KATANA 2.5 brings greater efficiency to studios of all sizes with new Windows port; Professional look development and lighting tool is now easier to install and supports plug-ins for RenderMan, V-Ray, Arnold and 3Delight
Today, The Foundry launches the latest update to its professional look development and lighting tool. Responding to customer demand, KATANA 2.5 will offer support for Windows, putting the award-winning tool in front of more artists working in VFX, broadcast and animation.
The new port makes KATANA’s full toolset available to Windows-based studios, previously unable to take advantage of the famous “lighting recipes”. Additionally, the toolset is easier to install and supports a number of plug-ins including Renderman, V-Ray, Arnold and recently 3Delight.
Andy Whitmore, chief product officer at The Foundry said, “The Foundry is constantly striving to help artists be more creative by providing them with the best software solutions in the industry. Launching on Windows and adding support for more industry-standard renderers is a fantastic example of us giving artists more flexibility to work the way they want.
