Dassault Systèmes has teamed up with Nvidia Corp. and Mental Images® to extend shader technology to every one in the style and digital mock-up review processes. Wider access to shading tools lets you create richer, more detailed simulations that yield high quality 3D renderings that reflect the real world.
Aesthetics help develop emotions with consumers, which contributes to product success and brand recognition. DS V5 Real-Time Rendering solutions, complemented by Nvidia’s FX Composer 2.0 and mental mill™ shader technology from Mental Images enhances accurate aesthetics perception during the design phases. This next-generation of shader function in Catia, Enovia and Delmia, with Nvidia CgFX shader technology and OpenGL, offers high-quality rendering to CAD users and technical artists accustomed to working in the DCC world.
The technology lets you create shaders without the need for programming, opening the door for realistic visualization throughout the entire design process. Nvidia FX Composer 2.0 delivers shader editing and integrated analysis tools. It supports shader libraries, plug-ins, and scripting. Mental mill Artist Edition from Mental Images lets technical artists and designers create custom shaders for V5 with an intuitive graphical interface.
Mental mill is a shader creation tool for all levels of expertise. A familiar graph editing paradigm handles complex shaders without programming skills. Mental mill is based on MetaSL™, a meta shader language developed by Mental Images. Shaders written in MetaSL are independent of platforms and rendering algorithms.
