One of the most powerful lighting and look development tools is getting an update. Easier to install, use and integrate, KATANA 2.5 is now Windows-compatible, a customer request that will bring the famous “lighting recipes” to even more artists working in VFX, broadcast and animation. Support for V-Ray, RenderMan, Arnold and 3Delight have also been added, making the tool even more versatile in the modern 3D pipeline. “KATANA has become the bedrock of our pipeline,” said Kevin Baillie, co-founder at Atomic Fiction. “Big scenes, experimental lighting set-ups, we can throw anything at it and it’ll give us production-ready results that we can share up and down the chain. With timelines getting shorter and shorter, you need tools like KATANA around; there’s no other way to get the work done.”
