IGEL OS entering the 3D Animation/Movie studios!

By Fredrik Brattstig @virtualbrat

You that have been following my blogs on remoting advanced graphics and Virtual Reality, I have always been choosing to show games. Games are catchy, fun and state of the art in terms of hardware and optimized software stacks. If you can do gaming in remote environments you can do anything. And that is the target for today – ANYTHING!
Within this blog article I will be looking at a different use case, extremely hardware and software optimization depending, 3D modelling and Movie creation.

As you will see in the video, I’m not very skilled in the applications I’m showing 🙂 , I though believe that the video will show how well IGEL OS is performing in this space.

About the lab-environment used in the demo video:
