NEW Qube! UI
Combining the functionality of WranglerView with the colorful, more flexible user interface of ArtistView, the new Qube! UI will be the ultimate tool for users, wranglers, producers, management, or any role that needs to access farm status and data.
ArtistView is a fast, visual, and artist-friendly front end to managing your render jobs. ArtistView includes everything an end user needs to easily manage their own render jobs. Always flexible, every right-click menu item and context sensitive tab is a simple and easy to create python plug-in. Manage and troubleshoot rendering jobs while seeing a breakdown of current and planned jobs, estimated completion times, a log history and rendered frames previews. Controls over the queue allow a user to block a job, kill it, re-attempt or sort it for more efficient results. It is also possible to scrub through rendered frames directly inside the GUI.
The Qube! WranglerView GUI allows wranglers and system administrators to monitor and manage servers and other network equipment on your render pipeline in a straight-forward and complete view.
Qube! MobileView enables users to monitor the render queue remotely and perform essential tasks such as retrying dropped frames.
Qube’s QBLocker is a desktop application for artists or students to easily add or subtract CPU cores to and from the render farm. Only one click to purge render jobs if the desktop is needed for creative work.
