    NaNny fixes over-brights turned black

    April 9, 2011, 7:58 am
    Fnord Software has a new free plug-in, NaNny, that fixes over-bright pixels turned black in OpenEXR, TIFF, and other float files inside After Effects. Float space is a strange place, where bugs can result in NaN (Not a Number), inf (infinity), and negative pixel values that can wreck havoc with image processing. Pictured here is the sample EXR with a blur filter applied; without NaNny you just get the black block.

      “BRAAAM!”: The Sound that Invaded the Hollywoo

      December 8, 2016, 1:24 pm
      You walk into a local multiplex a few minutes after the lights have dimmed. You find your seat to the first trailer, some confection involving superheroes or zombies. As the light flickers over you, strings churn from the speakers, interrupted at certain intervals by a massive blast of indistinguishable brass, like an alphorn next to an amplifier.

      Efficient Rendering of Heterogeneous Poly Disperse

      December 8, 2016, 10:39 am
      We address the challenge of efficiently rendering massive assemblies of grains within a forward path-tracing framework. Previous approaches exist for accelerating high-order scattering for a limited, and static, set of granular materials, often requiring scene-dependent pre-computation. We significantly expand the admissible regime of granular materials by considering heterogeneous and dynamic granular mixtures with spatially varying grain concentrations, pack rates, and sizes.
