(November 07, 2006)
DMN Newswire--2006-11-7--PipelineFX, makers of Qube! software, the leading render farm management system for film production, game development, and digital media programs around the world, today announced that Ittina Animation Studios in Bangalore, India has purchased Qube! for management of their render farm as they ramp up production on numerous visual effects and animation projects. 

Started in Febuary 2006, Ittina Animation Studios specializes in character animation but also offers all aspects of CG production services.  Ittina currently has about 120 employees and has grown drastically over the past six months.  Ittina Animation Studios is cultivating the local animation market through training programs and by doing CG production for advertising agencies, film production houses and gaming companies with clients from India and other parts of the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. 

Ittina Animation Studios and its animation school, Takshaa, are headed by Manu Ittina. Ittinas core creative and technological team have extensive prior experience in Hollywood working in various departments on projects such as King Kong, X-men, Madagascar, Shrek 2, and many more. 

 

?We reviewed a lot of software and tools for render management and the main reasons we selected Qube! over other solutions was for its robustness, said Manu Ittina.  ?The other major benefit we saw in Qube! over the competition was that it was very easy to set up and to get working.  Our artists were able to submit and manage jobs within 30 minutes of starting Qube!.  There really were no unnecessarily complex steps required; Qube!s highly intuitive design allows our artists to focus their time on being creative.

?We tested Qube! in many circumstances and we were happy to discover that it was very stable.  With Qube! we were also able to avoid dealing with lots of machine configurations that are often involved with open source solutions, said Manu Ittina.  ?Qube! provides us with an API and a scripting language that helps our technical team optimize and automate it for our pipeline.  Qube! helps administrators to get a good overview of what is happening on the network, and as if those benefits werent enough, Qube!s technical support team is very responsive and they mean it when they say 24 x 7 x 365. 

?PipelineFX is excited to partner with an animation technology leader like Ittina Animation Studios, said Troy Brooks, CEO of PipelineFX.  ?Manu Ittinas commitment to using leading technologies have positioned Ittina Animation Studios to be a serious player in the exploding Indian animation market.
