We’ve regrouped all our powerful integrated software in 2 separate packages.
Bcreative Suite includes all the tools BUF has built and improved to ease the creative process : A complete 3D pipeline studio from modeling, dynamics, animation to high end rendering, a node-based compositing software, a batch process manager and many more…
Bpipeline Suite is the collection of efficient tools creating a coherent pipeline that meets productions biggest challenges in Full CG Animated films and live actions movies especially regarding financial constraints : A production management tool, an asset management tool and many more…
Only Bview is available so far! Bcreative Suite is coming progressively, then Bpipeline Suite. Interested in Bsuite or just one of these software. Register now and find out more.
ALL-ENCOMPASSING CG CREATION TOOL
A complete 3D pipeline studio from modeling, dynamics, animation to high end rendering
Define the minimum tracking points manually or automatically to track moves. Then calibration automatically builds the correct 3D scene with reference to the camera used to film the shot.
Standard polygonal modeling or Beziers Surface based modeling, Bstudio proposes a vast collection of modeling tools easy to manipulate.
Bstudio texturing approach is camera mapping, using photographs of an object from different angles and projected onto the object, to get the most sophisticated photorealistic rendering.
Users can paint directly on the 3D object in real time and then export the maps out as one single map.
Bstudio scripting language regroups various libraries (mathematics, image, animation, modeling, etc.) increasing users productivity. To help with repetitive tasks, users can create their own tools stored, executed, shared... in “Toolboxes”.
In Bstudio, a lot of treatments are available in nodes. Nodes can be “connected” together to create data flow and to further explore results. More productivity, more artistic control, this is an unlimited source of creation to build unique effects.
Bstudio animation control system can range from a simple parent/child hierarchy to more complex systems like muscles to aid the animators with physically and visually realistic performance. Users can easily set keyframes on selected 3D objects and manage complex state machines for different body parts thanks to various editors such as the Curve Editor or the Animation Layers.
Bstudio has easy systems for creating all the standard categories of 3D effects : particles, fluids, soft bodies, hair and fur or rigid bodies based on the opensource physics engine Bullet.
Bstudio embeds its own high end rendering engine, Brender. Based on ray tracing, it supports most of the advanced algorithms of lighting such as global illumination, image based lighting or surface shading (BRDF, SSS, programmable shaders via our shading language). Brender enables rendering Hair and participating media (voxels particles) and is designed to produce all passes required for compositing.
NODE BASED COMPOSITING TOOL
Combine rendered elements from Bstudio and multiple sources to create highly complex visual effects.
Various nodes (2D effects) such as color correction (gamma, contrast...), multiple channel (alpha..), matte (shape, keyer...) , transform (crop, flip, resize...) among others in the node box, can be linked together in a procedural graph to produce the final shot.
Simple and robust, Bcolor supports, all industry standard image formats workflow (OpenImageIO based) as well as more sophisticated workflow such as stereoscopic workflow.
Provides an extensive command line support to automate repetitive task and integrate Bcolor within your pipeline. Combined with Bprod, it brings scalability to the pipeline and optimize change management.
2D ANIMATIONS TOOL
2D paint with layers and image sequences support to produce rapid 2D animations.
A key frame timeline, the ghosting or a full image sequence support, many efficient features enable a rapid traditional animation workflow.
You can create animation using a large variety of drawing tools. Brushes, pens, pencils... enhanced selection tools, restore... give maximum control over the finest details.
You can easily make whole or partial image drawing, manipulation, transformation.. without ever destroying the creative process thanks to Bpaint efficient multi layers.
PROCESS MANAGEMENT TOOL
Node-based process manager to recreate everything artists create, automate repetitive tasks, manage history and versioning all along the pipeline.
efficiency to Bsuite
All Bsuite software are connected to Bprod. Managing the storage of elements, the naming convention, converting images, executing scripts, recreating everything you create... Bprod brings scalability and efficiency to your pipeline.
Bprod brings history and versioning. All software executions are mapped to script and command lines. Artists can insert comments for any change they make and at each Bprod execution, a copy is stored in a dedicated database.
You can retrieve and recreate previous versions.
With a node-based approach, Bprod combines command lines and scripting language. Users can easily automate all the tasks.
SEQUENCE PLAYBACK TOOL
High resolution image and sequence player for VFX and animation studios to help artists review the work accurately and in context.
PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT TOOL
Collection of collaborative features to allow the management and the artists to know what has been completed in the pipeline what is still a work in progress, what needs to be reviewed and validated on a day to day basis.
ASSET MANAGEMENT TOOL
3D scenes, models, textures, scripts, animations, images... integrate all materials in Bbank to be reused all over again in next projects.
