Video on Jewelry design

A new YouTube video showing FluidRay RT in jewelry design:

Some Jewelry Renderings

We just added some jewelry renderings to the gallery. All models were directly imported in Rhino .3dm format from PaulKrush.com.

Heterogeneous media and atmospheric scattering

Yet more volumetrics

Another test. The clouds are made by the same OpenVDB heterogeneous grid instanced multiple times at different scales and rotations. The air is an homogeneous medium with atmospheric scattering. The trees and grass are instances as well.


Real-time Heterogeneous Media

First test at heterogeneus media

Heterogeneous media using Dreamworks’ OpenVDB.
Stay tuned…
