Visual effects and animation production are a perfect storm of creativity and technology. The final results are usually amazing but hide months of hard work by smart and talented people.
With its highly efficient, collaborative approach, Foundry’s Katana gives artists the creative scope and scalability to meet the needs of the most demanding look development and lighting projects.
Over the past three years, Foundry has immensely reduced the time to the first pixel through identifying and optimizing code throughout Katana that would block scalable performance. Most recently, Foundry worked closely with Intel to optimize the performance of its latest Katana 3.5 by switching from single- to multithreaded processing using Intel technologies.
Obtain further insights on this optimization effort via this whitepaper, and find out how it increased performance up to 30x:
