Amazon nimble studio – build a creative studio in the cloud.

Amazon Nimble Studio is a new service that creative studios can use to produce visual effects, animations, and interactive content entirely in the cloud with AWS, from the storyboard sketch to the final deliverable. Nimble Studio provides customers with on-demand access to virtual workstations, elastic file storage, and render farm capacity. It also provides built-in automation tools for IP security, permissions, and collaboration.

Traditional creative studios often face the challenge of attracting and onboarding talent. Talent is not localized, and it’s important to speed up the hiring of remote artists and make them as productive as if they were in the same physical space. It’s also important to allow distributed teams to use the same workflow, software, licenses, and tools that they use today, while keeping all assets secure.

In addition, traditional customers resort to buying more hardware for their local render farms, rent hardware at a premium, or extend their capacity with cloud resources. Those who decide to render on the cloud navigate these options and the large breadth of AWS offerings and perceive complexity, which can lead them to choose legacy approaches.

Today, we are happy to announce the launch of Amazon Nimble Studio, a service that addresses these concerns by providing ready-made IT infrastructure as a service, including workstations, storage, and rendering.

Nimble Studio is part of a broader portfolio of purpose-built AWS capabilities for media and entertainment use cases, including AWS services, AWS and Partner Solutions, and over 400 AWS Partners. You can learn more about our AWS for Media & Entertainment initiative , also launched today , which helps media and entertainment customers easily identify industry-specific AWS capabilities across five key business areas: Content production, Direct-to-consumer and over-the-top (OTT) streaming, Broadcast, Media supply chain and archive, and Data science and Analytics.

Benefits of using Nimble Studio Nimble Studio is built on top of AWS infrastructure, ensuring performant computing power and security of your data. It also enables an elastic production, allowing studios to scale the artists’ workstations, storage, and rendering needs based on demand.

When using Nimble Studio, artists can use their favorite creative software tools on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) virtual workstation. Nimble Studio uses EC2 for compute, Amazon FSx for storage, AWS Single Sign-On for user management, and AWS Thinkbox Deadline for render farm management.

Nimble Studio is open and compatible with most storage solutions that support the NFS/SMB protocol, such as Weka.io and Qumulo , so you can bring your own storage.

For high-performance remote display, the service uses the NICE DCV protocol and provisions G4dn instances that are available with NVIDIA GPUs.

By providing the ability to share assets using globally accessible data storage, Nimble Studio makes it possible for studios to onboard global talent. And Nimble Studio centrally manages licenses for many software packages, reduces the friction of onboarding new artists, and enables predictable budgeting.

In addition, Nimble Studio comes with an artist-friendly console. Artists don’t need to have an AWS account or use the AWS Management Console to do their work.

But my favorite thing about Nimble Studio is that it’s intuitive to set up and use. In this post, I will show you how to create a cloud-based studio.

screenshot of the intro of nimble studio

Set up a cloud studio using Nimble Studio To get started with Nimble Studio, go to the AWS Management Console and create your cloud studio. You can decide if you want to bring your existing resources, such as file storage, render farm, software license service, Amazon Machine Image (AMI) , or a directory in Active Directory. Studios that migrate existing projects can use AWS Snowball for fast and secure physical data migration.

Configure AWS SSO For this configuration, choose the option where you don’t have any existing resources, so you can see how easy it is to get started. The first step is to configure AWS SSO in your account. You will use AWS SSO to assign the artists permissions based on some roles to access the studio. To set up AWS SSO, follow these steps in the AWS Directory Services console.

Configure your studio with StudioBuilder StudioBuilder is a tool that will help you to deploy your studio simply by answering some configuration questions. StudioBuilder is available in an AMI. You can get it for free from the AWS Marketplace .

After you get the AMI from AWS Marketplace, you can find it in the Public  images  list in the EC2 console. Launch that AMI in an EC2 instance. I recommend a t3.medium instance. Set the Auto-assign Public IP field to Enable to ensure that your instance receives a public IP address. You will use it later to connect to the instance.

Screenshot of launching the StudioBuilder AMI

As soon as you connect to the instance, you are directed to the StudioBuilder setup.

Screenshot of studio builder setup

The setup guides you, step by step through the configuration of networking, storage, Active Directory, and rendering farm. Simply answer the questions to build the right studio for your needs.

