Innovative cloud-based animation outfit Nimble Collective has announced a collaboration with Adobe to integrate the Creative Cloud suite of tools onto Nimble’s Virtual Studio Platform. Delivering on its promise of democratizing the animation technology industry, Nimble joins the Adobe Technology Partner Program and is working with Adobe to integrate and make Creative Cloud available natively on the platform worldwide.
The collaboration will leverage developer tools, guides and provide support to integrate with Creative Cloud apps and API services to distribute these integrations on Adobe Exchange, the marketplace for Adobe Creative Cloud users. Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers will also have seamless access to Nimble’s state-of-the art production workflow, asset management and collaboration functionality.
Phase one will focus on paving a seamless user experience on the platform with the addition of Adobe’s Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and Audition CC. The integration will also help end users achieve a comprehensive, efficient work environment for all stages of animation production.
As a result, Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers can now use the ultra secure Nimble platform to access their existing Adobe applications and assets. Nimble Collective runs on major public clouds such as Microsoft Azure, and enables animation teams and Studios to collaboratively access cloud-based workstations, storage, professional workflow, rendering and more.
“This ground-breaking new collaboration with Adobe is another exciting milestone in our mission to bring new voices to the world of animation,” said Rex Grignon, Co-Founder, CEO, Nimble Collective. “Empowering our customers with the capabilities of Adobe Creative Cloud is critical to creating a premier, world-class cloud solution for animation production.”
“Animation is an exciting area of growth for the global entertainment industry, and more animation studios are seeking to achieve the efficiencies and creative opportunities enabled by the cloud,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Adobe professional video. “Nimble Collective is an ideal addition to Adobe Creative Cloud for customers who want to explore the possibilities of animation production on a cloud-based platform.”
