Detroit & Venice, CA —August 03, 2009 —The creative team at Speedshape -- a 3D integrated digital studio -- has partnered with the Chaos Group, creators of V-Ray rendering technology for the 2009 Siggraph Convention. Speedshape provided a series of project assets to Chaos Group Team for use on the company's reel at the 36th International Siggraph Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics, and Interactive Techniques, being held this week in New Orleans, August 3-7.
Projects provided to Chaos Group by Speedshape include motion pieces for Saab, Mustang, Navistar, and Camaro, as well as portions of print campaigns for Navistar, Mustang and Camaro. All assets provided to Chaos Group were created by the Speedshape team using V-Ray state-of-the-art rendering solutions.
"V-Ray, V-Ray RT, and Pdplayer are indispensible tools in our studio," says Speedshape's Director of Software Engineering James Vecore. "V-Ray is still the best renderer on the market for producing photo-real imagery and it gets better with every release. V-Ray RT for 3ds Max has revolutionized our 3D workflow by turning the slow iterative process of lighting and test renders into a simple real-time feedback loop. Pdplayer is an amazing lightweight frame viewer that we utilize every day. When combined, these tools are unstoppable."
"We're delighted that Speedshape has selected the V-Ray Rendering solutions," adds Peter Mitev, CEO of Chaos Group. "Presently rendering technology provided by Chaos Group is an integral part of the studio's 3D production workflow since the capabilities of the V-Ray rendering engine are best suited to their needs. We are very pleased that in our SIGGRAPH 2009 Show Reel will be seen remarkable pieces of commercial broadcast design created by the Speedshape team using V-Ray. "
