Tippett employs Bakery's Relight in VFX pipeline

GEMENOS, FRANCE — The Bakery’s (www.bakery3D.com) Relight software is being used by Tippett Studio ( www.tippett.com) as part of its FX group production pipeline. Bakery Relight is the company’s first product, and is designed to serve as an interactive lighting and rendering suite of tools for the high-end feature film, TV and design markets.

“Our entire FX pipeline is based on The Bakery's advanced VFX specific tool set,” notes Tippett’s digital effects supervisor Scott Singer. “We’ve now completed several of our latest film projects using this technology, including Immortals (pictured) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1, which released last November, as well as our current projects, Ted, Mirror, Mirror, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2, which are scheduled for release in 2012.

“The Bakery team has been amazing in helping us to solve our pipeline architecture problems, allowing us to work more efficiently. We primarily use their advanced VFX-specific database functionality to describe assets, asset management, VFX processes, process control and farm submission. We can now work far more efficiently with data driven, reproducible results managing hugely complex processes and data.  It has become the backbone of our effects pipeline and has replaced most of the traditional Tippett pipeline for the FX Group.”
