PipelineFX Releases Qube! 7.0 Featuring a Free Supervisor and Unlimited Metered Licensing

The industry's leading render farm manager dramatically boosts scale capacity with a new backend Postgres database and makes it simpler for new users and clients with a free Supervisor license and unlimited metered licensing before July 31st.

LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PipelineFX releases Qube! 7.0-0, the latest update to the leading render farm management software for visual effects. With the help of leading industry beta testers, PipelineFX has added new features for studios that need to render, report and automate in the cloud and on-premise.

PipelineFX's latest release of Qube!, version 7.0, is driven by major improvements to the fundamental architecture of the software. At the core, a new Postgres database has been integrated boasting faster response to job queries and less cumbersome table creation through a modified schema. On the surface and available in Beta immediately upon request, user interactions with Qube! are accelerated by a completely New UI codebase running what will become the single, unified interface for render farm management under Qube!. All the benefits of PipelineFX's WranglerView and ArtistView, and then some, will come together into this new UI complemented by new convenience features like more flexible interface layouts and an in-UI command prompt.

Facilitated by the database change, both Qube! clients and trial users can now acquire a Supervisor license free of charge. As PipelineFX only charges for worker licenses going forward, users can effortlessly obtain Supervisors allowing for a quicker start to testing, easier set up of multiple environments, and less expenditure. With the first 30 days free unlimited rendering driven by Metered Licensing, it will be simpler than ever before to test Qube! across all of your available resources as well as your preferred cloud provider in production. Qube! can run in any kind of cloud environment, whether private, such as Scalar or Liquid Web, or public, such as Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud or Amazon Web. PipelineFX has clients using Qube! in production on all three!

Scaling up render farms into the cloud has never been so easy with Qube!'s increased speed and scale in 7.0. If Qube! on-premise licenses are all taken, Metered Licensing will automatically expand usage of the farm into the cloud where users pay by the minute only for what they use, both for cloud resources and for Qube!.

PipelineFX is also announcing the addition of support for OS X 10.13 and newly integrated job submission for Unreal Sequencer and Keyshot, Nuke Frame Server, NukeStudio, Maya 2018, 3DS Max 2018 and After Effects CC 2018.

Pricing/Availability
Customers currently on maintenance and support can download version 7.0 immediately from the PipelineFX ftp site. With the largest variety of licensing options in the industry, users can adopt Qube! by purchasing Perpetual Licenses, Long-term Subscription, Short-term Subscription, Daily Rental, or by using pay-as-you-go Metered Licensing. Massively discounted Education Site Subscriptions are also available for accredited institutions. Now through July 31, commercial promotional pricing available here.
