Simple animation is the first cloud based, virtual, animation studio.

Up until now, any conventional animation studio needed solutions to fix certain basic needs in order to set up a production. These included:

  • Data management (storage)
  • Workstations or VDI with GRID Technology
  • Software Licenses (Autodesk, Adobe, Microsoft, etc.)
  • Production Management (Shotgun integrated)
  • Human Resources

Simple Animation is THE solution that will revolutionize the way in which a producer will launch an animation project.

Thanks to its easy and intuitive interface, Simple Animation allows its users to create a virtual studio which is completely based in the cloud. The user will be able to define the number of workstations, storage, software (number of licenses) as well as assign rolls and permissions within a production manager (Shotgun) using a pay-per-use plan in terms of time. The user pays depending on the amount of time used in order to maintain flexibility and the ability to be flexible in every aspect of the production.

Simple Animation’s users will ​can forget about managing the selection and purchasing the latest generation of hardware as well as renting software licenses, managing storage space, programming backups or controlling complex IT systems. Simple Animation offers a homogeneous animation studio which is totally legal, secure and scalable.

Its architecture, which is based in the cloud, enables users to access the platform from anywhere in the world. This allows artists to work from remote locations without having to download anything.

If you are an artist, welcome to your new virtual studio where you will be able to work on as many different productions as you need.

You will no longer need to install software to your desktop or download anything as you will now have access to the legal, fully licensed and perfectly installed software you choose. The software will be ready for you to use on multiple projects as well as with different pipelines without considering the different releases of software or hardware requirements of each project since Simple Animation automatically adapts to the requirements of each production.

Changing from project to project will be as easy as changing your t-shirt.

CLOUD BASED VIRTUAL ANIMATION STUDIO

Each studio has a principal site where the central services are managed. What stops a studio es the principal site, for another one it’s a VDI access site, inside the virtual studio cloud.
