Anyone here ever use GPUbox web service

I’ve been trying to set this thing up for the past hour and am utterly frustrated. Has anyone else here tried to use this service? This has to be one of the most complicated processes I’ve ever seen… or am I just doing something wrong?


I finally got this thing up and running after close to 3 hours of setup time just to find out that they are using version 2.71 of Blender which will not render my project because that version does not do SSS on GPU so I just wasted $18 on GPUbox plus the cost to run those Amazon nodes along with 3 hours of my day. I’m pretty pissed off right now. Their website says cycles rendering up to 2.72.

VERY frustrating!!
