Thiago Costa—Creator of Lagoa Multi-Physics Platform—Showcases New Cloud-based Interactive Multi-Optics 3D Renderer and Real-Time Collaboration Platform
Los Angeles, Calif.,— SIGGRAPH— August 7th 2012— TeamUp, a newly formed company built on the guiding principle that 3D should be accessible to everyone, everywhere—today announced its Multi-Optics™ renderer and real-time 3D collaboration. The TeamUp platform is completely Cloud-powered, so customers have access to the fastest machines available and do not have to download, install, license or setup anything before working with 3D content.
TeamUp is showing its BETA version at the AMD booth ( Booth #709) at SIGGRAPH 2012 in Los Angeles, August 7-9. For more information about TeamUp at SIGGRAPH visit the TeamUp website at: http://www.getteamup.com.
Thiago Costa, co-founder of TeamUP, and founder of the critically acclaimed physics platform, Lagoa Multi-Physics, said, “We decided early on that TeamUp would offer a fundamentally collaborative experience. Creating content is already a collaboration between several parties, but the tools and workflows are all tied to desktops, render farms and so on. Sharing projects in a group effort requires a huge overhead in the creation process,” said Costa. “3D rendering is traditionally the slowest and most complex process. The back and forth with clients and peers can become tedious and costs a lot of time through miscommunications and scheduling consensus. We built TeamUp to truly improve this experience, so creative teams and their clients can see the same render live, edit and make decisions in real-time on multiple devices, and arrive at the look they want for any 3D asset.”
Arno Zinke, TeamUp co-founder and the scientist behind the Multi-Physics technology explained, "One of our techniques to achieve such high quality results is to take physical objects and measure their many optical properties to come up with an accurate representation. This way we can make hair, sand, cloth, metals, volumetrics, and many complex materials look real,” said Zinke. “Besides providing a constantly growing library of materials, users can also create their own materials from these fundamental properties."
Dov Amihod, TeamUp chief technology officer adds, “Providing such a high quality rendering and collaboration platform to such a large audience is quite exciting, and we’re one of the only companies offering this kind of approach,” said Amihod. “I can’t wait to see what our customers will come up with,” Added Amihod.
