New Native Blender Plug-In for Conductor Enhances Workflow for Artists and Creators

New Native Blender Plug-In for Conductor Enhances Workflow for Artists and Creators

Roseland, N.J.— January 18, 2024 — CoreWeave,  the leading specialized GPU cloud provider, today announced the release of a native integration between Conductor cloud-based rendering service and Blender open source 3D software. The new plug-in streamlines the experience of using Conductor with Blender, allowing users to begin rendering quicker and easier, without leaving their creative environment. Once the Conductor Blender plug-in has been installed, users will see the Conductor drop-down menu in Blender in their render view.  

“Conductor is for artists who want greater data visibility into their render jobs, enhanced cost control, and integration within their creative tools. Now, we’re able to bring that robust, turnkey functionality to Blender artists, providing critical access to computing power so artists can create and experiment at the highest levels,” said Mac Moore, Head of Media and Entertainment at CoreWeave. 

The Conductor Blender plug-in also offers an enhanced, professional experience for artists, creators, and small studios that use CoreWeave’s other rendering service, Concierge Render. 

Conductor Blender Plug-in Key Benefits: 

  • Automatic File Dependency Scraping: When submitted, jobs are automatically evaluated to ensure all the pieces are present and accounted for before the render begins, as opposed to artists checking manually. 
  • Increased Data Visibility: Dynamic feedback indicates what is happening when jobs are running and helps identify failure points so artists can troubleshoot when a job fails.
  • Comprehensive Cost Controls: With cost limits offered in addition to credits, artists can scale within a set cost threshold if the job requirements exceed the credits, providing artists greater budgeting flexibility.

In addition to the new Blender plug-in, Conductor integrates natively with Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max, Maxon’s Cinema 4D, Foundry’s Katana and Nuke, Adobe After Effects, and SideFX’s Houdini. It can also be used with many other popular digital content creation applications through custom scripting. Highly secure, Conductor uploads only the necessary files for rendering each submitted scene, and both the uploaded data and the resulting images are encrypted in cloud object storage. External audit firm Independent Security Evaluators (ISE) performs ongoing assessments of Conductor, ensuring the solution meets the rigorous security standards required by major studios.

Today’s announcement follows CoreWeave’s successful integration with the Conductor cloud-based rendering service, allowing CoreWeave’s VFX and animation customers to take their creative work to the next level.
