Soho VFX artists also credit the purchase of additional Dell Precision T3500 workstations in helping the dynamics, modeling and animation teams push through deadlines and complete the project. They leveraged the systems to manage extremely heavy data sets and to run high-performance and multi-threaded applications like Autodesk Maya for 3D animation and The Foundry’s Nuke for digital compositing. Certified for the top digital content creation applications, Dell workstations have been Soho VFX’s workstations of choice for more than eight years due to, according to Smith, “the systems’ unflagging performance and reliability.”
“We are extremely proud to have Soho VFX as a customer and partner for more than eight years,” said Chad Andrews, Dell Media & Entertainment vertical strategist. “Soho VFX’s success with Jack the Giant Slayer serves as a great example of the benefits Dell delivers to growing customers in the media and entertainment industry. The visual effects production process is becoming increasingly complex and requires high-end, reliable technology more now than ever.”
Toronto-based Soho VFX has been a player in special effects since 2002 and is no stranger to the demands and pace of the film industry. Through the years, Dell’s hardware has been able to scale with Soho VFX’s growth, enabling them to respond quickly to difficult client requests while delivering visually stunning effects in other recent movies such as The Incredible Hulk and The Love Guru.
