Going Rental!
Wednesday, 25 September 2013 14:01


A long awaited change for our production market is here:


Many of you have asked for the possibility to rent production software and finally Adobe, Autodesk, ChaosGroup, The Foundry and Massive Software have made some of their software accessible for rent.

Rentals are perfect for covering production peaks. Maybe you are a start-up and want to use rentals from the ground up to periodize your investment cost across the year.


Article: Buy or Rent Software: What’s Best for Your Small Business?


For those of you that already have the base tools for normal workload covered - now it's possible to expand/contract your production pipeline to be more cost efficient by renting tools only for the period you really need them.

We have noticed that Quarterly rentals are the most common request and it is what most of the developers are covering.

NUKE 8.0 comes loaded with new features and improvements offering something for everyone, whether an expertised NUKE artist, those thinking about taking the plunge or pipeline developers, this year NUKE becomes more intuitive, fast, powerful and open than ever before.

With its broad range of highly desirable feature additions, NUKE 8.0 is the perfect tool to get your job done, be it in film, commercials, episodic or marketing and advertising. Find out more from NUKE Product Manager Jon Wadelton in our Sneak Peek video.



Jon Wadelton, NUKE Product Manager at The Foundry comments:

“This version of NUKE is very exciting because I truly believe we’ve made NUKE accessible to users of other compositing applications. Additions like the new dope sheet, text tool and user interfaces such as the color wheel will provide a familiar environment. NUKE is now so big and so powerful, we can’t wait to release later this year and see what people think.”

V-Ray for SketchUp 2.0 now available
Tuesday, 17 September 2013 08:36

Product Overview

V-Ray for SketchUp provides designers with faster rendering, better lighting tools, and the ability to create and visualize complex scenes. This designer-friendly rendering solution for SketchUp features dramatic improvements to visualization workflow (V-Ray RT®), image based lighting quality (V-Ray Dome Light), and a designer’s ability to quickly manage complex scenes with highly detailed models (V-Ray Proxy).

V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp is compatible with SketchUp 8, SketchUp Make 2013 and SketchUp Pro 2013.


V-Ray for SketchUp Key Features

V-Ray for SketchUp has a rich set of features, making high quality visualization fast and easy. Here are some of the key features:


V-Ray RT CPU & GPU - This revolutionary rendering engine streamlines scene setup and provides instant visual feedback directly in SketchUp for quicker design, material, and lighting decisions. It’s fast and seamless to transition between V-Ray RT and production rendering.


Dome Light - Creates simple, artifact-free image-based lighting using importance sampling of HDR images. This technique greatly optimizes light tracing and global illumination precision.


V-Ray Proxy - Manages scene memory and efficiently renders large amounts of geometry to increase detail and complexity in scenes. V-Ray Proxy objects are dynamically loaded and unloaded at render time, which saves vital RAM resources.


Please note:

V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp is licensed with a hardware key (dongle).

Users who purchased a new V-Ray for SketchUp license between April 15, 2013 and September 15, 2013 will be eligible for a free upgrade.
