Blade Server for 3D Arts Animation Production

Hotbox Studios has just installed a new Dell Blade Server which will help dramatically increase the speed of our arts animation production!

The new Blade Server has been installed to provide the extra power required for the caching and rendering of 3D animation projects. The Blade Server will be the hardware powering Hotbox Studios' new Render Farm - meaning that we'll be able to produce tests and final compositions of 3D animation projects far faster!

Our 3D animation is created using a variety of software including:

  • Autodesk Maya 3D Animation, Visual Effects and Compositing Software
  • Mental Images Mental Ray Photorealistic Rendering Software
  • Adobe After Effects Animation, Editing and Compositing Software
  • Adobe Photoshop Image Editing and Manipulation Software

The new Blade Server and Render Farm will be primarily focused around increasing the speed our Mental Ray rendering solution.
