Qube! Licensing FAQ
1. What is Qube!?
Qube! provides a complete render farm management system that allows multiple jobs (or “instance” or “slave”) to run per host. A host is a computer, a server, or a desktop running OSX, Linux or Windows. Qube! allows you to maximize the utilization of your machines for rendering. Most post production, film and vfx studios, and even most schools mix applications like Maya, Vray, Nuke, Arnold and PRMan, After Effects, Cinema 4D, Houdini, etc. Qube! supports over 40 content creation applications. PipelineFX also offers the flexibility of Monthly and Daily Subscription Licensing, as well as Metered Licensing.

Qube! is sold as a render management base package of (5) Workers, the (1) Supervisor and one year of Maintenance & Support for a U.S. list price of $3,500. Each Worker license after the base package lists for U.S. $360 (U.S. $300 for the license and U.S. $60 for Maintenance & Support).
