  • Solaris

    Commercial Mac Windows Linux Website

    Solaris brings a new context called LOPS, or lighting operators, that brings native USD [Universal Scene Description] support to Houdini to allow for comprehensive lookdev, layout and lighting workflows.

    • Solaris provides a visual editor for working with USD.
    • Solaris supports a wide variety of lookdev, layout and lighting tasks.
    • Solaris is a new context in Houdini Core, Houdini FX, Houdini Indie and Houdini Apprentice - not a separate application.
    • A new USD-compliant renderer called SideFX Karma Render was announced for Solaris/USD
    • This new renderer works with Hydra for fast IPR.
    • This will be a fast CPU-based renderer with a GPU version of it being developed for a future release.
    • Solaris also works with other Hydra-compliant renderers such as RenderMan.

  • darktable

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    darktable is a virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers: it manages your digital negatives in a database and lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable. it also enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

    This project tries to fill the gap between the many excellent existing free raw converters and image management tools (such as Small UFRaw iconUFRaw or Small F-Spot iconF-Spot). The user interface is built around efficient caching of image metadata and mipmaps, all stored in a database. The user will always be able to interact, even if the full resolution image is not yet loaded.

    All editing is fully non-destructive and only operates on cached image buffers for display. The full image is only converted during export. the frontend is written in gtk+/cairo, the database uses sqlite3, raw image loading is done using libraw, hdr, exr and low dynamic range are supported through imagemagick (magickcore). the core operates completely on floating point values, so darktable can not only be used for photography but also for scientifically acquired images or output of renderers (high dynamic range).
