Xrayunwrap, the 3ds Max plug-in from Italy’s leading independent videogames developer, Raylight, has definitely shown its steel with indie CG action movies. IRON BABY, created by aspiring Canadian studio Strob ( www.strob.net) utilised Xrayunwrap’s unprecedented improvements in speed, ease of use and real-time options to produce a short movie that even MARVEL would have trouble bettering!
Josleyn ‘Strob’ Simard, Owner of Strob said ‘I used Xrayunwrap to unwrap the UVs of all the suit parts for the IRON BABY. It was incredibly simple to use. I used to go outside of 3ds Max to use some UV unwrapping software to get the results I want but Xrayunwrap is perfectly integrated inside of 3ds Max.
No need to lose time importing and exporting geometry and debugging these steps! The result I get with Xrayunwrap is always perfect without any distortion and I get it almost automatically. For the IRON BABY,
I didn't lose a single minute.’
Massi Di Monda, CEO and Co-founder of Raylight said; “When we first heard that IRON BABY was developed with our Xrayunwrap technology, we thought – babies seem to like us! We’ve had great success with the My Little Baby videogames series and to then see this fantastic film, produced independently and using our tech, we had tell the world! Xrayunwrap is the mainstay of our production technology as it integrates perfectly with the 3ds Max technology we use, which ultimately saves time and money for us and the publisher. We’re already developing new tools to accompany Xrayunwrap for 3ds Max to improve areas such as rigging and animation which we will release soon. But overall, we’ve priced our products competitively so that all aspiring artists and designers can produce great work and compete with the best – but seeing the results achieved by Strob with IRON BABY, this really blew our minds! Strob definitely has some fans here in Italy!”
