LOS ANGELES — BAFTA- and multi-award-winning production studio Jellyfish in London has launched a subsidiary business called RenderWise. Responding to the obstacles faced when met with time-sensitive demands, RenderWise offers cloud hybrid rendering and virtual studio solutions for VFX and animation applications.
Already used on a number of Jellyfish’s projects, RenderWise’s cloud hybrid rendering solution dramatically improves and streamlines VFX and animation studios’ workflows. The new solution enables studios to take on a more flexible approach to how they work, delivering a true hybrid rendering solution, fully integrated into an existing render farm and pipeline management.
Offering both consultancy services and setup, the new solution utilizes Microsoft Azure, harnessing the cloud to create an adaptable environment allowing VFX studios to work remotely and on demand. The solution drastically increases speed of provisioning, hyper-scaling and seamless burst rendering to the cloud. Studios migrating to the hybrid cloud solution can adopt an Opex pricing structure rather than Capex, with all system administration costs being outsourced to Microsoft Azure, further saving studios money on cooling outlay and running on-premises hardware.
