Use top end rendering hardware and software from a basic computer
It has been a long time coming. Stack Studios has recently unveiled FELIX: the fastest, cheapest and most reliable rendering solution. A new tool designed for architects, designers, engineers, and whoever needs high quality renderings at record times. With FELIX the calculations are done in a
cloud computing facility dedicating 40 to 160 cores to every user. 3D data transfers are automatic and imperceptible even during loads of geometry
A 1Mbit connection is all it takes to make users feel like they have a
supercomputer at their fingertips. Best of all, FELIX drastically reduces
costs. It’s free and doesn’t require any powerful hardware. FELIX works on
a pre-paid credit system, so the user pays only for the completed renderings.
Key features Hardware independent performance
from 40 to 160 cores per user
Eliminates continuous hardware and software investments
100% non-destructive workflow
256 bit data encryption and redundant online storage
Easy to learn
FELIX includes a huge constantly growing professional library of textures
and materials. In fact users can share 2D and 3D data from within the
system. Setting up cameras and lights is extremely intuitive, just like the
whole application: Stack Studios maintains that it takes only up to 20
minutes to learn how to use FELIX. Another major feature is the 100% nondestructive workflow. This allows for endless and well organized changes to the projects at any stage. In David Rossmann's words: “FELIX combines the
great quality Maxwell Render with the principles of cloud computing and web 2.0. This combination of technologies represents a breakthrough in modern rendering and opens the way to infinite possibilities for development.
“Our RIF (Rich Image Format),” adds Massimo Ciani, “allows us to work on
images rich with information and auto-generated tags. Just think of the
advantages in search engine indexing. It’s just a short step from here to the
“After seven years of research, development and Beta-Testing, this
revolutionary 'Made in Italy' technology is finally available to the public."
