Dell Precision Welcomes Autodesk Flame Artists

Admit it. For many, the best part of watching a major sports event on TV is the commercials. In between tackles and touchdowns, and extra visits to the snack table, we get to enjoy a collection of 30- to 60-second spots of entertainment. While these ads are a win for the companies and brands they represent, the spots are also a culmination of months and months of complex and technical work from artists and creatives in TV and advertising.

At Dell, we’re continuously working to make the right technology solutions for all kinds of professionals, including the artists behind the ads and programs we see on TV. We aim to make our Dell Precision workstations a platform that enables creators to overcome challenges, with the growing pressures of the industry, and deliver amazing work, in less time.

As part of our work to meet these needs, we have a rigorous process for qualifying our hardware to provide the best experience for various software applications used by creators today. Our team works with our software partners to test, and retest, until our Dell Precision workstations are optimized for running these professional applications.

Today, I’m pleased to announce we’re adding one more to the list of qualified applications for Dell Precision. Autodesk Flame software offers tools for fast, interactive 3D visual effects (VFX), finishing, compositing, advanced graphics, color grading, conform, editorial, and look development.

Since November 2015, Autodesk’s flagship VFX and finishing software has been available to artists as software only with a new pricing and subscription model. Flame has never been more affordable or accessible for new artists looking to use it for the first time or those looking to scale up and down on a project basis or as their business grows.

These changes have given artists more options in their choice of hardware, including the opportunity for new storage and workstation platforms to be qualified for approved use. We are very excited that Dell Precision is now included in this select list of expanded offerings.

The Dell Precision™ Tower 7910 Workstation presents a new option to customers that want to combine the legendary performance of Flame software with Dell’s world class hardware and support. The Dell Precision Tower 7910 has been self-qualified with the help of Autodesk to meet the exhaustive requirements of the Autodesk Flame family of software products to support 3D VFX, finishing, compositing, color grading and other intensive workflows for production environments.

We are delighted to welcome Flame artists to Dell Precision and look forward to the incredible work they will create. Flame joins a list of hundreds of qualified professional applications on Dell Precision, and we’re committed to further building the best experience for more applications used by today’s professionals.
