PipelineFX Announces Support for 3Delight Renderer(February 26, 2008)
3Delight is a fast, high quality, RenderMan®-compliant renderer designed to produce photorealistic images in demanding production environments. Some of its features include ray tracing, global illumination (including photon mapping, final gathering and high dynamic range lighting and rendering), realistic motion blur, depth of field, complete geometry support (including efficient rendering of hair and fur), programmable shaders, quality antialiasing and antialiased shadow maps. Advanced features include Ri filtering, network caching and highly customizable workflow. It is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
Qube!'s Maya jobtype supports 3Delight as a Maya-compliant renderer. An artist simply chooses ?3Delight as the renderer within Maya and fills in the submission dialog. The render machines launch Maya and utilize the plug-in 3Delight renderer to render the scene. Artists can then easily manage their 3Delight jobs through the Qube! GUI, the standard artist interface to a Qube!-based render farm.
?Were excited that 3Delight users will finally have the full benefit of a tight integration with Qube!, said Aghiles Kheffache, CTO of Singapore-based DNA Research. ?We love Qube!s interface that provides flexibility and configurability. Qube! is the first product we recommend to our clients looking for a render farm management solution.
DNA Research develops rendering solutions for the demanding CG film production pipeline environment. For more information about DNA Research and 3Delight, www.3delight.com.
"The addition of 3Delight support provides Qube! customers with a high-quality and cost-effective option for film quality rendering," said Troy Brooks, CEO of PipelineFX. ?DNA Research's support for 3Delight as a Maya-compliant plug-in renderer makes it incredibly easy for artists to access this extremely powerful renderer, and Qube! support makes it that much easier to distribute those jobs across a farm.
