To develop Od Studios’ high end linux based visual effects and animation pipeline, we have partnered with Leaping Rhino who have had over 15 years of combined experience in building lean and agile pipelines to serve both the visual effects and long form CG animation industries. The developers have worked at studios that handle tv series work, high end film vfx as well as feature animation. Together we have designed and built a custom pipeline that can handle any project type with a minimum of configuration overhead.

Having easy access to a modern pipeline may not sound like much, but it will allow us to scale up smoothly and handle projects of any size, which is something not often seen in a startup studio. The pipeline will help us stay organized and efficient even at larger shot counts.
