Random Control (Arion & fryrender) announce a new (upcoming) line of interoperability plugins
for presumably their Arion and their fryrender renderers both.
Funny thing is, the first one they will be releasing will be the Softimage version
(while such plugins traditionally are released for other software first).
A completely new line of plugins is coming: The RandomControl LIVE plugins.
RandomControl LIVE is a line of products that fully integrate our technology in the modeling package.
The first modeling package that we are proud to support is Autodesk Softimage. Our plugin supports Render Region, native rendering of animations, native Softimage frame buffer as well as a cool RandomControl LIVE viewport with realtime feedback.
We also have fully integrated our material system into Softimage interface, with nodal support for BSDF layers, bitmaps etc. Everything is Softimage-like and straightforward to use!
Pricing and licensing policies will be presented when the LIVE plugins are released. Owners of an Arion or fryrender license, will be offered the LIVE plugin of their choice for free.
