PipelineFX have chosen SIGGRAPH 2014 to launch new, more affordable Qube! licensing for the design community (we assume – only the US pricing has been confirmed so far).
As PipelineFX’s press team explain, “the ‘Qube! Designer’ package will drop Qube! Worker licence prices for design firms running one render job per host” – including licences that are part of a one year subscription (as long as you have a minimum of 5 seats). This makes Qube! Designer “nearly half the price of competitive solutions”.
The version of Qube! included is fully featured and intended for designers who mostly use 3ds Max and After Effects.
“This seems great for any companies who have older equipment they might want to use for rendering, but who find the price of licensing a farm too high,” said our 3D specialist, Josh Mace. “It also means companies who only use 3ds Max or After Effects won’t be paying the full price for features they will most likely never use.”
To find out more about Qube! Designer (and are lucky enough to be going to SIGGRAPH), PipelineFX are holding a render management social at the Tap & Barrel next door to the convention centre from 5-7pm on 13th August.
