Katana 3.0 to ship with 3Delight
[permalink] 28.07.2017

F The Foundry KATANA 2 screenshotoundry announced that the newly redesigned and Nodal Scene Interface-powered 3Delight will be available as a free plug-in for Katana 3.0 interactive renders when it ships later this year. 3Delight is powered by NSI - which is both nodal and hierarchical - allowing for fully interactive live rendering. 3Delight promises to refine look development and lighting tasks to enhance the artist experience. Unique workflows like the plug-in's light mixer technology allows artists to render final quality images and adjust lighting interactively, while the edits are fed back directly to lights or groups of lights in Katana's GafferThree lighting tools. The fully OSL-based shading engine is compatible with both Katana and Maya, allowing for the direct transfer of look development files between these DCC apps. The geometry-based lighting frees an artist to execute compelling lighting with straightforward real world techniques. Katana 3.0 with 3Delight will be showcased at SIGGRAPH 2017 as part of a public beta. [source]

Now available: RealFlow for Cinema 4D 2.0
[permalink] 28.07.2017

RealFlow Cinema 4D 2.0 plug-in plugin Second release of Next Limit Technologies' Cinema 4D fluid dynamics plug-in comes loaded with lots of new features and improvements. The most important novelty is the Dyverso multi-physics solver with three completely new materials (granular, viscous, viscoelastic) and two deformers for rigid and elastic body. All these different materials are able to interact with each other, and all fluid and material types can now be simulated via the GPU for a 3-4x speed boost. RealFlow for Cinema 4D is also even tighter integrated and there are connections to MoGraph, Hair, Takes, Thinking Particles and PyroCluster. The Character module's Point Cache tag lets users bake PLA animation from the plugin's Rigid and Elastic deformers, for example. A wide range of render engines is also supported. [source]

Autodesk Maya 2018 ships
[permalink] 27.07.2017

Autodesk Maya 2018 video animation worgflow Autodesk Maya 2018 has arrived. The new version comes with enhanced workflows across the board, including enhanced modeling tools with Topological Symmetry support, single top-level symmetry control, and vector displacement map stamps. An improved shape authoring workflow offers a smoother experience, including the ability to perform pose-space deformation on rigged characters. New tools for working with UVs allow artists to stack similar UV shells, automatically redistribute UVs for even spacing, and constrain the movement of UVs along edges. Animators will benefit from updates to the recently added Time Editor and overhauled, faster-to-use Graph Editor. With 64-bit time precision, Maya 2018 adds timecode improvements with new non-integer framerates, NTSC drop and non-drop formats, allowing users to use standard capture formats without having to convert data. For the first time, rigid-body dynamics can be combined with procedural instancing, through simple and fast-to-manage dynamic properties and constraints over large numbers of instances. With just a few clicks, users can create complex arrangements of animated instances that can act dynamically, collide with each other, be bounced around by dynamic forces, and be constrained. Maya 2018 also welcomes Arnold 5 to the family with all the full features as its built-in renderer, introducing better samplers, improved speed, and simplified workflows. Arnold 5 also comes with new, more physically-accurate shaders, such as a standard surface shader, a standard hair shader, and a volume shader. Maya 2018 also includes hundreds of bug fixes to deliver a better overall experience. [source]

Foundry Nuke 11 video Foundry launched Nuke and Hiero 11.0, the next major release for the Nuke family of products including Nuke, NukeX, Nuke Studio, Hiero and HieroPlayer. With this release, the Nuke family is being updated to VFX Platform 2017 -- which includes several major updates to key libraries used within Nuke, including Python, Pyside and Qt -- and also introduces a new type of group node which offers a powerful new collaborative workflow for sharing work among artists. Live Groups referenced in other scripts automatically update when a script is loaded, without the need to render intermediate stages. Nuke Studio's intelligent background rendering is now available in Nuke and NukeX. The Frame Server takes advantage of available resource on your local machine, enabling you to continue working while rendering is happening in the background. The LensDistortion node in NukeX has been completely revamped, with added support for fisheye and wide-angle lenses and the ability to use multiple frames to produce better results. It is now also GPU-enabled, as is the new GPU accelerated disk caching in Nuke Studio that allows users to cache part or all of a sequence to disk for smoother playback of more complex sequences.
