GTC Silicon Valley-2019: Adding GPU Acceleration to Pixar Renderman
GTC Silicon Valley-2019 ID:S9767:Adding GPU Acceleration to Pixar Renderman
We'll discuss photo-realistic rendering in modern movie production and present the path that led us to leverage GPUs and CPUs in a new scalable rendering architecture. Learn about RenderMan XPU, Pixar's next-gen physically based production path tracer, and how we solve the problem of heterogeneous compute using a shared code base. We'll also discuss our partnership with NVIDIA to create the technology to enable art and creativity in future feature animation and live-action visual effects blockbusters.
