This week it was announced that PipelineFX, the world’s leader in render farm management solutions, is bringing VRED batch render support to their flagship product, Qube! With the ability to leverage real-time clusters for animation rendering, both automotive and industrial design users will experience greater efficiency while creating prototype and marketing materials. PipelineFX will be demonstrating this new technology at Autodesk University, December 2-4 in booth #78.
Render times are a hurdle that has plagued designers since the advent of computer-based modeling. As the first render management software to support VRED, Qube! offers an optimized path from trusted visualization package to the final frame. With API support, users can easily write pre and post scripts that Qube! will automatically run during jobs, making it easier to build VRED support into a pre-existing design or graphics pipeline.
This new capability began with an Autodesk request for VRED batch render support for two of North America’s largest auto manufacturers. Since many of PipelineFX’s automotive clients use VRED for real-time visualization and Qube! to manage Alias AutoStudio renders, an optimized solution for frame-based animations made a lot of sense.
“Qube! was created to make life simpler. Less maintenance and more automation lets artists focus on their work,” said Richard Lewis, CEO of PipelineFX. “Strengthening the bonds between a leading visualization design product and a tool that helps them get those visualizations done faster is a time-saver that will continue to pay off for our customers.”
Design firms can also benefit from the new “Qube! Designer” licensing option, which drops prices to $100 per server. Qube! Designer is a fully functional version of Qube! that was created to address the render farm management needs of most design firms.
At Autodesk University, PipelineFX will also be demonstrating Qube!’s new support of SketchUp renders, its 3ds Max integration and the latest version of the software, Qube! 6.6. To schedule meetings with PipelineFX during Autodesk University, please contact: [email protected].
