RocketComp for Maya Revolutionizes VFX Compositing Workflows

Released by Dover Studios co-founder Andrew Hazelden, Autodesk Maya plug-in RocketComp instantly connects Maya to 10 of the most popular desktop compositing applications in use today. 

HALIFAX, NS -- Dover Studios co-founder Andrew Hazelden has released a new Maya plug-in called RocketComp, which instantly connects Autodesk Maya to 10 of the most popular desktop compositing applications in use today. With a single click, your entire Maya scene is analyzed and a new compositing project file is created containing all of your rendered footage.

The new compositing project contains references to all of the rendered images generated by your Maya scene, along with additional details like the sequence duration, resolution of the imagery, active image planes, render layer names, and render layer transfer modes.

RocketComp finally eliminates the tedious and repetitive task of creating a new composite each time you render a Maya scene. After using RocketComp for even a single day, it will forever change the way you work.
