Thinware Media enters studio workflow partnership with StudioEngine

StudioEngine customers of studio-on-demand services can now use the cloud-based StudioCAP to store and manage CGI data.

Two specialists in workflow automation for cinema are teaming up to offer their services. StudioEngine is a ‘studio-as-a-service’ production facility for on-demand use by producers, animators, and production teams. Thinwear Media is the maker of StudioCAP workflow automation and asset management for animation studios. In the new partnership StudioEngine will add StudioCAP technology to their workflow pipeline.

StudioCAP’s cloud-based GC asset management system enables studios to more store, track, and move 2D and 3D CGI (computer generated image) assets through the creation process without having to install and manage a costly IT infrastructure. By integrating StudioCAP into the StudioEngine facility workflow, clients will be able to manage their files under one virtual roof. Automating asset and project management via cloud-based StudioCAP alleviates the need for studios or small production teams to purchase and maintain dedicated file servers and hardware.

The deal was announced today at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
