Today, SiNi Software announces the launch and availability of its first set of tools for 3D professionals. SiNi aims to streamline the workflow of 3D artists, helping them to save time and take control of their work more easily. For studios this means a more efficient team, capable of producing high quality work on a shorter time scale. The SiNi team has more than 50 years’ experience in 3D, VIZ and VFX and have extended their own in-house tools to bring powerful new abilities to Autodesk® 3ds Max®
The SiNi toolset comprises a set of three tools designed to revolutionise the experience of Autodesk 3ds Max users:
The core tool of the SiNi software suite, IgNite, is a complete toolset to assist with modelling animation and rendering workflows. IgNite can speed up daily work by bringing everything into one location, including 10 bespoke utility plugins. IgNite features the first networkable playblast, CAD cleanup and retopologize tools as well as the ability to prep scenes and submit multiple cameras to render. Furthermore, if you need to save 3D assets to your library from within your scene, the SiNi AMI (Asset Management Interface) tool is built in to assist you.
ProxSi is the most advanced universal proxy plugin available for 3ds Max, allowing for the transference of proxies, instances, and their assigned positions seamlessly between leading renderers. By using ProxSi, artists can save assets within the scene or externally and have the ability to round trip edit, meaning you can import a proxy, convert it to an edit mesh for editing and then save back to the proxy without losing its X,Y, and Z placement coordinates. ProxSi also adds protection, designed to lock your assets for file sharing and copyright protection.
SiNi’s parametric modelling tool. SiClone features the ability to array multiple 3D objects along splines with independent parameters and control. SiClone works seamlessly with ProxSi and other 3rd party proxy and mesh assets as well as leading renderers.
Further tools will be coming soon, pushing 3ds Max to new levels of functionality. Sign up to All Access to receive all products at a discounted rate, as well as to gain access to SiNi code functions to develop your own tools and pipeline integration. SiNi differs from other developers by extending its software to allow 3ds Max scripters and pipeline developers the flexibility to access code functions and create their own custom tools to meet their studio’s requirements.
Nigel Hunt – CEO of SiNi Software commented: “When we started working on SiNi Software we set out to create tools that we wanted to use. In the process we learnt that there was a whole community of 3D people who were also looking to speed up their processes. Now we want to work with that community to continue developing products that benefit everyone. By opening up communication in the industry we want to bring everyone together to make everything better.”
Priced at £150, for a year’s subscription to each individual service; IgNite, ProxSi or SiClone. All Access is available for £250 for a year of membership and access to all tools. The SiNi toolset is available today from exclusive reseller BlueGFX.
