Enlighten software gets new enhancements from Geomerics

Posted By | On 08th, Aug. 2012

Enlighten is a software created by Geomerics, a lighting technology company. The software received the Develop award 2012 and the upgrades will be shown off in ARM booth (550) at Siggraph 2012.

The software has now Android and iOS support allowing developers to create lightweight lighting effects such as global illumination and area light on these platforms.

Dr. Chris Doran, founder of Geomerics, commented: “Sometimes we have to remind ourselves just how astonishing it is to see global illumination computed in real-time on a tablet or phone – it wasn’t that long ago that people were telling me this was impossible on high-end hardware!”

“Authoring and productivity are massively important to us at Geomerics,” said CEO Gary Lewis. “We have all been working towards the goal of pushing as much of the creation process into the real-time engine, so that content creators are working with the game as it will finally appear. Enlighten is a big part of this story, providing fully dynamic updates to global illumination.

“Initially, it was only the large studios that could take advantage of this technology, but our work with Maya, and other improvements, now make it easier for all studios to use Enlighten.”
