When choosing the right rendering engine there is a lot to consider, including what type it is—3D, 2D, realtime, non-realtime, custom—and the technology, algorithms, and features it offers.
In this session, Tangent Animation talks about one of them: the Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit, which this studio of animation and film production pros has been using for some of its creative storytelling, including the animated sci-fi feature Next Gen, streaming on Netflix.
Join Tangent Sr. Software Engineer Stefan Werner and Intel Sr. Director of Rendering and Visualization Jim Jeffers to learn about:
- How the studio is taking full advantage of Intel® oneAPI tools to create a production-quality solution for its projects
- How it is incorporating three Render Kit tools—Intel® Embree, Intel® Open Image Denoise, and Intel® Open Volume Kernel Library—into Blender
- Tangent Lab’s latest studio asset management service, LoUPE—a fresh take on a cloud-based animation production pipeline created for artists, by artists
- What’s comihttps://www.tangent-labs.com/ng next for the studio
