    Pool and cloud storage are integrated via API to auto-render the specified Maya file and blend file. Rendered files are placed in the indicated folder. Enables large number of renderings to be done at the same time. Automatic scene file creation Maya files are automatically converted to rpr files and rendered. Do detailed customization with CSV. Rendered files are placed in a designated cloud storage location so data can easily be exchanged Cloud-based data exchange among affiliates PNG / EXR Data exchange in the cloud * User provides cloud storage (Box, Dropbox, etc. recommended) *This is a client application for Windows desktop only. *Please contact us for pricing information. Applications automate the entire process for rendering more scenes Auto-rendering CSV Render Pool Client App (Optional) 51
