jupiter jazz has exploded with a new site, and some new announcements, including an update to the AtomKraft for Nuke to version 1.1 with some new features, huge performance increases and plenty of fixes (listed as the full version of AtomKraft using unlimited rendering threads).

In addition, jupiter jazz has also announced a free version of AtomKraft for Nuke, as a downloadable, fully features time-unlimited version that even allows for commercial use. The FreeBeer™ version (as jupiter jazz calls it) is limited only to 2 rendering threads.

And lastly, comes the exciting announcement of AtomKraft for After Effects which is currently in beta, and soon to be released for April 2012.

AtomKraft is an asset-based look development, lighting & rendering toolkit designed for compositors. Atom­Kraft is really a com­plete look devel­p­ment re-lighting & rendering solu­tion that enables stu­dios to alle­vi­ate the use of 3D pack­ages for this part of the pro­duc­tion pipeline. It empow­ers com­pos­i­tors to make changes to ren­ders them­selves instead of rely­ing on a light­ing TD. But what’s more — it even allows them to do the work of a light­ing TD.

Under the Hood Atom­Kraft inter­faces with DNA Research’s 3Delight high-end, Ren­der­Man–com­pli­ant, offline ren­der­ing engine. The inte­grated ver­sion of 3Delight was specif­i­cally designed in con­junc­tion with jupiter jazz and each Atom­Kraft license includes 3Delight, sup­port­ing unlim­ited cores/threads on a sin­gle host. This is a special AtomKraft ver­sion of 3Delight works solely inside Nuke.
