Deadline 7.1 builds on recently introduced built-in VMX (Virtual Machine Extension) support to allow both VFX and AEC users to leverage public and private cloud resources for on-demand compute. It also includes updated Slave metrics and statistics, enhancements to balanced/weighted job scheduling, expanded font synchronization, and more. Also new in Deadline 7.1 is an updated version of Draft, a lightweight compositing and video processing plugin designed to automate typical post-render tasks such as creating and processing QuickTimes, thumbnails, and other deliverables.
Note that a new 7.1 license is required to run this version. If you have a license for Deadline 7.0 or earlier, you will need an updated license. In addition, the version of Draft that ships with Deadline 7.1 needs a new 1.3 license. If you have a license for Draft 1.2 or earlier, you will need an updated license.
For details on the new features, please see the New Features in Deadline 7.1 Release History entry.
