Their website does say that you can pay per image at $1 per image. I am in the opposite boat though. I could see this having a very significant effect on photogrammetry but I would need to process a few thousand images at a time which would not be very feasible with their current pricing model
To the developers. A very promising piece of software for a VFX supervisor like me. BUT, please reconsider your pricing tiers and introduce a per-image price. We are a pretty large facility, but I can only imagine needing about 1-10 images a month at the very most. It's like HDRI's - we buy them all the time, one at a time. They need to be individually billed so a producer can charge them against a particular job.
Your software needs to run faster. It performs tasks that need to get done sooner, not later including big data analytics, image analysis, time-critical financial analysis, and simulations. Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 is a software development suite that helps boost application performance by taking advantage of the ever-increasing processor core count and vector register width available in Intel® Xeon® processors, Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors and compatible processors.
Performance Awaits Your Application
As processors evolve, it is becoming more and more critical to both vectorize (use AVX or SIMD instructions) and thread software to realize the full performance potential of the processor. In some cases, code that is vectorized and threaded can be more than 175X faster than unthreaded / unvectorized code and about 7X faster than code that is only threaded or vectorized. And that gap is growing with every new processor generation.
Optimized Tools to Build Fast Code
Boost your applications performance with Intel® C++ Compiler and Intel® Fortran Compiler for Windows*, Linux* and OS X*. The built-in OpenMP* and Intel® Cilk Plus parallel models combined with performance libraries simplify the implementation of fast, parallel code.
