Lightworks partners with AMD
SHEFFIELD, UK (26 July 2012) - Lightworks, the world's leading supplier of rendering solutions for developers of advanced 3D computer graphics software, is pleased to announce the company’s partnership with AMD.
As part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to offer a wide range of visualisation technologies, Lightworks has been working with AMD to provide capability for stereoscopic 3D technology. Lightworks already provides this capability within its Lightworks Author product where customers are able to enhance the perceived realism within their 3D models. This capability has now been developed further to incorporate hemispherical backgrounds within Lightworks Real time thereby increasing the depth, realism and involvement in the model.
Following on from the work carried out with AMD, Lightworks will be demonstrating the capabilities of stereoscopic 3D technology within the Lightworks Artisan product at this year’s Siggraph Computer Graphics Exhibition in Los Angeles.
Visitors to the Lightworks booth will be able to see the improved performance which AMD FirePro graphics cards give to the rendering of stereoscopic 3D models within real-time.
Dave Forrester, CEO at Lightworks, commented; “At Lightworks we’re always striving to give our customers additional functionality that will help them to increase the realism of their work. Our partnership with AMD means we can now demonstrate greater perceived realism within 3D models to make them come alive for users.”
Robert Jamieson, ISV Manager EMEA Workstation Graphics, added; “We are always pleased when key ISV’s implement technology with our AMD FirePro professional graphics cards to enhance the user experience of 3D. Lightworks is an important ISV as their technology is used by many other ISVs in diverse fields in the professional space”
