LightWork Design (http://www.lightworkdesign.com), a supplier of
rendering solutions for developers of 3D computer graphics software,
will be exhibiting at this year’s inaugural SIGGRAPH Asia Computer
Graphics Exhibition in Singapore from Dec. 11-13.
LightWorks will launch the latest version of their Studio Edition,
2.0. LightWorks Studio Edition, or SE, brings the latest LightWorks
functionality such as Ambient Occlusion and Complex Reflectance
Shaders to the SE product suite.
LightWorks SE will be used in a client/server environment, to
demonstrate the benefits of off loading the rendering process. Data
from SE can be passed to either local or remote network machines, and
the result streamed progressively or in a prescribed image format
(such as bitmap or JPEG) back to the client, freeing up local
Progressive Rendering, available for both LightWorks and LightWorks
SE customers, will be announced and presented ahead of its general
release in early 2009. Progressive Rendering provides a flexible,
dynamic user experience, removing the need for frequent resetting of
the render scene, according to the folks at LightWork Design.
LightWorks will also be previewing its new hardware rendering
technology which is currently in development. This exploits the
latest in hardware/GPU functionality.
