LOS ANGELES and VANCOUVER, B.C. — Aug 4, 2011 — Render Rocket LLC, an advanced cloud-based rendering services company, and Thinware Media Ltd., the developers of the StudioCAP workflow automation and asset management solution for animation studios, announced today a new strategic partnership and technology integration that will enable animation studios to fully automate the process of rendering in the cloud.
StudioCAP (CAP=Computer Aided Production) is a completely new workflow automation and asset management solution for animation studios. This cloud-based system enables studios to more efficiently store, track, and move 2D and 3D CGI (computer generated image) assets through the creation process without having to install and manage a costly IT infrastructure to do so. Render Rocket is a cloud-based, high-end rendering service that provides professional-grade rendering power on-demand to any 2D or 3D production team regardless of its size or location.
Together, StudioCAP and Render Rocket will enable studios to manage their files more effectively, and to automatically trigger a render job by simply submitting an image or shot after an artist has completed it. This will immediately package and send all the files to Render Rocket for rendering. Render Rocket will quickly return the files to StudioCAP fully rendered. The entire process not only automates rendering for artists, it alleviates the need for studios to purchase and maintain dedicated file servers and rendering machines, since both StudioCAP and Render Rocket operate in the cloud.
“We are very excited that Ruben and his team are onboard with Thinware Media,” said Mark Rocchio, CEO of Thinware Media Ltd. “Render Rocket is a well-established, easy-to-use rendering solution that works seamlessly with StudioCAP, and this will undoubtedly simplify how our customers take content from concept to final render.”
Ruben Perez, CEO of Render Rocket, added: “StudioCAP is the perfect complement to our cloud-based rendering solution. Now studios of all sizes can create content more efficiently, manage projects and assets more efficiently, and render more efficiently – all within the cloud and without massive capital investment. This partnership has the potential to re-define how all types of media are produced.”
