PARIS — E-on Software, a developer of software for the creation, animation, rendering, and integration of natural 3D environments, recently announced that Gnomon, School of VFX has deployed the company’s Vue and PlantFactory software. Gnomon is a leading school of VFX in Hollywood.
Vue will allow its students to create stunning 3D CG environments which can be rendered and exported in 3DS Max, Maya, LightWave and Cinema 4D. PlantFactory is a 3D vegetation modeling, animation and rendering software. Users can render stills and animations for compositing jobs or for use as billboards.
"We are honored to collaborate with Gnomon, and this partnership will give us an opportunity to interact with new CG artists and animators," says Mathieu Riveccie, business development manager at E-on Software.
"Seeing how far Vue and PlantFactory have evolved over the years makes me excited to see what will come from getting them into the hands of our students," adds Max Dayan, director of education: vocational. "Students at Gnomon School are always pushing the bar when it comes to making stunning images and I think the tools that E-on Software has created could help push that bar even higher."
Vue and PlantFactory have been deployed in the school's computer labs, and are being integrated into digital environment creation courses.
"The Gnomon relationship offers Bentley Systems and E-on the opportunity to support students in the media and entertainment, game development and visual effects communities, who are likely to be future users of our tools," says Noah Eckhouse, senior vice president, portfolio development at Bentley Systems.
