Two things continue to be true in visual effects and rendering projects: schedules fluctuate, and the effort to get to final remains impossible to predict. This is where ZYNC was born: from the rendering pipelines of real studios, enabling small creative teams to focus on creativity rather than infrastructure. Using native Maya plugins and built-in licensing for today's most powerful rendering software, ZYNC lets studios burst their rendering to the cloud when they need it most. ZYNC has been the go-to rendering solutions for over a dozen feature films and hundreds of commercials, totaling over 50 million core rendering hours. This course will show how small-to-midsize facilities can leverage the power of Google Cloud Platform to render their most complex, CPU-intensive jobs on ZYNC.
