Barnstorm VFX Transitions to New Virtual Environment

Customer Challenge

Barnstorm VFX is a leading high-end visual effects studio that does complex compositing, CG, creatures, green-screen, and other various high-end VFX work. They have done work for multiple mediums including film, television and streaming markets. Like many companies since the start of the pandemic, they evolved to working in an all-virtual environment and needed a new pipeline method to continue business.

Project Goals

In order to complete their transition, Barnstorm needed to achieve software access from multiple locations for their artists. Ramping up how artists access their software meant that they would have the flexibility and ease to maintain efficiency and continue meeting deadlines for their cliental.


Autodesk Solution Provider RFX assisted Barnstorm by providing and managing Maya and Media & Entertainment Collection software, which also enabled Arnold-rendering solutions. The combination of these software programs allowed the artists to have a cohesive workflow in their new virtual environment.

Business Outcome

Over the course of the year, RFX was able to effectively help Barnstorm complete their transition to their new virtual environment. Barnstorm not only avoided losing any efficiency, but found their new pipeline method to be an improvement over their previous model.


Through the hybrid Autodesk solution and license management team at RFX, Barnstorm was able to continue meeting deadlines for their clients despite the limitations brought by the pandemic. Artists are now able to access their software without the worry of how problems such as a quarantine might interrupt their work.
