NVIDIA Iray “Foodscape” VFX Breakdown
NVIDIA approached Hinge Digital to road test 0x1’s Iray plugin for Maya, and we were delighted to put it through its paces with a new original project. Our goal was to create a fanciful scene showcasing appetizing organic materials using 0x1’s Iray plugin for Maya, and we were more than happy with the end result. Iray’s highly optimized GPU acceleration allowed our artists to interactively tune both lighting and shaders in scene. Iray’s powerful MDL and LPE features made material development and render pass output very customizable. Its ability to also render on our CPU render farm gave us additional flexibility. Even though it was still in beta at the time, the software worked surprisingly smoothly. We would recommend Iray and the Iray for Maya plugin from 0x1 for anyone looking for a powerful and versatile real-time rendering solution. We are pleased with the usability of the software and look forward to putting Iray to the test again in our next production.
