Big and Ugly Rendering Project is a non-commercial distributed computing project using the BOINC framework that is now in hibernation.
It was under development to work as a publicly distributed system for the rendering of 3D graphics and, among other short animations, rendered Big Buck Bunny.
BOINC volunteers that contributed CPU cycles were individually acknowledged in the end credits. We were asked whether we wanted our real names or our BOINC user names listed.
End Credits wrote:A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO All of the collaborative online renderfarm contributors...

Hey man, thank you so much for posting this here! While it may sound unusual considering my age, I've been a big fan of the Big Buck Bunny ever since it appeared on screens! I must admit that I've never heard of this BOINC thing before, but it looks very interesting indeed. How much time did you spend creating it? I'm a beginner in 3D graphics, and I'm always fascinated when I spot projects of this quality. Thanks for inspiring me! I will try to create something myself as soon as I get my computer back from the PC data recovery service. Cheers!

Working with distributed systems to render 3D graphics can be challenging. There are a lot of factors to consider, such as latency and bandwidth. But with careful planning and execution, it is possible to create a system that is both fast and efficient. I see you did a great job, and I am surprised by the quality of your work. I recommend you post your work on https://forgehub.net
, and maybe you will find a team to work on better projects and make more money. Also, there you can find a lot of useful software for you.
