Deadline 10 is here!
Wednesday, 30 August 2017 10:18

Deadline 10 increases flexibility for hybrid workflows that leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2, allowing you the freedom to easily access any combination of on-premise or cloud-based resources. The new AWS Portal panel in the Deadline Monitor enables simple and secure expansion of your on-premise render farm, and natively integrates with AWS via your existing AWS account. It also synchronizes with your on-premise asset server automatically to ensure all appropriate files have been transferred to AWS before rendering begins.

Highlighted Features

  • Deadline AWS Portal.
  • Dynamic Licensing Switching - The Deadline Slaves can now automatically switch between traditional Floating Licensing and Usage Based licensing.
  • Flexible Deadline Client Configuration - All settings in the deadline.ini configuration file can now be overridden using environment variables.
  • Execute Command Whitelist - To enhance security, a new Execute Command whitelist option has been added to Remote Administration, which allows you to define the exact commands that are allowed to be executed on remote machines.
  • Remote Connection Server - The Remote Connection Server is a new Deadline application that is meant to be a drop-in replacement for the Deadline Proxy Server application.

The price of a one-year Deadline license is now just $48.00 USD including support.

Perpetual licenses are available upon request.
