StudioGPU Ships MachStudio Pro 1.2 – Continues to Advance

Real-Time Workflow and Rendering Capabilities for
Now available worldwide, MachStudio Pro 1.2 includes new features powered by the AMD ATI FirePro V8750 professional 3D workstation graphics accelerator, which is included with the program. This powerful combination of hardware and software gives 3D artists a seamless way to create and interact with cinematic-quality 3D objects and environments in a non-linear desktop workspace.

The MachStudio Pro workflow is similar to a virtual real-time 3D studio environment, allowing artists, designers, engineers, directors, and technical directors (TDs) to work with lighting, camera views, and multi-point perspectives for a real-time view of frames as they will appear in the final rendered format. Users can manage and interact with lighting, caustics, cameras, shaders, materials, ambient occlusion, and color grading for real-time shot finaling and compositing.

Powered by the new ATI FirePro V8750 3D workstation graphics accelerator, render times in MachStudio Pro can be reduced from hours to minutes and minutes to seconds or sub-seconds.

Supporting a diverse range of industries—from computer-aided design (CAD) visualization and 3D animation to top-quality film and broadcast projects—MachStudio Pro offers seamless interoperability with professional 3D modeling, animation, and 3D CAD software packages.

MachStudio Pro supports Microsoft Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista operating systems, and comes standard with an AMD ATI FirePro V8750 3D workstation graphics accelerator card. The special North America introductory price of MachStudio Pro is $4999 (USD MSRP), which includes one year of technical support and product maintenance updates.
