NVIDIA introduces you to the world of Lundo and Flint with their new The Plush Life short film.

With this short movie they demonstrate the capabilities of the NVIDIA Gelata software:
From concept to final renderings, The Plush Life animation evolved over a period of seven months. Modeled and animated with Autodesk Maya 3Dsoftware, the film was rendered entirely in Gelato Pro software on NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics boards, utilizing the program’s advanced features such as depth-of-field, motion blur, ambient occlusion, and raytraced reflections. Also incorporated into the animation is subsurface scattering, which allows materials to absorb and scatter light, depth-of-shadows for rendering of the hair, and new shader technology used to create the velvety appearance of the “Flint” character.

“The Plush Life” will give attendees a firsthand look at the advanced rendering features of Gelato software, and a glimpse of future rendering technology from NVIDIA, powered by the latest NVIDIA Quadro solutions.
