet upload your own animation for rendering. Periodically we are doing testanimations - sometimes you will not be able to contact the schedulers.
Haven’t signed up and dont think I’ll intend to but just to pointout to all.
