WavGen Pro v3 Maya

WavGen Pro v3 Maya

Wavgen Terramapper Pro v3.0 (32/64)

WavGen Pro (Windows, OSX, and Linux) is the next generation of wavelet based applications that allows the user to load, model, animate, and render virtually unlimited size textures within Maya, 3D Studio Max, Softimage, and LightWave 3D with 100% third party tools, plugins, and render engine support. It includes five geodata layers of the globe, a shader (terrashader), procedural texture layer (inherent in the technology) and supports all datums and projection types. WavGen Terramapper Pro supports JPEG 2000 and ECW images, and multiple image conversion and compression tools are included.

Loading modelling, and rendering unlimited UV maps and textures is accomplished by only loading the parts of an image into memory that are actually visible in the final render in the resolution needed for the final image. To determine the optimum resolution of the image need for the render, WavGen Terramapper uses a number of variables, including for example the distance of the surface to the camera.

A smart caching system ensures that the performance hit on render times is minimal, especially when rendering out animations. This also reduces the load in file servers when rendering on a farm. The loading of scenes with WavGen's technology is much quicker than using natives images. When compared with ballooning EXR and MAP images, which expand the file as a bump map, the hit on the network and storage is minimal.

It has been our goal to integrate WavGen as tightly into any CG software as possible and to adhere to existing standards to make using it a smooth experience. We also include additional functionality, such as the 2K and 4K hardware texture in 3D software viewport.

We have been using WavGen for Maya Mentalray and Maya Vray and full support for Redshift for three years and are tied to it successfully, and consider this product exceptional.

The WavGen JPEG2000 and ECW nature of the format itself reduces all textures mathematically lossless. The other technolgies like EXR increase or balloons textures, slowing things down on storage and networks.

The Maya WavGen software allowed us to free up 39 TBs of textures and replace these with 1TB of equivalent lossless compressed textures, and render and worklow speed increased dramatically using ECW JPEG2000.

WavGen Pro v3 for Maya now supports all bit depths up to 32bit per channel, and also supports many channels (up to 255), and also supports high dynamic ranges. In addition, the files are compressed in a lossless state (or lossy if you wish) using WGW or ECW/JPEG2000. Rendering speeds and compositing speeds are 100 times faster than using the bloated EXR file format. We are very very happy with this technology.

Our desire for the WavGen Pro v3 Maya plugin and tool set was from a project we worked on this year together with WETA in New Zealand. We needed high color bit depth per channel, and also needed fast and network easy rendering performance. A complicate scene opened up in 45 minutes using a stadard tiff node base, but loaded in under 1 minutes using WavGen. These guys promise and deliver, and WavGen is the worlds only fast wavelet engine for Maya. We will remain very loyal to this technology.

A fellow GIS/Animation friend told me that he used WavGen Pro and thought it amazing. I purchased a copy on that recommendation and started to use it.

First, you should know I am a software engineer, having been in the business for nearly 30 years. I have coded more languages and environments than I care to remember! WavGen for Maya is truly unique in its class and I love the integration of the ECW and JPEG2000 libraries together with GDAL :-) I must tell you that, when I saw the Web page advertising your unlimited texture and huge uv mapping technology, I was reserved, knowing the limitations of Maya. Here at last was what I needed. Working, high-quality software is a rarity - as you must well know. THANK YOU.

I bought this software a long time ago. I think back in 2004 when we had a production in New Zealand. I find it to be the best out there for 3D terrain and rendering landscapes and environments. I have full and complete very high resolution control in my renderings using JPEG2000. And the hardware 4K viewport option is astounding. Our team usually waits for Maya to load hundred of textures into the hypershade for 10s of minutes, while a complex scene gets loaded. With wavgen, it literally loads in under 10 seconds (and I mean complex...).

I have been a wavgen pro fanatic for nearly 5 years. It was very difficult to maintain my large data and terrain collections. I was using EXRs and MAPs but they are grossly to big after setting the scene files up and it takes forever to load Mayas hypershade. To do the job, adn load a scene in under 10 seconds, we started deploying wavgen pro. I found the wavgen web site and used the trial software for a day or two and I was hooked. The service is great and so are the owners!

In less than 3 hours of work I had all my 200 frames rendered and tested. My older program which did not support MAC OSX has been replaced, and this is now my choice for doing this. I am anxiously awaiting your EOD Satellite Data Bundle will purchase more as soon as I finish this next project. Thanks for the good work and superb program. Super Job!!

We have been using this wavgen software for about 6 years now. I just need to upgrade mine to the newer version. But I cannot say enough good about it. We also have the movie reviewers doing summersaults around the shots we have presented them with over the years. I hesitate to say that maybe a good portion of our recurring business is due to wavgen. And I dont have to mess with copyright protection stuff concerning geo data. I own the data!?! Yes! Between the film and tv projects, and tv commercials, our projects do a lot of powers of ten style terrain views. Wavgen is a must!
