On the occasion of the Game Development Conference, Nvidia announced the arrival of the new Nvidia Omniverse features designed to simplify the sharing of resources, the ordering of libraries, collaboration and the implementation of AI by game developers in the processes to animate the facial expressions of the characters. Thanks to Nvidia Omniverse, game developers will be able to exploit artificial intelligence technologies and create custom processes to simplify, accelerate and improve development workflows. New features for game developers include updates to Omniverse Audio2Face, Omniverse Nucleus Cloud and Omniverse DeepSearch, as well as the introduction of Unreal Engine 5 Omniverse Connector. “Omniverse provides powerful development tools for those who want to do business in this industry today,” said Frank DeLise, vice president of Omniverse at NVIDIA. “The ability of this system to unify artists, tools and applications on a single platform can set an example for developer organizations around the world.”
Omniverse is one open multi-GPU platform for 3D design collaboration and real-time simulation. Works on any Nvidia RTX device, from a laptop to a server, streamlining complex 3D production workflows. Omniverse is based on Pixar’s Universal Scene Description (USD), an open source 3D platform, easily extensible and designed for the creation of content and exchange between the main development tools of the most popular games. Nvidia expanded the USD by developing new tools, integrating technologies, and providing examples and tutorials. Developers, designers and artists can pool their resourceslibraries, software applications and game engines within Omniverse, freely repeat design processes in real time, create tools to improve productivity, and instantly share high-definition models.
Components on the Omniverse platform for game developers include: Omniverse Audio2Facean artificial intelligence-based technology that allows character developers to generate high-quality facial animations from an audio file, and Omniverse DeepSearch, an AI-enabled service that allows game developers to use natural language inputs and images to instantly search the entire catalog of untagged 3D assets, objects and characters. Omniverse Connectors are plug-ins that enable collaborative “real-time synchronization” workflows between third-party design tools and Omniverse. The new Unreal Engine 5 Omniverse Connector allows game artists to exchange USD and material definition language data between the game engine and Omniverse.
