What’s New: Cinesite, a visual effects (VFX), animation and digital entertainment studio, collaborated with Intel on the newly released “The Addams Family 2” movie to take visual effects and animation to new levels of brilliance and photorealism. The animated feature was built on a foundation of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with built-in Intel Deep Learning Boost technology in Cinesite’s render farm and optimized by Intel oneAPI tools – namely Intel® Open Image Denoise, an AI-accelerated denoiser for superior visual quality (part of the Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit).
“When we set out to make ‘The Addams Family 2,’ we wanted it to be bigger, better and more fun than the first movie. To achieve that, we needed advanced tools and technology for our artists to create the ground-breaking, beautiful visuals to accompany our story. We were so fortunate to partner with Intel on this and get our artists everything they needed to achieve the work we wanted for the movie.”
By using Intel’s oneAPI tools, Cinesite was able to significantly reduce the rendering time on every frame, creating more high-quality scenes in the process. Artists were no longer spending additional hours on troubleshooting samples, adjusting render quality or resubmitting renderers, but instead were able to refocus their efforts on the more creative aspects of moviemaking: developing more intricate and compelling visuals.
1 Testing Date: Results are based on data conducted by Cinesite 2020-21. 10% to up to 25% rendering efficiency/thousands of hours saved in rendering production time/15 hrs per frame per shot to 12-13 hrs. Cinesite Configuration: 18-core Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (W-2295) used in render farm, 2nd gen Intel Xeon processor-based workstations (W-2135 and -2195) used. Rendering tools: Gaffer, Arnold, along with optimizations by Intel® Open Image Denoise.
