April 2021 - From Garment Design to CFX simulation pipeline in 30 mins with the Carbon Garment Processor.
Over the last 12 months we have been adding new features to Carbon that build into a workflow supporting
the import of garments from design packages into the CFX simulation workflow.
Today we are officially launching that workflow - with its own web page and tutorials.
Supporting both the need for rapid deployment of believable Hero character pre-visualization and the explosion of lower budget episodic content.
The ability to rapidly bring garments from design into the CFX workflow with simulation AND rendering, is very empowering.

Check out the 10 sec video below and the dedicated Carbon Garment Processor page here.

 

April 2021 - Carbon Edge Collision was refined working closely with a studio and academics
to develop a next gen hair simulation that includes robust support for curly hair.
This is a work in progress, but they have kindly allowed us to share this short
teaser video below, which I think you will agree is pretty impressive in quality and performance.
To emphasise, they are only using standard Carbon features.

700 guides, 70 clumps/cloths/constraints, all guides colliding with each other, themselves and head.
0.5 FPS on 32 cores
