Sony Pictures Imageworks choose NXN alienbrain VFX

Sony Pictures Imageworks have chosen NXN alienbrain VFX for the production of visual effects, digital character animation and full-length CG motion pictures.
NXN alienbrain VFX, the first commercial digital asset and production management system specifically designed for high-end computer graphics projects, will be integrated into Imageworks' production pipeline for such upcoming films such as 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'The Polar Express'.
Tim Sarnoff, president of Sony Pictures Imageworks, said: "Sony Pictures Imageworks continue to redefine the role of digital effects in feature films.
"When we bring a filmmaker's vision to the screen, we work with a vast amount of digital assets. Tracking the asset flow throughout production with NXN alienbrain VFX will enable us to make these groundbreaking films more efficiently."
Sony Pictures Imageworks will deploy NXN alienbrain VFX studio-wide to track motion capture data, 3D models, rendered film clips and digitised live-action plates in upcoming productions. NXN alienbrain VFX enables Imageworks' teams to track the dependencies between scenes, models and textures, manage large amounts of film frames efficiently and optimise versioning and archiving for all digital assets.
In addition to the core asset management functionality, Imageworks will also use NXN alienbrain VFX to enhance existing systems, such as those used for review and approval during the film studio's daily screening sessions.
Based on the asset management technology of NXN alienbrain, NXN alienbrain VFX was specifically adapted for computer animated feature films and high-end visual effects productions. It is a terabyte-scalable system for large teams in heterogeneous hardware environments. In contrast to traditional asset management systems that focus primarily on archiving completed assets, NXN alienbrain VFX helps teams manage their digital assets from concept to completion.
