Key Strengths of Softimage:
A Powerful Companion to Maya
* An ideal companion to Autodesk Maya software, Autodesk Softimage software is a high-performance, comprehensive 3D application that enables artists to use intuitive, nondestructive workflows to create stunning character animation and effects. Featuring a unique, multi-threaded GigaCore architecture, and innovative tools like ICE (Interactive Creative Environment) and Face Robot, Softimage extends a Maya Pipeline with the ability to more quickly and easily create massively detailed simulated effects, advanced character rigs, and lip-synced facial setups.
Node-Based Interactive Creative Environment (ICE)
* ICE is a powerful platform for creating custom tools, visual effects, and advanced character rigs without the need to script a line of code. Featuring a flexible, intuitive, visual programming interface, ICE is designed to help artists be more efficient and to enable them to more easily explore new creative ideas.
GigaCore High-Performance 3D Engine
* Softimage GigaCore is a next-generation 3D engine that powers the Softimage creative application. Capable of rendering objects with billions of sub-division surface polygons, GigaCore is highly multi-threaded and optimized to take advantage of the latest 64-bit, multi-core CPUs so that artists can efficiently manipulate extremely complex characters and scenes involving millions of polygons and thousands of animated objects.
