PipelineFX Joins Partners at SIGGRAPH

PipelineFX, makers of Qube! renderfarm management software for film production, game development, and digital media education, is exhibiting in Booth 337 along with a variety of leading industry partners, including Nvidia, Iridas, South Paw, Digits ‘n art, and Full Sail.

Nvidia Corporation is showing its new animated short film, The Plush Life, in the PipelineFX booth and at the Gelato User Group meeting. The film was rendered entirely with Nvidia’s Gelato renderer and Qube! renderfarm management software.

Iridas’ FrameCycler is a leader in uncompressed playback of frame-based and video file formats at SD, HD, 2K, and higher resolutions. FrameCycler can be integrated with Qube! for automated daily creation as a part of the render pipeline, accelerating the iteration of animation and visual effects work.
South Paw’s Tactic asset-management software integrates with Qube! via Qube!’s Python API for an asset/render management pipeline. When an asset is revised and checked in, the integrated system can automatically re-render the scene files containing the changed asset.
Digits ‘n art’s 3Delight is a fast, high-quality, Pixar RenderMan-compliant renderer designed to produce photorealistic images in demanding production environments. Using the PipelineFX MTOR interface for Maya, 3Delight is a cost-effective rendering solution that can be managed cross-platform with Qube!.
Full Sail Real World Education is a nationally accredited, private, co-educational college offering extensive training and education in entertainment media production and entertainment technology. Student work rendered using Qube! will be on display in the PipelineFX booth and student representatives will be on hand to answer questions and discuss their program.
