Today’s studios and visual effects companies require massive computing power and large amounts of storage to produce high-end digital scenes and videos. Maintaining the infrastructure required for these jobs is expensive and operationally difficult, plus demand fluctuates day to day. Geographically diverse workforces adds additional complexity to data and content transfer. The low-cost, utility computing model as well as unique virtualization capabilities offered by AWS are well-suited to addressing these challenges. In this session you will learn how to build and deploy a studio-quality, scalable Arnold render farm on AWS with reusable templates. We’ll also demonstrate how to run Maya and Deadline remotely with AWS AppStream, and use them to edit scenes and coordinate render jobs entirely in the cloud.