Screenshot of the studio building

The setup takes around 90 minutes. You can monitor the progress using the AWS CloudFormation console. Your studio is ready when four new CloudFormation stacks have been created in your account: Network, Data, Service, and Compute.

Screenshot of stacks completed in CloudFormation

Now terminate the StudioBuilder instance and return to the Nimble Studio console. In Studio setup, you can see that you’ve completed four of the five steps.

Screenshot of the studio setup tutorial

Assign access to studio admin and users To complete the last step, Step 5: Allow studio access , you will use the Active Directory directory you created during the StudioBuilder step and the AWS SSO you configured earlier to allow access to the administrators and artists to the studio.

Follow the instructions in the Nimble Studio console to connect the directory to AWS SSO. Then you can add administrators to your studio. Administrators have control over what users can do in the studio.

At this point, you can add users to the studio, but because your directory doesn’t have users yet, move to the next step. You can return to this step later to add users to the studio.

Accessing the studio for the first time When you open the studio for the first time, you will find the Studio URL in the Studio Manager console. You will share this URL with your artists when the studio is ready. To sign in to the studio, you need the user name and password of the Admin you created earlier.

Screenshot of studio name

Launch profiles When the studio opens, you will see two launch profiles:  one that is a render farm instance and the other that is a workstation. They were created by StudioBuilder when you set up the studio. Launch profiles control access to resources in your studio, such as compute farms, shared file systems, instance types, and AMIs. You can use the Nimble Studio console to create as many launch profiles as you need, to customize your team’s access to the studio resources.

Screenshot of the studio

When you launch a profile, you launch a workstation that includes all the software you provided in the installed AMI. It takes a few minutes for the instance to launch for the first time. When it is ready, you will see the instance in the browser. You can sign in to it with the same user name and password you use to sign in to the studio.

Screenshot of launching a new instance

Now your studio is ready! Before you share it with your artists, you might want to configure more launch profiles, add your artist users to the directory, and give those users permissions to access the studio and launch profiles.

Here’s a short video that describes how Nimble Studio can help you and works:

What is Adobe Creative Cloud and How does it Work?

There's a lot of confusion surrounding Adobe Creative Cloud - this guide answers all the common questions, including whether you should subscribe to it in 2024.

Learn | Photography Guides | By Usnea Lebendig

Adobe Creative Cloud is a collection of 20+ desktop and mobile apps and services for photography, video editing, graphic design, web development and more.

You download the apps from Creative Cloud, install them on your computer or mobile device, then pay monthly or annually to use them as part of a subscription.

Previously, Adobe offered individual products with a perpetual software license, including Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as software suites containing several products such as Adobe Creative Suite.

(Owners of older Adobe CS6 apps can continue to use them without a subscription, but cannot benefit from updates and support.)

In this guide, we’ll answer all the most common questions surrounding Adobe Creative Cloud, including most importantly: What is Adobe Creative Cloud and do I need it?

  • Great value for money
  • Free trials available on all apps
  • Subscription includes regular updates
  • Powerful mobile apps
  • Seamless compatibility between apps
  • Each app is industry leader
  • Creative Suite allows infinite creative possibilities
  • Huge library of Adobe fonts
  • Extremely active forums – fast answers
  • Includes 20+ creative apps
  • Unpopular subscription model
  • Steep learning curves
  • Excessive number of apps in All Apps Plan
  • Occasionally poor Adobe customer service
  • Loss of access to proprietary file formats upon cancellation
  • Need to be online semi-regularly (~4 months)

The Adobe Creative Cloud comprises multiple applications for photographers, video editors, designers and other creative professionals and enthusiasts.

Most relevant for photographers are Lightroom and Photoshop, with Acrobat (PDFs/online signing), Illustrator (vector graphics editor) , Spark (visual storytelling), Portfolio (personalised websites) and various other apps being popular in the industry too.

(For a brief description of all 52 of the Adobe apps, see here .)

Along with desktop-based apps, the Adobe Creative Cloud also offers free Android and iOS mobile apps, including Lightroom Mobile and Photoshop Mobile.

All Creative Cloud desktop apps are free to download from the Internet as part of a 7-day trial, but continued use requires a monthly or annual subscription.

(The mobile apps can be used for free indefinitely, but features such as cloud backups and multi-device syncing are unavailable until a subscription plan is purchased.)

