Optima Digital, an award-winning premier post-production house and creative services company and Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, recently extended its collaboration at its Makati City office.
Optima Digital has been using Autodesk Digital Entertainment Creation software for the past 18 years. Autodesk has a comprehensive portfolio of creative solutions, designed to work together to address projects across the entire production pipeline, from computer graphics (CG) design, to compositing, color grading, and creative finishing.
Optima recently purchased Autodesk Flame Premium visual effects software, its seventh Autodesk Flame software. The company also uses other Autodesk software products, including Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk Smoke. This has enabled Optima to offer a full range of post-production services in Philippines, such as telecine, color grading, visual effects and design, CG imagery, digital film printing, and mastering. Today Optima is ranked amongst the leading post production outfits in South East Asia and has helped set the benchmark for local and regional post-production houses, by using some of the most powerful and cutting-edge Digital Entertainment Creation software.
“We are delighted to grow our collaboration with Optima Digital – a premier post-production house. Autodesk strives to forge long-term relationships with customers and is committed to customers’ success. Today’s contract signing is a testament to this ideology,” said Teddy D. Tiu, Autodesk Philippines Country Manager. “Today, using Autodesk solutions, Optima is revolutionizing the way television ads and films look and has pioneered the post-production technology in Philippines. We work very closely with Optima and this involves the sharing of ideas regarding features, functionalities and direction. Every industry has a pioneer and Optima Digital is that company and we are proud to be associated with it.”
“Optima was the first to bring the Flame software in the region when we bought our very first Autodesk software in 1994 and since then Optima has been in the forefront of digital graphics creation and design,” said Pete Jimenez, Optima Digital President and COO. “Over the years, Autodesk software and turnkey systems have helped us become the market leader in creative finishing. Now, we have become more aggressive by putting in place two (2) Flame Premium in addition to our current configuration of Inferno, Flame, Smoke and Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max. These products have helped us reduce turnaround time, providing us with real-time results and a final output that is sharp, glossy and elegant. The superior design quality is notable and our customers are delighted with the final result. We believe that for any company to be successful it should strike a balance between cutting-edge equipment and creative, competent people. We know that Autodesk solutions and our talented in-house design team bring out this winning combination for us to be successful.”
