REAL Software, creator of cross-platform software development tools, today announced that Eden FX, a large special effects studio in Santa Monica, developed an application with REAL Studio to render visual effects animation for The Social Network, Superman Returns and Lost. Dubbed “Red Five” after Luke Skywalker, the tool was created by Eden FX’s Executive Visual Effects Producer Steve Pugh.
Pugh’s application is used daily by 20 artists and three producers to manage rendering of all the visual effects animation for the company’s projects, whose recent work includes Chuck, Fringe and The Cape. Because of the render controller, workflow at Eden FX has improved substantially and given artists the ability to integrate multiple advanced image formats, which was not previously supported by other programs.
