LightWorks To Preview Sketch Rendering Technology at SIGGRAPH(August 09, 2001)
The LightWorks Sketch Rendering product enables architects, product designers and 3D modellers to instantly create impressionistic and stylised renderings of their designs.
There is a wide selection of different styles available for use, to cover every possibility, enabling software vendors to provide end-users with a solution that meets their individual needs. LightWorks Sketch Rendering can be tightly integrated into 3D design applications in a short space of time, typically only a few days!
Woll Newall, LightWorks Product Manager commented "LightWorks Sketch Rendering is a true 3D impressionistic renderer which works directly from the 3D model, enabling the creation of non-photorealistic and stylised images and animations at any stage of the modelling process." He added, "It's the solution that users have long been searching for."
LightWorks Sketch Rendering is available as an add-on module to the LightWorks SDK and comes with a customisable interactive user-interface to facilitate its integration into the application. LightWorks Sketch Rendering offers users yet more flexibility by supporting EPix output for use in the Piranesi application from Informatix.
Preview at SIGGRAPH This exciting new technology will be unveiled at this year's Siggraph Computer Graphics exhibition in Los Angeles, where visitors to the LightWork Design booth (1659) will be treated to a demonstration of the technology in action. Initial discussions about LightWorks Sketch Rendering have been greeted with much enthusiasm by existing customers and the Company are confident that this will also be the case at Siggraph.
For those unable to attend Siggraph, some images created using LightWorks Sketch Rendering can be found on the Company's website at: www.lightwork.com/products/lightworks/Promotional/SIGGRAPHbrochure.pdf
