AMD accelerates Scratch, Fusion & Cinema4D workflows
SUNNYVALE, CA — AMD’s (www.amd.com) new FirePro W-series workstation graphics are helping to accelerate a number of post workflows. Users of Assimilate Scratch V.6 can draw on AMD’s FirePro W8000 and V7900-SDI graphics cards for their digital intermediate and cinematic finishing workflows. Scratch artists will benefit from GPU acceleration performance and low-latency frame synchronization between AMD FirePro W-series graphics cards and third-party SDI I/O hardware. Scratch V.6 users will also benefit from the solid monitoring and color accuracy required for grading and final conform.

AMD and Eyeon have partnered to enable AMD’s FirePro W5000, W7000 and W8000 graphics cards to power advanced cinematic visual effects workflows in Fusion. AMD FirePro graphics cards support 30-bit color out-of-the-box via onboard DisplayPort connections and are certified to work with third-party SDI I/O hardware, ensuring that Fusion users can use high bit-depth-capable, color-calibrated displays. Additionally, AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology allows more than four displays to be connected to a single AMD FirePro card for improved productivity and efficiency when simultaneously working with multiple screens. 

Fusion now fully supports AMD’s DirectGMA technology, which enables full compatibility with third-party SDI I/O hardware from vendors including AJA, Blackmagic and Bluefish444.

And for pros working with Maxon Cinema4D R14, AMD FirePro W-series workstation graphics enable new levels of productivity and user experience. The AMD FirePro W-series graphics cards now offer certified drivers that have been specifically tuned to provide new levels of performance and reliability for users of Maxon’s Cinema4D R14 software toolset. The powerful new sculpting toolset in Cinema4D R14 enables flexible new options for quickly designing detailed 3D models.
