Mark IV Animation Studios Selects Qube! for Medical and Architectural Render Management

Full-service animation studio in Southern India Adopts Best-in-Class Technologies


Honolulu, HI February 26, 2007 PipelineFX, makers of Qube! software, the leading render farm management software for film production, game development, and digital media education around the world, today announced that Mark IV Animation Studios has chosen Qube! to manage their 3D pipeline, including rendering content created in 3DS Max®, Maya® and SOFTIMAGE®|XSI®.

Headquartered in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, South India, Mark IV Animation specializes in Medical & Scientific Animation & Architectural Visualization. Infrastructure at Mark IV Animation is home to some of the best brands in hardware and software including Sun, HP, Apple, 3DS Max, Maya and SOFTIMAGE|XSI, and now including Qube!.

?Working with the best names in animation infrastructure adds to our credibility as a reliable partner who can deliver consistent quality work, said Mr.Vikram Visvanathan, Technical Director at Mark IV Animation. ?With many different 3D applications, we needed a render manager that could support all of our tools seamlessly. After researching the available render farm management software packages, we chose Qube! as the most stable, scalable and easy to use solution. We really like the job submission plug-ins to our 3D software so our artists can submit jobs from within their Maya, XSI or 3DS Max session without launching an external program. This keeps our artists more productive and reduces the learning curve.

?Mark IV is a good example of how Qube! as a software is now becoming the first choice for studios worldwide, said Vivek Malhotra of F/X Graphics. ?They have identified Qube! as their choice of render manager as they know it will scale up perfectly when they expand in the coming months.

?We are seeing huge growth in the Indian animation market, said Troy Brooks, CEO of PipelineFX. ?Through partnerships with U.S studios and the focus on digital media education, India is producing some very competitive animation companies. F/X Graphics has done a great job working with the leading animation studios in India and helping them specify and build-out their render pipelines. We are pleased to welcome Mark IV Animation as a Qube! customer and look forward to supporting them to future success.
