Interactive control over bazillions of polygons

Clarisse iFX is a powerful CG toolset trusted by internationally renowned creative studios.
Built by artists for artists, it is designed to simplify today’s complex creative workflows, empowering users with interactivity, speed and power over datasets containing bazillions of polygons.

Created in response to feedback from today’s front-line CG creatives, Clarisse iFX unifies powerful rendering, lighting and look development tools under a single, accessible package. Thanks to its integrated CPU based rendering engine, based on unidirectional path-tracing users can work interactively on rich, data-heavy environments, scenes and assets, with full visibility over their creative decision-making.

Clarisse iFX fits seamlessly into the core of any modern production pipeline.
It’s an intuitive, flexible and comprehensive toolset tailored to the needs of studios and production teams working in CG today – not ten years ago.

 

 

Work interactively on final rendered imagery

Shed light on the creative process via a state-of-the-art, lightning-fast CPU rendering engine. Creatives no longer need to work blind – they can interactively manipulate final imagery, seeing real-time updates directly in the viewport.
This means up to nine times more creative iterations and a more flexible, unhindered approach to content creation.

 

  • Manipulate hero assets interactively
  • Work at speed with unidirectional path-tracing and PBR
  • Iterate faster on creative work

Deeper collaboration founded in powerful referencing

Automatically synchronize all assets existing in a scene with a single click. Clarisse iFX’s powerful hierarchical referencing workflow empowers a consistent, collaborative creative process: dozens of creatives can work simultaneously and seamlessly on a single environment while ensuring artists, technical directors and wider teams don’t become lost in the noise. This also enables freelancers to easily jump into a project and get to work, without any headaches.

 

  • From freelancers to large teams: collaborate on scenes with total transparency
  • Synchronize internal and external assets instantly
  • A streamlined process from scene assembly to final render

 

 

Burst through the polygon barrier

Extreme complexity made manageable via a memory-efficient procedural evaluation engine. Clarisse iFX lets artists work with bazillions of polygons while it handles data behind the scenes. Users experience fast, flexible creativity even when manipulating environments containing vast complexity, thanks to an advanced PBR and path-tracing renderer that won’t break a sweat.

 

  • Bazillions of polygons at your fingertips
  • Remarkable flexibility in scene set-up
  • Tackle today’s complex CG workflows with ease

Multiple workflows, one application

Experience a tool created in response to the challenges of modern-day post-production. Clarisse iFX consolidates set-dressing, look development, lighting, rendering and layered-based pre-comp into a single, unified package. Archaic workflows defined by application hopping are a thing of the past; instead, users can focus on the singular task of creating incredible art.

 

  • No more application-hopping: access a unified,
    artist-friendly toolset
  • Intuitive tools designed specifically for today’s
    post-production environment
  • No more archaic 90s workflows

 

 

Created for you, by you

For artists, by artists. Every Clarisse iFX feature and update is born out of feedback and collaboration with our user community. We constantly engage with front-line artists and technical directors to learn what new challenges they’re facing and how they could increase productivity. Clarisse iFX is built, updated, and continually improved in response to these relationships.

 

  • Constantly updated to address today’s workflow challenges
  • Intuitively designed – enjoy an easy learning curve
  • Features developed to increase productivity

Hassle-free pipeline integration

Built for seamless integration into any modern production pipeline. Clarisse iFX works with major 2D and 3D applications and doesn’t require custom tools or third-party plugins to get started. It’s also comes with support for major CG frameworks, integrated color management based on OpenColorIO, a pipeline-friendly ASCII file format, and much more.

 

  • Out-of-the-box Alembic, OpenVDB, UDIM and UV Tiles support
  • Support for every image file format
  • Extensive Python customization

 

 

Build complex environments
with ease

Today’s VFX and CG projects demand environments containing greater detail and complexity than ever before. Clarisse iFX empowers users with tools capable of addressing this need. Artists can generate exquisitely rich digimatte environments with an unprecedented level of interactivity, all while processing bazillions of polygons. Layout, scene construction, set dressing and camera projection are built for total flexibility, and a non-linear workflow powered by on-the-fly geometry updates means artists can work non-sequentially and more collaboratively than ever.

Interactive render iteration

A powerful renderer doesn’t just make your work stand out from the crowd; it allows you to work with an unprecedented level of interactivity. Clarisse iFX comes with a powerful and memory efficient Monte Carlo-based renderer designed to enable exactly this. Unlike traditional software, the ultra-fast viewport is powered by the rendering engine, meaning users can make on-the-fly changes to final, fully detailed imagery. Options like hair and fur, particle rendering, subsurface scattering, and more are also immediately on hand. Clarisse iFX puts everything in reach.

  

Integrated LAYERED BASED pre-comp

Viewing your render layers assembled is a vital yet time-intensive process – Clarisse iFX streamlines it. Unlike other applications, Clarisse iFX integrates basic layered-based compositing directly into its lighting and rendering workflow; there’s no need for users to jump between applications traditionally dedicated to compositing to assemble your render layers. What’s more, artists can interactively manipulate their renders, enabling full visibility over changes to passes and layers. Clarisse iFX also brings further flexibility with deep image output, enabling values and depth information to be stored per pixel for quick-and-easy merging of imagery.

Create production-ready assets

Look development today demands micro-detail and high levels of realism. Clarisse iFX is tailored towards a beautiful final image, presenting a straightforward and hassle-free look dev process for scene and asset iteration. Its production-ready pipeline offers support for all industry-standard image formats; an intuitive and elegant node-based shading workflow for interactive and dynamic materials alterations; and a workflow that allows for huge flexibility via advanced projections, enhanced AOVs integration, a fast ray-traced occlusion node, and shading layers that allow look dev to occur in isolation.

 

What’s new in Clarisse iFX

Clarisse iFX 3.6 boasts a new outline subpixel filter, Shadow Catcher, Shading Variables and Alembic bundle support.
Users can render detail-heavy edges and silhouettes, and give background plates shadows and color bleeding more easily.
Look development pipelines have been streamlined, scene complexity reduced and much more besides.
An industry-leading new watermark-free Personal Learning Edition (PLE) is now also available.

When we first tested Clarisse we were like kids in front of Santa. It was the first time we could directly work on the final image and play with so many polygons. We could test lots of stuffs... Since, we use Clarisse for all digital sets we are working on.
