Bunkspeed® Powers its Next Generation of Software with Mental Images’
Combines fast and intuitive workflow of Bunkspeed with power and accuracy of mental images®
iray® rendering technology¬—creating a powerful, accelerated and easy-to-use next generation
real-time rendering tool with unprecedented photorealism.
Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2010 -- Bunkspeed, Inc, a leading global provider of rendering and
visualization software for design, engineering, and marketing, announced today it has selected iray® rendering
technology from mental images® to power its next generation software to be called Bunkspeed SHOT™—the
company's revolutionary easy to use, real-time photorealistic rendering application. Bunkspeed SHOT™ vastly
simplifies the complex process of 3D object rendering, putting the power of photorealistic imagery directly into
the hands of designers, photographers, engineers, architects, creative agencies, and all creators of 3D content.
Bunkspeed was the first to offer an intuitive "virtual digital camera" in the form of interactive real-time ray
tracing with its introduction of HyperShot®, whose simple and elegant workflow enabled digital designers to
bring their creations to realistic life, in minutes not hours—freeing them from the complex technical processes so
often related to 3D rendering tools, and with much better results.
Bunkspeed SHOT’s™ ability to use either the CPU, GPU or both, promises to be faster than ever before, scaling
seamlessly on one or more machines to make optimal use of any particular hardware configuration. Bunkspeed
SHOT’s™ integration with mental images’ iray rendering technology, fully exploits the powerful parallel
processing power of NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPUs, encouraging more rapid iterations with stunning
By tightly combining the intuitive and interactive Bunkspeed SHOT ™ workflow with the reality matching
accuracy of iray materials and lighting, allows creative users in any field, on any hardware, to intuitively
