Deadline? Yes, Deadline! YellowDog Integrates with the Leading Compute Management System
YellowDog are celebrating another new addition to their quality render box in the form of an integration with ThinkBox Software’s Deadline, a hassle-free admin and compute management toolkit for Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX based render farms.
The industry-leading management tool is well known for its flexibility and superb user interface, with wide-ranging settings allowing maximum control at all times. Deadline is able to offer a world of options for render farms of all sizes, and supporting over 70 different content creation applications. The scalable, high-volume software solution, mastered by Thinkbox Software, is a comprehensive tool to help animators, 3D artists and studios alike, delivering projects of any size and scale. The integration between YellowDog and Deadline allows studios to access the massive power of YellowDog without changing their render pipeline – meaning that artists can create and ensure production schedules are met without having to change how they work.
Gareth Williams, Founder and Managing Director at YellowDog, said:
“I’m delighted that YellowDog now integrates with the legendary Deadline. It’s a pivotal tool within the rendering industry and one that our customers use. It’s always great when YellowDog can take the stress out of rendering for more 3D studios and artists.”
Deadline 188.8.131.52 is the latest version, including helpful new features and bug fixes, offering options for GPU rendering and the ability to split the load across multiple cards. One of the Deadline attributes is its simplicity, and the new version cuts down even more complexities for an ultra-easy workflow. The UI makes the management of rendering and other compute tasks a breeze, and it’s been a key factor in Deadline being adopted as the compute management tool of choice across multiple industries.
