A special white paper by Jon Peddie Research on Nvidia’s Omniverse.
In May 2020, Nvidia announced USD would be the foundation for its Omniverse, a live collaborative platform that connects a wide variety of content creation tools to each other and to the company’s real-time Nvidia RTX ray tracer.
Nvidia says it has expanded upon USD by developing new tools, integrating technologies, and providing samples and tutorials. And Nvidia says its RTX technology, when used with Omniverse, promises to allow people to work with applications and collaborate simultaneously with colleagues and customers, using rendered models in realtime.
Nvidia developed the Marbles game to demonstrate Omniverse with realtime physics, dynamic lighting, and physically-based materials. (Source: Nvidia)
