Softimage Announces Softimage|XSI 7 Powered by ICE

Multi-Threaded GigaCore II

Powering the ICE platform in SOFTIMAGE|XSI 7 software will be the GigaCore II, a parallel processing engine that will deliver optimum performance on any modern workstation. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of multi-core workstations, the Softimage ICE platform will directly scale with the number and speed of processing cores available.

"The first time I built an ICE particle compound in SOFTIMAGE|XSI 7, I was amazed," said Fabio Leporelli, senior lighting and fur technical director at Peerless Camera Company, Ltd. (UK). "What used to take hours, or days of tedious scripting, I was able to create in minutes with the Softimage ICE platform. I never imagined it would be possible to create such complex particle simulations so easily, and I was only using about 5% of the processor power available. Thank you Softimage."

SOFTIMAGE ICE Particles and Deformations

Softimage will offer numerous pre-built, production-ready ICE ’compounds’ for particle-based effects and deformations that will allow artists to jump right into production. Unlike tools in other 3D systems, these pre-built compounds are open, and will allow users to examine and learn how they work, and even modify them. Customers who create their own ICE compounds can share them in their facility or with the global community on SOFTIMAGE|NET, in either an open XML format, or a locked binary file to protect their Intellectual Property (IP).
