Codemasters and RTT announce tools partnership

Publisher and 3D rendering specialist to share modelling and visualisation technology

UK publisher Codemasters has announced a partnership with automobile and aviation visualisation specialist Realtime Technology.

Realtime Technology's DeltaGen and RealTrace tools and Codemasters' DIRT and Race Driver engine EGO will be shared between the two companies.

"Both companies share common goals, including a passion for technology excellence and attention to detail and quality,” commented Bryan Marshall, chief technical officer at Codemasters.

"These goals are demonstrated equally in such executions as the beauty of realtime ray-traced light clusters in RTT’s DeltaGen software and the mesmerising race action and environmental detail in our own Race Driver: GRID. Any collaboration with RTT that delivers advantageous results for our development pipeline will be immensely valuable."

Realtime Technology's automobile clients include Audi, BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Dodge and Porsche.

"We are really happy to enter this partnership with Codemasters", said Ludwig A. Fuchs, co-founder and member of the RTT AG Management Board.

"The cooperation is of mutual interest and benefit. Together we can utilise synergies and push forward the boundaries of the 3D realtime visualisation market," he added.
