Discreet ships burn 1 background processing software

Discreet's burn 1 Linux-based network solution for its visual effects systems inferno, flame and flint is now shipping.

burn delivers double the offline rendering performance of complex visual effects, allowing post production artists to stay focused on the creative process while streamlining their productivity.

The program ships with backburner, Discreet’s network rendering management software. Backburner prioritizes and allocates requests for more efficient workload sharing across multiple render nodes. With as few as two render nodes, burn can reduce the rendering time of a single flame system in half-doubling productivity, the company said.

The new burn software package is available immediately and requires Linux Red Hat version 8.0. It ships with licenses that can be installed on a variety of supported hardware configurations.