The Adobe Creative Cloud software operates in the background on the user’s computer, ensuring apps are kept up to date, while also providing a centralised account from which to download new apps.

Depending on the subscription plan, users are free to download various Adobe apps to use for as long as their subscription is active.

  • What is the difference between Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Creative Suite?

Adobe Creative Cloud is the current subscription version of Adobe products. In the past, you were able to buy Photoshop outright , but nowadays you need to enter into a subscription for the ability to use PS or any of the other Adobe apps.

The Creative Suite are the older, discontinued versions of Adobe programs  that you could buy outright.

Adobe Creative Cloud FAQs

Why can I not uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud?

You actually can uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud. Simply download the uninstaller and run it. We’ve also written a guide on how to uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud if you need to get rid of all the associated files as well.

Can you uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud and keep Photoshop?

No, you need Adobe Creative Cloud installed if you want to use Photoshop or any of the other Adobe Creative Cloud products. If you don’t want Creative Cloud running, simply tell the desktop app not to launch when you start up your computer.

What happens if you stop paying for Adobe Creative Cloud?

After you cancel your Adobe subscription , the software will stop working and your account will be downgraded to the “free” level. Your cloud storage will go down to 2 GB (though you have a 90-day grace period). You’ll have a year to retrieve any Lightroom photos from the cloud and can still use many aspects of Lightroom, just not the Develop & Map modules and Lightroom for mobile.

Is there a cancellation fee for Adobe Creative Cloud?

Cancelling is free if you cancel within 14 days of starting your subscription or from the anniversary date of when your subscription renews. Otherwise, you’ll be charged a full 50% of the remaining cost of your membership.

How do I get out of paying Adobe cancellation fee?

When you go to cancel, Adobe will offer a discount and/or the opportunity to switch to another plan. Choose the switch to another plan option (ideally the most inexpensive). Once the plan change is complete, start the cancellation process again within the next 14 days. This will remove the cancellation fee since you’re now in the 14-day window of starting a subscription.

How can I get Adobe Photoshop without a subscription?

Only older versions of Photoshop CS are available without a subscription. They are all now unsupported. Downloading pirated versions is possible, but illegal and untrustworthy.

Is Adobe CC better than CS6?

At this point, Adobe CC is much better than CS6. It has many more features and is totally integrated into the online community. Photoshop C6 still works for many things, but as OS and camera software keeps getting updated and C6 doesn’t, it will lose more and more functionality.

Can I use Adobe without a subscription?

You can only use the Creative Suite version without a subscription. All Adobe Creative Cloud products are sold by subscription only.

How do I stop Adobe Creative Cloud from running in the background?

In the Creative Cloud app, go to File and click on Preferences. In the General section, uncheck the ‘Launch Creative Cloud at login’ option. Click on Done.

Is Adobe Creative Cloud worth it?

For creative professionals, Adobe Creative Cloud is absolutely worth it!

Whether you sign up for the photographer’s plan, an individual program, or get the entire creative suite, you won’t find higher-quality software. Overall, there simply isn’t a better suite of software around.

Frankly, the subscription pricing is also more than reasonable, too. Once you total up the frequent updates, cloud services, and new features, the subscription price is cumulatively lower than just about any of the alternatives.

Final Words

If you’re at all serious about your work in design, photography, marketing or media, the Creative Suite is more than worth the investment.

There’s a reason that programs like Lightroom, Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere are all industry standards – they’re simply fantastic pieces of software.

While most of us like to own products outright, the subscription model allows Adobe to keep up with all the updates that Apple and Microsoft keep rolling out for their operating systems – much faster than if they had to release a whole new boxed version for a huge price like in years before.

And while there are plenty of companies creating alternatives to After Effects , Lightroom, Photoshop and all the other Adobe products, if you tally up the initial cost plus the cost of all their updates, it generally comes out equal to or even more than the subscription cost of Adobe CC – especially if you’re on the Photographer’s plan.

Lightroom-Classic-vs-CC

Usnea Lebendig is an experienced photographer and reviewer who loves to photograph professionally and in moments where the world’s beauty and/or strangeness leaps in front of the lens.

I am trying to love Adobe Cloud, however as a teacher using the cloud with groups of 30 students (macitosh Lab) it is becoming almost impossible to keep up with updates and internet issues. Is there a better model to use for teaching Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop? It was way better when we had to pay a license fee and individually put the software on each device. Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated.

