New Software With Integrated NVIDIA iray Simplifies 3D Rendering and Animation

Bunkspeed PRO™ 2012 combines the best of our previous Bunkspeed SHOT PRO™ and Bunkspeed MOVE PRO™ into a single integrated system featuring the NVIDIA® iray® 2 raytrace engine, a full keyframe animation system, and cloud based asset library, simplifying the 3D rendering and animation process, and shattering the barrier to create “Hollywood” quality content.

Bunkspeed®, a leading developer of 3D rendering and animation technology, today introduces the Bunkspeed PRO Suite 2012. Bunkspeed PRO™ Suite 2012 that builds on Bunkspeed SHOT™ and Bunkspeed MOVE™ with powerful new features and work flow capabilities that are ideally suited for industrial designers, engineers, marketers, architects and any 3D creative professionals who want to take their images and animations to a whole new level.

With this release, we have merged our previous software Bunkspeed SHOT PRO™ and Bunkspeed Move PRO™, and integrated NVIDIA iray version 2, into a single “PRO Suite” simplifying our offering and providing our professional customers with significant additional value. “Our entire product line is now based on the same core technology, user interface, and the NVIDIA iray® engine, allowing the user to move seamlessly from Bunkspeed SHOT™, to Bunkspeed MOVE™ to the Bunkspeed PRO™ Suite as skills and requirements increase.” says Philip Lunn, Bunkspeed founder and CEO. “Sophisticated yet easy key-frame animation capability is now fully enabled in Bunkspeed PRO™ Suite 2012, allowing the iray® engine to really shine. When rendering animation, you don’t have to think about global illumination quality, the number of ray bounces or amount of photons, etc., you simply get consistent render quality from user to user and frame to frame, never possible before. In addition, we’ve moved our asset library to an online database with individual user credentials, dramatically reducing the download size and allowing our users to get new content as it becomes available. Our customers are finding that a new, more efficient workflow arises from using Bunkspeed PRO. "Bunkspeed PRO™ has enabled me to create visuals with great speed and high quality, replacing my Maya / Mental Ray rendering workflow almost completely..." Richard Thompson, RichRenders.com
