Heartdub Materials

Real-time visualization, interaction and immersion

Built to Advance Sustainability and Workflow Automation

Precision work demands precision source. Material is a crucial element in digital creative works. Heartdub Materials, a high-fidelity physics solution that holds a large set of laboratory-grade textiles data and physical properties of materials, allowing digitized material to behave as it would in the real world. Unlock rapid prototyping and pro-level virtual production. Empowering creators to innovate at an unprecedented rate of creativity.

DATA-DRIVEN VIRTUALIZATION OF MATERIALS

Rapid prototyping in the design phase has raised concerns in the industry. For the use in the textile industry, physical behaviors of fabrics must be accurately obtained in order to achieve physically-based modeling results. We are introducing a digital material system that outshines traditional techniques where certain materials cannot be simulated effectively and consistently.

We have cross-integrated Materials Science, Textile Engineering, and Computer Science over the years, and built a physics engine to simulate materials in real-time based on corresponding physics behaviors and modeling results generated from our Digital Materials Datacenter. Heartdub works closely with manufacturers to boost fabric and material coverage and ensure that users always have the latest and reliable sources.

Heartdub Digital Materials Datacenter is built to predict and forecast; finally, results are interpreted. Go from surface to fiber, more than eighty sets of physical data are being collected during each test. Backed by Heartdub’s physics engine, creators can combine digital humans, real-time physics and object tracking to get complex setups. Discover new ways to create with Heartdub Materials.

FILM & TELEVISION

CLOTH SIMULATION MADE SIMPLE

Achieve physically accurate visuals with one-click interoperability between content creation tools and seamless collaboration through Heartdub Materials. 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 console, allowing advanced features like lighting and re-lighting, node-based shader authoring, IPR, and the ability to handle assets from numerous leading content creation tools 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 Material Description Language and real-time physics solver, you can implement complex materials across renderers without any scene adjustments. Optimized API is also fully integrated into the main engine codeline, further enabling the capability of delivering high graphical believable, lifelike virtualization in real-time.

VIDEO GAMES & BROADCAST

THE ULTRA-FAST ENGINE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU

Backed by Heartdub Materials physics engine, you can combine advanced ropes, vegetation, buoyancy and fluid simulation to get complex setups that suit your gameplay needs. With AI-assisted calculations and thread management, Heartdub Materials gives you the performance to create your best.

ACCELERATING LIVE BROADCAST PRODUCTION

With photorealistic real-time rendering and the freedom to make changes on the fly, Heartdub Materials allows you to deliver immersive experiences that engage audiences with dynamic, data-driven graphics created from live sources.

We are bringing ray tracing and net rendering in the next major release to move one step closer to being indistinguishable from reality.
