500 Additional Render Farm Management Software Licenses to be Used on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Other Blockbuster Films

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

PipelineFX, makers of Qube!, the leading render farm management software for digital media creation, announced today that Beijing VFX firm Base Fx has ordered 500 additional licenses to supplement their growing feature film queue.

After recently wrapping 350 shots on Captain America: The Winter Solider, Asias biggest visual effects studio is already hard at work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Base Fxs four-year history with Qube! has shown them how prioritization and pulling actionable intelligence from the farm (Smart Farming) can drastically change efficiency operations on projects with tight timelines. Moving up to 800 licenses now means more ammo for the cannons.

For years we were assigning frames to nodes manually, which just weighed our pipeline down, said Alex Robin, head of operations at Base Fx. Once Qube! came in, it totally changed the way we manage renders. Our efficiency increased dramatically, and we could scale the business.

Since 2012s Strategic Alliance Agreement with Lucasfilms Industrial Light & Magic, Base Fxs stable of projects has been growing rapidly. The ability to adjust render priorities quickly has been their ace in the hole when working through multiple projects at once, often for a variety of Asian and American studios.

The value of robust render farm management is priceless, added Robin. Equipment is one of our biggest expenditures. Managing those resources efficiently with Qube! has been transformative to our business.
