OTOY Bolsters OctaneRender Integration to Nuke, Houdini, MotionBuilder, Unreal Engine 4, and Digital Molecular Matter Engine

August 21, 2014

OTOY detailed expanded support for its OctaneRender software, giving artists and animators more choice in where and how they work and accelerating content creation by bringing true-to-life rendering to four 3D applications.

According to a release, along with previously announced plugins for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects, OctaneRender plugins are also in development for The Foundry's Nuke compositing software, Side Effects Software's Houdini 3D animation software, Autodesk's MotionBuilder 3D character animation software, and Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4.

OTOY also revealed further details of the content pipeline that will allow artists, animators, designers and engineers to capture, create, publish, and display their own holographic videos by harnessing light field rendering technology in OctaneRender Cloud Edition in the months to come.

"OTOY has achieved the impossible task of simplifying the complex science of true-to-life rendering down to a series of mouse clicks," said Vik Sohal, co-founder of Pixelux. "With the integration of Pixelux's Digital Molecular Matter Engine into OctaneRender Cloud Edition, we're providing the same friendly simplicity to finite- element-based destruction, letting content creators apply the intricate math behind the material properties and object interactions that make up the real world without needing to be simulation experts themselves."

"Working with a growing list of exceptional partners, OTOY continues to make OctaneRender more accessible to content creators everywhere while adding functionality," said Jules Urbach, Founder and CEO, OTOY. "Holographic video is an exceedingly elegant format that simplifies the production and sharing of incredible 3D experiences while holographic light field data opens the door to extraordinarily sophisticated, yet easy to implement simulations of physics and audio, and streamlined game and 3D application development. OTOY's holographic video pipeline is flexible not only for how it allows content creators to work, but also for the myriad of options content creators will have in harnessing holographic data to make their work easier."

OTOY is a cloud graphics company.
