Using gaming software to produce animation
The use of Unity and Unreal engines, primarily known for their gaming features, has expanded into the world of cinematic animation. This allows for a more efficient pipeline that allocates more effort to the creative art direction of shots and animation quality. The powerful Nvidia RTX technology in the GPUs has enabled even 4K frames to be rendered in seconds, making the process faster and more cost-effective. Pixeldust has adopted Unreal Engine as its prime real-time rendering solution alongside Maya Redshift, an enhanced GPU rendering engine. The studio continues to benefit from these technologies, and Unreal Engine 5 Lumen and Pathtracing technology are now the industry-leading rendering solutions for animation, VFX, and virtual production.
