The V-Ray render engine is an award-winning solution for CGI that was developed by Chaos Group. V-Ray is capable of advanced visual effects such as caustics and refraction, making it particularly popular with artists and designers who need to create and render complex illustrative models and make photo-realistic visualisations. Many studios across the world use V-Ray for rendering including Method Studios, Scanline VFX and Pixomondo.
Arnold, the 3D ray tracing rendering application, used by animators, studios and 3D artists the world over. Arnold has established its credible reputation in the industry over the last few years as an advanced ray tracing renderer, built for the demands of feature-length animation and visual effects.
Nuke is a node-based compositing toolkit by Foundry. It offers low hardware requirements, operating system support and support for various industry standards. Nuke’s node graph and resolution-independent processing gives the toolkit both power and performance.