One thing I didn’t mention in the article is that I was completely anti-subscription when Adobe first transitioned over. I literally tried just about every Lightroom alternative – from Capture 1 to Luminar, ON1, and many others.

I gotta say that all trying out the other programs did was convince me to go back to Lightroom (after about a year of Capture 1 – Sony version). I love Luminar 4 as a plug-in, but it just doesn’t do what LR does. And since I never found anything that comes close to Photoshop (I gave GIMP a fair try – really I did), I ended up biting the bullet and getting the Photographer’s Plan. I’m finally happy with my editing software…for the first time since LR 6 was a current.

Anyone else have this experience?

How to foster great creative collaborations

Great Chats with Kit and Adobe Express" title card with photo of Kitiya Palaskas and Chris and Andrew Yee in a polaroid and flower embelishments

Kitiya Palaskas is a Melbourne based designer specialising in the creation of props, installations, sets and imagery using craft-based techniques. Kit has teamed up with with designers and artists Andrew and Chris Yee to share their insights on what makes a great creative collaboration.

I recently visited designers, artists and storytellers Chris and Andrew Yee at Blank Gallery in Sydney’s Chinatown, on the opening night of Cosmic Friends, their collaborative exhibition in celebration of Lunar New Year. We spoke about how their culture has informed their experience as creatives, why representation matters in the creative industry, their collaborative process, and how they’re using Adobe tools to complement their work.

Chris Yee is an artist, working as an illustrator, designer and animator specialising in traditional “pen and paper” methodologies. His brother, Andrew Yee is a multidisciplinary artist working across illustration, video, installation and podcasting. They’re both extremely talented, and total legends too. I’m so inspired by their vibrant aesthetic, and how they use the power of storytelling to create work that speaks to their life experience and growing up in the Asian-Australian community. It was a pleasure to profile them for Great Chats, my interview series with Adobe that profiles diverse creatives from this region and explores their thoughts on the future of technology in the creative space, and how they integrate Adobe tools into their workflows. Check out my interview with them to hear their insights.

In particular, I loved hearing about how they cultivated their strong creative bond and what makes a great creative collaboration. Collaborations have the power to build community, strengthen relationships, and fuel creativity - which is especially important in a world that can sometimes feel divided. I’m a firm believer in the concept of ‘Community Over Vanity’ and the notion that when we join forces and lift others as we rise ourselves, our communities can be stronger and more powerful than if we try to go it alone.

Whether your siblings who regularly create together like Andrew and Chris, or someone about to embark on a creative collaboration, here’s some advice to help you forge strong creative connections.

Chris and Andrew Yee’s work in Cosmic Friends

Know your collaborator

Andrew’s advice is to really get to know who you’re collaborating with. I totally agree and feel this makes the process of collaborating so much smoother, and fun! As twins, Andrew and Chris obviously already know each other very well. They also know the stories they are each telling and share a lot of the same inspirations, so collaboration may come more easily. But as Andrew says, knowing your collaborator is important so you can know what you each want out of the project, manage expectations, and ensure you’re on the same page. Knowing their personality can help too because it gives insight into how they work and respond to challenges and creative problems.

Communication is key

Chris values good communication and transparency in the creative collaboration process, and I agree. Knowing where all collaborators stand at any given stage of a project is important to ensuring you’re all on the same page. Like any relationship, a creative collaboration will thrive when all your cards are on the table, and it helps to mitigate conflict and misunderstanding. However, Chris believes that you don’t necessarily have to agree on everything. It can be interesting and fun when you don’t because it can lead to different interpretations of the work and allow fresh and varied ideas to flourish.

Leverage tools to help boost collaboration

If you’re a creative professional, chances are you’re going to be liaising with clients, collaborators, fellow designers and artists, or members of your own team, if you’ve got one. Strong communication skills are essential in my opinion for creating harmonious working relationships. And having the right tools at your disposal to help maintain strong communication when you’re working collaboratively is also a must. I often work on design assets simultaneously with my collaborators, and Adobe Express has some great tools to help you do this. In Express, I might start a design to get the creative direction set, and then hand it over to a collaborator to add copy, details, edits etc. You can easily share designs with others from within Adobe Express, by using the Invite button to give them access to the document. This is great if you want feedback from a client on a work in progress design, or if you want to add editing notes for a collaborator to implement. You can use the comment feature to chat back and forth about the design until you’ve got it just right. It’s great to have all your notes in one place right within the design dashboard, so you don’t have to jump in and out of your emails to communicate about the project.

