Singapore hosts the first Siggraph Asia: Chaos Group - VRAY By Ko Maruyama
2008 marked the first ACM SIGGRAPH Conference in Asia.  Almost 2 years in the making, the Asian SIGGRAPH is host to computer artists of all kinds.  The expo floor showcases some of the most compelling new software for animators, including glimpses of software to come. Chaos Group has some new software coming up in 2009 that they showed off in Singapore.

Chaos Group Ltd. was established in 1997, mainly as a provider of 3D design and animation services. After working for half a decade on projects commissioned by renown Bulgarian studios and international studios stationed in Bulgaria it was clear that there was need for a product, which would at least partially overcome the hardware and software constraints existing at the time on the international visualization market.

After a period of intensive experimentation and research, Chaos Group Ltd's team of highly profiled programmers launched the V-Ray rendering engine, which is among our forerunner products.

At Siggraph they showed off PDPlayer.  Pdplayer is an advanced image-sequence player supporting multi-layered sequence playback.  It is officially released and is available for immediate purchase and download!

Layered sequence playback
Realtime interactions
External device output
Industry standard file format support including HDR, EXR, CIN, DPX, SGI, TGA and more
