Honolulu, HI ? February 5, 2008 ? 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 Hong Kong-headquartered Imagi Studios has chosen Qube! as their facilities render manager to handle the increase in rendering to support upcoming feature film projects.

Imagi International Holdings Limited (?Imagi?) is a listed company (Stock Code 585) on the main board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Imagi?s principal business is the development and production of computer graphics (?CG?) animated theatrical feature films. Imagi?s first theatrical movie TMNT was released in March 2007, opening #1 in U.S. box office revenue, only the third time in history that an Asian-made film has achieved that honor.   

Imagi is currently making two animated feature films, Gatchaman and Astro Boy. ?Imagi is a leading animation house that utilizes a host of render tools and techniques,? said Yan Chen, Lead CG Supervisor on Astro Boy at Imagi.  ?Qube! gives us the flexibility and high performance that is needed in such a diverse and dynamic work environment.? 

?Imagi required a more powerful and flexible render farm management system for their next-generation CG feature film,? said Troy Brooks, CEO of PipelineFX. ?Qube! gives Imagi an unparalleled level of control ? an essential competitive advantage for a high-end animation studio.?
