+ 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 Vancouver-based Rainmaker Animation has integrated Qube! to handle the rendering demands for their busy production schedule.
Rainmaker Animation currently has three direct to DVD productions, and a new feature film, Escape From Planet Earth, in the studio. “With the company expanding, we have many overlapping high volume productions,” said Martin Kumor, Head of Production Technology at Rainmaker Animation. “Our render farm is an essential part of our production, and is integrated into two production pipelines, running XSI®, Maya®, Mental Ray®, Shake®, and many custom jobs. When we decided to upgrade our render manager, we needed a robust and reliable product to handle our production needs. We spent a considerable amount of time looking at different alternatives, and Qube! has been by far the best render manager we have seen. The advanced architecture combined with Python support, and easy-to-use customizable interface make it a fantastic product,” said Kumor.
