4. Creator performs user-side job estimation
Creators are able to generate a cost estimate for a render by providing their local hardware’s OctaneBench (OB) score and the time it takes to render one frame before sending the render job out to the network. This is to avoid final job cost exceeding the amount of tokens that were temporarily locked in a smart contract. It is important to note that this is just an estimate, as there are often significant frame to frame disparities in rendering work that cannot be projected prior to completing rendering work.
