Artists don´t have to install or run any software on their own computer, in fact they can´t even download the assets locally: everything is running in Simple Animation server, and kept securely there.
The possibilities are truly endless:
- Imagine you need a super powerful workstation for just a few days to calculate and render a massive fluid simu…
