Maxon, the developer of professional 3D modeling, animation and rendering solutions, has announced the immediate availability of usage-based rendering for Cinema 4D and Redshift with leading cloud rendering company, Conductor Technologies. Recently expanding their platform to include GPU support, Conductor provides on-demand metered access to an unlimited number of Cinema 4D and Redshift rendering nodes with per-minute usage and licensing options, with the ability to scale up and down based on project needs.
Conductor is a secure cloud-based platform that enables VFX, VR/AR and animation studios to seamlessly offload rendering and simulation workloads to the public cloud. As the only rendering service that is dynamically scalable to meet the exact needs of even the largest studios, Conductor easily integrates into existing workflows, features an open architecture for customization, provides data insights and can implement controls over usage to ensure budgets and timelines stay on track.
Rendering in the cloud allows artists and studios to expand their rendering capabilities to preview scenes faster, meet deadlines, free up local hardware for other tasks (design, video encoding, or post-production for example) and explore more complex and challenging projects. With Conductor’s multi-cloud platform leveraging both AWS and GCP, studios can scale their compute power cost-effectively with production proven tools and expertise.
“The ability for artists to improve design visualization and generate content in shorter timeframes is critical in today’s content production environment,” said David McGavran, CEO, Maxon. “The easy integration Conductor offers into existing workflows will allow our Cinema 4D and Redshift customers the flexibility to take full advantage of cloud computing power to accelerate turnaround times and deliver greater photorealistic and high-resolution imagery.”
Added Conductor CEO, Mac Moore, “We are thrilled to finally bring the Cinema 4D and Redshift offerings to Conductor. Maxon’s combined focus on ease-of-use and high performance perfectly aligns with what we strive to enable with our cloud platform; near-infinite computing power at the push of a button.”
