CLERMONT-FERRAND, France — May 27, 2008 —Allegorithmic’s powerful procedural texturing middleware, ProFX, has been named the “Best New Technology in Effects & Animation” in the first annual Deutsche Telekom Digital Entertainment Awards, presented at fmx/08. The awards aim at honoring new concepts, cutting edge developments and forward thinkers, shaping the future of digital entertainment.
The title of “Best New Technology in Effects & Animation” acknowledges innovative developments in major areas linked to effects and animation such as rendering, facial and character animation, lighting, procedural techniques or other inspiring work of importance to the effects and animation community.
ProFX 2.6 is the only middleware that allows game developers to professionally render high-quality procedural textures. ProFX 2.6 procedural texture files are very small in size -- typically 500 to 1,000 times smaller -- making them ideal for use in massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), virtual communities, casual and downloadable games.
