Auto Designer Puts Pedal To The Metal With NVIDIA Maximus
Daniel Simon is a professional automobile designer who’s worked with major brands such as Bugatti, Volkswagen, Audi and Lotus. Since 2008, he has designed high-style automobiles for feature films including “Tron: Legacy,” “Captain America” and “Prometheus,” and the upcoming film “Oblivion,” starring Tom Cruise. He recently went ‘all in’ with NVIDIA Maximus technology


Using an NVIDIA Maximus powered BOXX 8550XTREME workstation configured with NVIDIA Quadro 6000 and Tesla C2075 GPUs, he reduced render times per frame by about two-thirds – from 15 minutes to 5 – saving more than 11 days of rendering over the 1,600-frame clip.The clip was rendered in full HD 1080p with in-camera depth of field and low light – a really tough render task. The model is built in Autodesk Alias Automotive while the animation is key-framed and rendered in Bunkspeed Pro.

Daniel, often handle both vehicle design and modeling in the film projects that he work on, so he need efficiency. According to Daniel his first experience with NVIDIA GPUs was a single Quadro 6000. The rendering speed in iRay was an eye opener, and it also helped his editing process in Adobe Premiere Pro with its built-in GPU support.
