Pixel Plow now has AI robot servants to do your bidding... OK, not really. But close! http://www.pixelplow.net/let-the-robots-do-the-work-2-0-is-here/
We're very happy to announce the release of the 2.00 agent version for Windows and Mac users. The most visible significant difference with the 1.9x agents is the fancy new Auto-Power option. It slices, it dices…wait, no it doesn't. Let me explain. The point of the Auto-Power option is simple.

Pixel Plow​ pushing the bar forward yet again with a great time-saving feature for those repeat tests and long-term projects, or multi-shot scenes. 

Imagine you have 500MB of unchanging scene assets - 3D models, terrains, textures, etc - and a scene you want to render from 3 different views with 3 cameras. Normally you'd have to re-upload all 500MB of assets for each render job. Now with asset caching the Pixel Plow client will automatically determine if requested assets have already been uploaded and save you the compression and upload time/bandwidth.

These guys are always innovating. Can't wait to see what's next for their platform.

Released today is a new agent for both Windows and Mac that gives some nice features for both testing and large pipeline integration. Project Cache is the name, and storing common job data pervasively is the game. This feature should help you re-run the same scene file for multiple passes when ...

Less than 2 weeks left until the deadline for New World Digital Art?'s Iceland challenge (Feb 14th, Midnight Eastern Time). But that's still time enough to make an entry and win! Remember, the free version of Terragen 3 qualifies, and you could win part of an epic $5000 prize pack. Give it a shot!

Get all the details over at NWDA: http://www.nwdastore.com/theme-challenge/

In case you missed it earlier this month, we dropped some exciting tidbits of info in a recent 3D Art Direct podcast interview. First we look back at 2014, then go over some of the new 3.2 features, and finally we talk about an exciting new development in our SDK partner program - a "world's first" in the making. 

(keep an eye on our social media feeds for more about that in February - it'll be worth the wait!)
