This video highlights the MediaSync interop between Autodesk 3ds Max 2013, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. Also featured is a brief look at the iRay GPU rendering engine for entertainment using the Boxx 4920XT workstation and the NVIDIA Quadro/Tesla (Maximus) board-set.
This brief video was shot at SigGraph 2012. In addition to showing the new Autodesk Smoke 2013 at our own booth, I was also in LA demoing some Autodesk applications at the Boxx Technologies booth (including 3ds Max and Backburner). Both GPU and CPU based rendering was performed all week on several new offerings for artists and designers. In the coming weeks I will be expanding this discussions in more depth.
This is a rebroadcast of an M and E webinar where I demonstrated how Autodesk Smoke 2012 can work in tandem with a 3D CGI pipeline for creative finishing.
