Venerable video effects plugin developer Digieffects has released a new service product today: RenderMon.

RenderMon provides the ability to monitor video rendering from remote locations, giving professionals an extra level of freedom while still assuring the job gets done.

The App is still under development. Feel free to download the App and help us to produce the best product as possible.

Congratulations to Robert Sharp and the team at DigiEffects on this new category of service aimed at making the lives of motion graphics and video professionals just a little more convenient. There have been many times, when on deadline, I chose to miss activities so I could keep an eye on my renders. With a service like RenderMon, I could escape the suite once in awhile and still keep an eye on things while on the go.

The eSeminar I presented earlier today is now live.
