Heartdub Materials

Real-time visualization, interaction and immersion

BUILT TO ADVANCE CONTENT CREATION

Heartdub Materials, a cloud-native physics engine that comprises a large set of laboratory-grade physical properties of materials, allowing digitized materials to behave as they would in the real world. Delivering cross-context interoperability and interactive freedom for content creation.

Data-driven virtualization.

We have cross-integrated Materials Science, Textile Engineering, and Computer Science over the years, and built a physics engine natively on cloud to simulate materials based on corresponding physics behaviors and modeling results generated from Heartdub Digital Materials Datacenter. 

Real-world materials and physics.

Material is a crucial element in digital creative works. Go from surface to fiber, more than eighty sets of physical data are being collected during each test. Heartdub works closely with manufacturers to boost fabric and material coverage and ensure that creators always have the latest and most reliable sources.

Now available as individual plugins

Easily access Heartdub Materials through managed apps, and achieve physically accurate visuals with one-click interoperability. Simulation results are streamed on any endpoint or through third-party renderers. Discover new ways to create with Heartdub Materials.

FILM & TELEVISION

CLOTH SIMULATION MADE SIMPLE

Heartdub Materials runs with a standardized dataset from real world materials, and results in interoperable data. Driven by Heartdub Materials real-time physics solver, workflows are simplified as updates and changes are instantaneous with no need for data preparation. Through built-in drag-and-drop editor, users can accurately replicate a variety of complicated garments in real-time without the need to compile or sew. Helping creators reduce repetitive tasks and eliminate costly errors before they appear on set.

COLLABORATE AND CREATE IN REAL-TIME

Heartdub Materials is built to accelerate film and television production pipelines. It’s flexible node-oriented architecture and command-line interface, allowing advanced features like lighting and re-lighting, node-based shader authoring, IPR, and the ability to handle assets from leading DCCs with the asset’s procedural controls available for editing in the host program including Maya, 3ds Max, Houdini, Blender, Cinema 4D, and many more.

With Heartdub Materials you can implement complex materials across renderers without any scene adjustments. Fully managed APIs are also integrated into the main engine codeline, further enabling the capability of delivering high graphical believable, lifelike virtualization in real-time.
