DreamWorks Animation to Release Renderer as Open Source Software – The Hollywood Reporter

With the annual CG conference SIGGRAPH scheduled to begin Monday in Vancouver, DreamWorks Animation has announced its intention to release its proprietary renderer, MoonRay, as open source software later this year.

MoonRay has been used on feature films such as How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Croods: A New Age, Bad guys and coming soon Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.

“We are excited to share with the industry more than 10 years of innovation and development on our vector, threaded, parallel and distributed codebases,” said Andrew Pearce, DWA’s global chief technology officer. MoonRay. “The demand for rendering at scale grows every year, and MoonRay is set up to meet that demand. We expect to see the code platform grow stronger with community engagement as DreamWorks continues to demonstrate our commitment to open source.”

MoonRay uses DreamWorks’ distributed computing framework, Arras, which is also included in the open source codebase.
