Updated jobtype brings the power of Dynamic Allocation to Maya 2009

Honolulu, HI ? November 25, 2008 ? PipelineFX, makers of Qube!?, the leading render farm management software for film and post production, game development, and digital media education around the world, today announced that it has released an updated and enhanced interface to Autodesk Maya.

The Qube! Maya 2009 interface has been updated to support the latest release. Using the integrated plug-in for Maya 2009, users can easily submit jobs into the render queue and take advantage of Qube!'s dynamic allocation technology. Dynamic allocation maximizes render throughput by loading the application and scene file only once, and then sending single frames to each render host until the job is complete. Faster hosts finish first and are dispatched another frame. All without having to re-load the application and the scene file. Using dynamic allocation with Maya 2009 also allows users to scale up or down the number of render hosts allocated to a job on the fly.

"Autodesk continues to improve their core 3D applications and we are committed to timely releases of compatible interfaces to Qube!," said Troy Brooks, CEO of PipelineFX. ?Qube!'s Dynamic Allocation technology makes a tremendous difference in the overall throughput of a render farm so this is an important release for Maya users.?

The Maya 2009 jobtype can be downloaded by customers currently under support directly from the PipelineFX ftp server.
