Avid NAB 2015
Avid came to Sabertooth Productions to create a large number of new product renders to debut at NAB 2015. Detailed CAD files of Avid's products provided the starting place for each of these projects. Sabertooth utilized The Foundry's MODO to bring in the CAD data, frame the shots, add realistic materials and render out the scenes.
Some of the images were rendered in OTOY's Octane GPU rendering engine. MODO has a very nice Octane plug-in that allows you to easy construct Octane materials in MODO's schematic viewport. Octane performed exceptionally well and was able to render out 4K images very quickly using a Titan X GPU.
The images were rendered at very high print resolutions and prepped in Photoshop with separate layers for shadows, reflections and lights so Avid's in-house Photoshop artists could finalize the imagery for web, broadcast and packaging delivery.
