Core performance 2-30x faster
In 3.5, we’ve rewritten Katana’s engine in collaboration with Intel to improve core performance and speed, making an already formidable tool 2-30x* faster for many operations, but especially when handing over information to a rendering plugin. The result: drastically reduced time to first pixel so artists can achieve high-quality results faster. This engine overhaul also brings improvements in incumbent hardware, allowing for farm utilization to scale up with the most recent advancements of server CPUs, whilst future-proofing any other advancements in the CPU space.
