What RTX Brings to your Workflow

NVIDIA Research Develops AI for Visual Applications

See how AI In-Painting refills images, AI Slo-Mo creates smoother and cleaner videos by creating new data, how AI inserts new data into video with Conditional GANs, the ability of AI to restore and enhance grainy images, or even create nonexistent AI photorealistic celebrities.

The Cornell Box Tests the Accuracy of RTX Rendering Software

See how RTX rendering technology delivers realtime ray traced rendering identical to an actual photograph of the same scene. This commonly used 3D test model, originally created at Cornell University, demonstrates that RTX rendering is indistinguishable from reality.

Project SOL: Realtime NVIDIA RTX Cinematic Ray Tracing

Realtime ray tracing, sought for decades, has arrived with NVIDIA’s Turing architecture, and breakthrough RTX rendering software. View this clip to view all the subtle nuance and convincing realism cinematic ray tracing can bring to your next project.

Rendering Materials

Materials

NVIDIA's vMaterials catalog is a collection of real-world materials described in the NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL). They're designed and verified by NVIDIA Material Specialists for accuracy, control, and consistency, giving you a quick and reliable way to add realistic materials to your designs.

The NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL) gives you the freedom to share physically based materials and lights between supporting applications. Unlike a shading language that produces programs for a particular renderer, MDL materials define the behavior of light at a high level. Different renderers and tools interpret the light behavior and create the best possible image, whether it's an OpenGL-based application or physically based renderer like Iray or Chaos Group's V-Ray.
