The introduction of Enlighten software allows designers to create realistic virtual sets and augmented reality experiences

Vizrt, the leading provider of story production tools and virtual sets for the digital media industry, has partnered with Geomerics, an ARM company, to use Enlighten software to provide designers with new tools to create higher quality virtual graphics.

Enlighten, the industry’s most advanced dynamic global illumination technology, now delivers real-time indirect lighting in Vizrt’s 3D design system, Viz Artist. Enlighten empowers Vizrt customers to bring virtual studios to life and transform the user experience.

All the Enlighten tools are integrated in the Vizrt production workflow, so designers can both save time and have access to an amazing creative kit for visually stunning real-time virtual assets.

“Global illumination is the most important contributing factor in the creation of the cinematic quality graphics that today’s consumers expect. Integrating Enlighten into the next generation of Viz Artist will bring unprecedented dynamic lighting capabilities to the media industry,” said Chris Porthouse, vice president of gaming middleware, ARM. “By computing high-quality indirect lighting, Enlighten empowers artists to light virtual studios in seconds, significantly enhancing workflow.”

“After enabling Allegorithmic’s substances for defining materials in Viz Artist we have added Enlighten for real-time global illumination to enable cinematic quality in our real-time renderer,” said Francois Laborie, Vizrt Chief Commercial Officer. “Our partnership with ARM gives media companies a tool for creating real-time, photorealistic virtual graphics integrated to the live production chain.”

Viz Artist with Enlighten is being previewed this week at NAB. Contact sales@geomerics.com if you would like a meeting.
