Group@2x

 

Immediately available, CoreWeave customers can use ThinkBox Deadline to schedule rendering jobs to CoreWeave. This gives you the convenience of Deadline coupled with CoreWeave’s best-in-class technology and service, without the infrastructure overhead of managing your own network infrastructure.

Why it Matters

When you need additional compute power, you no longer have to buy expensive render blades or even rent expensive GPUs that aren’t always available when you need them most. Instead, you can now take advantage of CoreWeave’s affordable pricing and virtually unlimited GPU availability with minimal changes to your team’s workflow.

CoreWeave provides the industry’s most responsive auto-scaling, allowing studios to access virtually unlimited rendering capacity, at the industry’s best economics, without needing to maintain and pay for idle compute time.

Without the burden and cost of maintaining their own hardware, studios can meet tighter deadlines, iterate faster, and accelerate workflows across their production pipeline.

The Details

With CoreWeave’s new Deadline integration, VFX studios can now continue to use the industry standard in render queue management but significantly accelerate their production pipeline by  transitioning more of their compute intensive jobs to our specialized cloud. Our clients are saving between 85-95% in GPU costs vs. AWS, GCP, or Azure.

Whether you’re already a CoreWeave customer or have been looking to make the switch, this new integration is a win for VFX studios everywhere.
