Award-winning arch viz studio TILTPIXEL taps into the power of Chaos Cloud to render an animation of the world-famous Harbin Opera House.
Chaos Cloud is perfect for freelancers and small studios, who may lack the funds (and space!) to build internal render farms. But what about bigger companies?
Based in Houston, Texas, TILTPIXEL is an award-winning design studio that delivers 3D imagery, virtual reality experiences, and short films for real estate and architecture. Among the talented crew is Partner Ramy Hanna, who has worked in the industry for almost 15 years, and lent his expertise to presentations at Autodesk University and DVDs for Gnomon Workshop.
TILTPIXEL’s artists currently use custom-built workstations, an internal server, and a dedicated render farm with 20 render nodes to create stills and animations. It’s a pipeline which works — but that didn’t stop Hanna and his team trying out Chaos Cloud. Chaos Cloud is a new service from Chaos Group which leverages the Google Cloud Platform's scalable architecture, and its fast and secure network, to offer a simple service that is fully integrated into V-Ray.
Here, Ramy tells us about TILTPIXEL’s infrastructure, integrating Chaos Cloud and putting it through its paces, and how the company plans to use it in the future.
