Frederic Servant, Software Development Manager, Solid Angle, www.solidangle.com

Frederic is Software Development Manager at Solid Angle and is based in London, where he looks over the Arnold core and plugins teams scattered around the globe. He was previously the main developer of the Arnold integration in Houdini. Prior to Solid Angle, Frederic worked as an R&D Engineer at The Mill in London and La Maison in Paris.

 

Solid Angle SL is the technology company behind the Arnold rendering software, with offices in Madrid and London and customers throughout the world including Framestore, DreamWorks, ILM, Sony Pictures Imageworks, MPC, The Mill, Mikros Image and Rising Sun Pictures. Arnold was designed from the ground up to efficiently raytrace the complex geometric datasets required for feature­-length CGI animation and big­ budget visual effects, while at the same time simplifying the pipeline, reducing the number of passes, minimizing storage requirements and greatly enhancing interactivity for lighting artists.

Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you've ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you've experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software.
