Weta Digital has announced a partnership with Autodesk to release WetaM, a suite of Weta Digital’s proprietary VFX tools provided as a commercialised cloud-based service.
The tools are built on Maya’s open API, and will be provided by Weta Digital as a subscription cloud service. The launch of WetaM is significant in that it marks the first product launch under a newly formed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) division within Weta Digital. This new business arm is “an integral part of Weta’s expansion strategy to offer professional and prosumer tools to artists across the global entertainment industry”. Find out more on the WetaM website.
WetaM is expected to be available as a private beta this winter. Read the full PR and sign up for updates on the WetaM website.
