PipelineFX to Exhibit at Siggraph 2010New major release v6.0 with "Smart Farming" technology (July 21, 2010)
PipelineFX will demonstrate version 6.0 of their Qube! render farm management software which incorporates "Smart Farming" technology. "Smart Farming" describes a system for render farm management that delivers the power of pipeline data through integrated charting and reporting, automates labor intensive render farm processes, and integrates with other digital media infrastructure packages. The concept was developed after an extensive product validation process with customers across digital media verticals in major markets around the world.
Qube! 6.0 includes integrated charting, auto-render wrangling, simplified submissions, automated movie generation, job ETA predication and integration with Tweak Software and Shotgun Software products.
Shotgun Software, makers of Shotgun, a customizable web-based project management and collaboration system, and Tweak Software, makers of RV, the next generation image and sequence viewer for VFX and animation artists will be sharing booth space and demonstrating integration between Qube!, RV and Shotgun.
"Our clients are telling us they they would prefer to be investing in the parts of their pipeline that give them a competitive advantage instead of re-inventing common toolsets," said Don Parker, Co-Founder and CEO of Shotgun Software. "Just like Tweak and PipelineFX, we have worked with many pipelines over the years and have begun to identify patterns and best practices for integrated tools that provide huge value. This initial collaboration aims to deliver some of that value to our clients and jump start a discussion about where we should be headed next."
"Tweak, Shotgun and PipelineFX are part of a new generation of software companies who got their start working inside leading VFX and animation studios," said Seth Rosenthal, co-founder of Tweak Software. "We know how to create flexible tools for high-end production environments and we are making our software work together so that studios can focus on making pictures rather than on managing infrastructure.
