Pixar Animation Studios releases RenderMan 21
[permalink] 22.07.2016

Pixar RenderMan 20Pixar Animation Studios released version 21 of its Academy Award-winning RenderMan software. For the first time, RenderMan includes the same shaders and lights used at Pixar, providing artists with access to the same tools for lighting and look development used on Finding Dory and its accompanying short film Piper. Also new to the release is the Pixar Surface Collection, an expansive catalog of physically-based materials and lights allowing artists to quickly create images of the highest levels of quality. RenderMan now comes fully loaded with all the creative options demanded by the shading artists at Pixar. This latest release also represents new advances in the RIS rendering framework which has been tested and proven in recent VFX films such as The Jungle Book and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, establishing RenderMan as the most advanced and versatile rendering platform available. A streamlined UI and GPU accelerated denoising are amongst many additional new features. RenderMan is with 64-bit versions of Mac OS, Windows, and Linux, as well as with versions 2015, 2016, and 2016.5 of Autodesk's Maya, and with version 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 of The Foundry's KATANA. Compatibility with Side Effects Houdini version 15.5, version 2.77+ of the Blender Foundation's Blender software, and Maxon's Cinema4D version 17 will be announced shortly. [source]

Waves Scheps Parallel Particles plug-in
[permalink] 19.07.2016

Waves Scheps Parallel Particles plug-in video Waves Audio is now shipping the Waves Scheps Parallel Particles plug-in, part of the Waves Signature Series. Created in collaboration with Grammy-winning producer/mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Adele, Metallica, Jay Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Rey), Scheps Parallel Particles captures Andrew's know-how and vast experience in the form of four easy-to-use controls, each representing one of Andrew's go-to mixing processes: Sub is a harmonic generator that creates lows and adds sub frequencies that were never there before; Air focuses on those elusive air frequencies and brings them to the forefront; Bite is designed to create sonic vitality and emotion; and Thick adds solid body to the signal, evening out the lower mids and midrange, creating a feeling similar to that of a microphone being a little bit closer, or the room ambience being darker.
