Digital media software company PipelineFX announced that its render farm management system software Qube software now supports the Windows Vista operating system.
With the update, Windows Vista users can now run the Qube Worker, acting as a dedicated render host or scheduling to become a render host in off-hours. They can also run Qube GUI and submit, modify, and manage jobs from their desktop.
Offering a render farm management system for film, post production, game development, and digital media education, PipelineFX says that Qube "maximizes job throughput and accelerates the millions of computational tasks that occur during the graphics rendering and software build processes."
Qube has custom pipelines for applications like Autodesk 3ds Max, Audodesk Maya, Nuke Softimage XSI, Adobe AfterEffects, Pixar's RenderMan, and more. The software operates in Linux, Windows, and Mac OSX environments.
Major film and game studios such as Electronic Arts, Disney Interactive Studios, South Park Studios, Imagi, and more currently employ Qube.
"We are seeing an increase in customers around the world moving to Windows Vista for their artists and students desktop machines," says PipelineFX CEO Troy Brooks. "We are committed to supporting all the major releases of Windows operating systems and continue to partner closely with Microsoft."
