Autodesk Brings 2D and 3D Closer Together
Another big announcement was the porting of the Inferno visual effects system to Linux, which Autodesk says brings a 5x performance boost over older SGI machines such as the Onyx 2. “Up until now we haven’t had a workstation that was capable of delivering an experience that was on par with some of our legacy systems,” said Roberts. Also announced at NAB were new 10-bit versions of Autodesk’s entry-level Flint vfx and Smoke editing systems, enabling them to fit better into 10-bit broadcast pipelines.
