VFX & Animation Solutions

Animation studios and FX shops get the storage and data management solution they need to enable a global namespace without sacrificing performance or suffering from vendor and data lock-in.

Enable Your Global Workforce

The demand for animation and visual effects is constantly growing. pixitmedia enables studios to take advantage of creative talent anywhere in the world and gives them access to the data, content, and tools they need to work fast and efficiently wherever they are located.

VFX and animation studios face several challenges when managing a global, distributed workforce. These challenges include:

  1. Communication: Communication can be a significant challenge when working with a global, distributed workforce. There may be language barriers, time zone differences, and cultural differences that can make it difficult to communicate effectively and efficiently.

  2. Collaboration: Collaboration is essential in the VFX and animation industry, and it can be challenging when team members are scattered across different locations. It may be difficult to share files, review work, and collaborate in real-time, which can slow down the production process.

  3. Data management: Managing data is a crucial aspect of VFX and animation, and it can be challenging when team members are working remotely. There may be issues with file sharing, version control, and data security that need to be addressed.

  4. Infrastructure: VFX and animation studios require specialized hardware and software to produce high-quality work. This can be challenging when team members are working remotely, as they may not have access to the necessary equipment or infrastructure.

  5. Quality control: Ensuring consistent quality across different locations and team members can be a significant challenge in the VFX and animation industry. It may be difficult to maintain a high level of quality when team members are working remotely, and there may be issues with consistency and accuracy.

Overall, managing a global, distributed workforce can be challenging for VFX and animation studios. It requires careful planning, effective communication, and specialized tools and infrastructure to ensure that team members can collaborate. pixitmedia intuitively streamlines VFX and animation pipelines allowing artists to collaborate in real-time and deliver exceptional content remotely.
