Google has demonstrated how its cloud services can be used by content creators by running a virtual VFX studio in the cloud for a three day animation project.

Google worked with a team of animators to animate a short over the course of three days at Google Cloud Next.

The animated short can be seen here.

Artists connected to virtual workstations through a zero client and remote artists were able to remotely collaborate using Google Meet.

Partners like BeBop Technology provided a managed workstation to all artists.

Modelling and animation was completed on virtual workstations, while Google Cloud rendered all 1,455 final frames using Zync Render a Renderfarm-as-a-Service running on GCP.

In June, Google Cloud announced a variety of solutions aimed at helping content creators.
