Syflex introduces Sylyn - New node based animation software


We are introducing today Sylyn, a brand new, fully node based 3D animation software. The node system is extremely logical, simple to use, and easy to extend.
Every functionality in Sylyn is a node, with inputs and outputs. Each input and output can be connected to other nodes. For example, any input can be animated with a graph animation node.
New nodes can be created by combining and connecting nodes. These new nodes can then be added to the menu, and become part of the software.
Of course, Sylyn also includes a full version of our cloth simulator, Syflex.
We are starting today alpha testing of Sylyn, and are actively looking for talented graphic artists willing to help us finalize the software, and shape it into the right direction.

Sylene is demoing SyFlex

Sylene_Syflex

  Our cloth simulator was used in The Golden Compass, Spider Man 3, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The Silver Surfer, Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Superman, Batman Begins, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, among other notable feature films.

  SyFlex was used in numerous other projects, animated TV shows, commercials, game cinematics and short films (check out our news page to get a quick overview). Our clients used it to simulate cloth, hair, flesh, skin, ropes, sails, ghosts and even water. Some of the projects are reviewed in detail in our gallery pages.

  Designed by Steven Stahlberg, Sylene wears only SyFlex. We have two demo clips showing off how nice and easy it is to animate a dress, a pair of pants and a blouse. House of Moves provided the motion capture and we rendered Sylene dances in two different outfits. The simulation ran at 4 seconds per frame in both cases and none of the 1150 frames in this animation required any modification.


SyFlex - The Cloth Simulator

About syFlex

  SyFlex is the cloth simulator behind many of the realistic cloth animations seen in current 3D productions, special effects sequences in feature films and in commercials.

  SyFlex features an incredibly fast and stable engine, and while the comprehensive set of tools provided with the plugin allows to create a wide range of effects, the package is extremely simple to operate, and turns the creation of digital cloth into an easy task.