My name is Katie. I live high up in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico.

I love books and baking. I love sugar a little too much. Who doesn't, right? Actually, I am trying to eliminate it and using alternatives. Some of my older posts do use sugar, but in more up-to-date ones I use stevia blends or erythritol (Swerve).

I am really blessed that I get to be a stay at home mom. I have never been busier in my whole life. If I could talk to myself as a single woman...I would tell myself to take a nap!

This blog will follow me on that journey as I learn to take care of my family with some creativity.

I mostly blog about spiritual matters, because my goal is to walk with God and share my journey along the way. My subscribers have access to printables with verses to help with living a Godly life.

Last day to get 40% off all Adobe Creative Cloud apps in the UK

The All Apps suite has been slashed to just £34.18 per month.

The Adobe CC logo on a multi-coloured background.

We are in the peak era of digital content creation, and Adobe Creative Cloud is the leading software package for pros, teachers, and students alike. And right now, if you're in the UK you can get a 12-month subscription to the All Apps Creative Cloud collection from Adobe for just £34.18 per month (previously £56.98/mo) .  Heads up: this deal ends tomorrow – February 21, 2024.

This offer from Adobe will save you £22.80 per month, which adds up to around £273 per year. And is a total bargain if you ask us, considering that this bundle features 20+ essential creative apps for artists and designers, plus 100GB of cloud space storage, and access to the latest generative AI tools. 

So what's the catch? This offer applies to first-time eligible subscribers of Adobe Creative Cloud in the UK only – so if you've had access to Creative Cloud before on an individual plan, then unfortunately this deal doesn't apply to you. You'll also be tied into the subscription for a year, but billed monthly. So there's no going back. 

But the good news is that Adobe has plenty of free trials available for you to test out its advanced software before you commit, and if you're a student or teacher, you can save over 65% on Creative Cloud with the Adobe All Apps plan, lowering the price to just £16.24 per month. See our Apple student discount and Samsung student discount guides if you need a reliable device to run your new apps on.

After February 2024 Windows Update my PC will no longer launch apps after mandatory Restart, including Task Manager and all built-in apps

I have an AMD Radeon RX6600 graphics card, and I had an update for Adrenalin. While restarting the PC to install that update, all other Windows updates also installed.

Computer boots up fine and I'm able to sign in, but apps that open upon startup like Discord won't launch and all other programs like Task Manager and Settings won't launch either, on top of the Shut Down and Restart options on the Start Menu not working. This has happened multiple times already, as I was trying to avoid Windows updates in fear of my PC breaking again.

I reinstalled a fresh version of Windows about a week or so ago because of this, and I really don't want to go through the trouble of reinstalling everything again only for it to do the same thing for a future update.

Should I switch to Windows 11 or is there a way to fix what's happening to my PC?

I need help.

My computer keeps going to a blue screen error randomly and I cannot fix it. I tried using the steps above however in the uninstall option I cannot find KB5034763.

I need this fixed as soon as possible, I have school and a big work assignment coming up and cannot risk my computer randomly shutting down during the middle of it

Same issue here as of Feb 16. Just did a windows 10 update and now my taskbar isn’t loading correctly. My mouse randomly jumps at times and task manager itself froze after trying to exit. This update absolutely did something odd.

I'm having a similar problem, but can't access any apps or task manager. A couple of seconds after starting up, my Sony VAIO notebook takes me to a white ease of access screen and doesn't allow me to exit.

All I can do is sign out or manually shut down. I've tried using the troubleshooter, and followed someone else's instructions to use ctrl+shift+esc but task manager won't open. I'm completely stuck. Please help.

How about ms stops pushing them updates leading to bugs in the first place?

Since last update Im getting visual glitches and got a memory error upon shutting down.

And it turns out the last update led to currupted files.

I have the issue that all my shortcuts pinned to Quick Access disappeared. I re-pinned some folders from OneDrive and that worked for about 3 hours then they vanished again and Quick Access only displaying the 4 standard shortcuts for Desktop, Documents, Downloads and Pictures once more.

It can be that the computer is unstable, or the update may be downloaded and installed manually from the internet. Internet is full of PC viruses
