Compared to most 3D companies, Okino does not sell a "one size fits all" software product. Rather,
our software is customized (via specific modules + suggestions on how to use the software) for each of our new or existing customers based on their current requirements
or set of problems that need to be resolved.
Rather than seek out a "feature list" which matches your requirements, please send a quick
send email to Robert Lansdale (our CTO and founder), with
a short description of what problems or requirements you have today, and Robert will explain the exact
software solution you may need.
NuGraf is Okino's primary software product. For $100 extra it contains
all the functionality of PolyTrans in addition to full material & texture
editing, an extensive lens flare system, a sunlight study/calculation plug-in system,
photon mapped based caustics, multi-threaded ray tracing, interactive
texture projections, font creation and much more. It is the preferred
solution unless you only need to run PolyTrans inside 3ds Max or Maya.
Since 1988 Okino has been developing an extensive series of APIs that allow third party developers to easily write new plug-in modules for
Okino's NuGraf and PolyTrans products. These are highly developed and documented, made available to third party developers by way of the "Okino Plug-Ins SDK". Using the SDK, a wide variety of plug-in module types can be created, from import converters, export converters and "System Level" plug-in modules. Click here to view the current list of Okino plug-in modules developed and distributed by third party developers.
Qualified developers can also easily make PolyTrans converter functionality accessible within their own 3D programs by way of the Okino PolyTrans!ProServer COM interface SDK. Well established bundling and resale opportunities are available to such developers.
If you require 3d rendering capabilities as well as 3d data translation functionality then NuGraf is the preferred product. As noted below, NuGraf includes
all the functionality of PolyTrans internally - you do not need to purchase both products
nor install both products from the CDROM.
PLEASE NOTE! PolyTrans and the NuGraf are exactly the same program internally (they share the same source code and are nearly identical executable images). When you purchase NuGraf you do not have to install PolyTrans from the CDROM.
PolyTrans is a simpler version of the NuGraf software that
does not include the scanline and ray tracing rendering capabilities, the fancier user
interface, the material editors, the texture editors, the interactive texture projection
capabilities or the 3D font creator. PolyTrans was designed to be a program in which you
would execute, perform some quick 3D translations and exit; whereas, NuGraf has the added
benefits of being able to manipulate the material attributes of the imported data, make photo-realistic renderings (or preview the data), then export the data (if you wish to
make an export). Many of our customers (and magazine reviewers) find NuGraf to be the
better value at only $100 more than the base cost of PolyTrans. As such, NuGraf is the
preferred product even if you have come to our WEB site to purchase PolyTrans.
