Los Angeles, CA – PipelineFX , makers of Qube!, the leading render farm management software for digital media creation, announced today the release of Qube! version 6.4. Along with new tools for smart farming, system supervisors can now access Qube! via their smartphones (MobileView), set priority limits for non-privileged users, and control how much of their workstation will be available to the render farm. All with what often amounts to a single click of their mouse.
"Scalability, stability, and simplicity have always been key drivers in the development of Qube!," said Richard Lewis, CEO of PipelineFX. "Qube! 6.4 breaks new ground in this space, and provides even more features and applications that will put more power into the hands of its operator.”
The promotion of intelligent render farm software affords farm supervisors the power to shape the destiny of their system. An addition like QBLocker, which enables artists to easily add their workstation to the render farm at the CPU core level, or reclaim their workstation when they need all of its resources, maximizes an organization’s rendering power by harnessing every available COU core hour. Qube! 6.4’s new priority limits also follow this line as they give administrators the ability to limit the amount of control an artist or student has around setting task priority. Unnecessary competition between artists and render wranglers is over.
Other Key Additions Include:
"We measure the value of Qube! by how well it addresses the needs of artists and studios,” added Lewis. “We feel confident when we say that there’s nothing ahead of Qube! 6.4 in render management, if you want more time to perfect your art or improve your bottom line.”
