FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Toronto, Ontario Ã‚â€“ January 23, 2003 Ã‚â€“ eyeon Software announced today that a plug-in supporting the file format OpenEXR, originally developed by Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucas Digital Ltd. LLC, is now available for Digital Fusion 4, eyeon SoftwareÃ‚â€™s solution for 2D desktop compositing.
OpenEXR is a floating-point extended dynamic range image file format that, until now, was proprietary to ILM. eyeon Software is pleased to be the first high-end desktop compositing application outside of ILM to offer support for OpenEXR.
OpenEXR is designed to work on GNU/Linux, OS X 10.2, and IRIX OSÃ‚â€™s, making it necessary for eyeon to port OpenEXR to the Windows platform. Steve Roberts, CEO and Technical Director of eyeon Software says, Ã‚â€œIn doing OpenEXR support, the eyeon development staff had to port from Unix to Windows. The fact that a port and plug-in are available one day after the release by ILM shows the commitment that eyeon has for digital film and post production.Ã‚â€
Digital Fusion has full floating point color processing, making the integration and support of high dynamic range file formats a major feature for DF4 users, and ILM’s OpenEXR format is seamlessly supported.
OpenEXR will be supported by the upcoming Linux release of Digital Fusion 4.
