Foundry has revealed that it has partnered with the Google Cloud platform for Athera, its new cloud service for VFX.
Previously called Elara during beta and announced last year at NAB 2017, Athera could potentially transform VFX workflows.
VFX studios and freelancers will able to move their entire pipeline into the cloud as Athera centralises storage, creative tools and pipeline in one place, giving users on-demand and flexible access to preferred industry tools, including the Nuke family, Katana, Modo, Mari, Cara VR, V-Ray, Houdini and Blender.
Athera began as a government funded project alongside ILM London.
An Athera trial can be requested from 26 April.
