By using the Codex Production Server in tandem with the Codex Backbone, projects can be run in remote locations but can be linked to production, VFX vendors and post production so that critical information is immediately available to those who need it. For example, a VFX vendor can quickly access a QuickTime file of a shot and submit a bid to the producer, all managed through the secure infrastructure of the Codex Cloud.
Codex has worked with leading pipeline provider Shotgun Software during the development of Backbone and Production Server. The Codex Production Server can host the Shotgun Server and can serve as the delivery mechanism for VFX plate pulls and transcodes, as well as managing the creation of bid packages and the submission of shots. This means that VFX management and vendors are completely tied in with production from pre-production through to finishing and archiving.
