PipelineFX Introduces Run-Time Path Translation for Qube!Automates Render Farm Path Translation Across Platforms for Film, Broadcast, Post, VFX, and Education Companies (February 05, 2013) Los Angeles, CA (February 5, 2013) ? If your render farm is all Windows, and your desktops are all OSX and/or Linux, the process of getting your work rendered is going to require some workarounds. Unless you are running PipelineFX?s Qube!, which starting today, now includes built-in Run-Time Path Translation (RTPT) that automates this formerly time-consuming process across platforms. No more path entries before rendering, one step closer to full utilization. Through a centrally managed dispatch, RTPT helps Qube! users manage simultaneous cross-platform rendering without defining remote worker paths. Traditionally in a mixed operating system environment, it has been difficult to send a render job created on one OS to another due to the difference in the way each operating system described network paths. Before RTPT, this impediment resulted in idle machines and lost time; today, studios can use this feature to maximize their nightly utilization rates by finally including every variant OS in their after-hours render assignments. ?100 percent utilization is a doorway to more money for a production studio,? said Richard Lewis, CEO of PipelineFX. ?However, maximizing render pipeline throughput means utilizing every machine available, regardless of the operating system. Qube!?s new Run-Time Path Translation gives customers that maximum throughput with an extreme amount of flexibility.?
