Pulse* To Unveil New Products, Technologies at SIGGRAPH 2001
(August 01, 2001)
At SIGGRAPH 2001 later this month, Pulse* (Booth #1025), will announce a suite of new products and technologies for 3D animation and online media.
Among the solutions Pulse will debut and demonstrate at the show are: "Virtual Cloning:" Pulse's new virtual personality technology suite dramatically extends the Pulse Animation Studio, adding text-to-speech, automatic lip-synching and automated digital image capture/conversion capabilities. In combination with the new Pulse 5.0, the virtual personality technologies now enable the creation of interactive, 3D photoreal virtual counterparts to real and fictitious characters and people in less than five minutes, rather than the hours or days previously required. SIGGRAPH attendees are invited to personally undergo virtual cloning in the Pulse booth.
Pulse Sonifier*: The first plug-and-play solution for integrating audio on the Web, Pulse Sonifier features an elegant interface that's easy enough for novice site builders, yet powerful enough to satisfy sophisticated Webmasters. Built-in libraries feature thousands of sounds in dozens of categories. Literally click on a sound - vocal cues, musical scores, audio logos and navigational sound effects, among many others - drag it to the target object or area of the page, and Web Maestro transparently integrates it with the existing code on the site.
Pulse 5.0: Pulse will be launching Version 5.0 of its award-winning technology for creating 3D interactive characters, products and environments at the show. Version 5.0 enhancements include anti-aliasing and mipmapping, Pentium*4 optimization, and file sizes up to 60 percent smaller than with previous versions (typically between 50 - 100k).
Maya Support: At SIGGRAPH, Pulse will be demonstrating a Beta version of its MAYA exporter, supporting the latest version of Alias|Wavefront's Maya 3D animation and visual effects software. 3D objects, environments and characters created using the Maya platform can now be exported directly into Pulse and onto the Web.
