06/21/2012| 08:35am US/Eastern
Inc., (NASDAQ: ADSK) has announced that Nexon (TSE: 3659),
a world leader in free-to-play online games uses Autodesk
Entertainment Creation Suite to regularly update "Vindictus"
(Mabinogi Heroes), its massively multiplayer online role-playing game
(MMORPG). The suite offers a wide array of specialized creative toolsets
-- integrated through single-step workflows -- that help the game
developer produce large amounts of high-quality content on a tight
"Vindictus" stands out from other MMORPGs by offering console-quality
graphics and physics, with high-speed combat. It is frequently updated
with new online content, expanding on the game's existing 10 episodes
and numerous customizations for the five main playable characters.
To maintain high graphics quality, while frequently delivering new
online game assets, Nexon uses Autodesk
3ds Max software to model characters and props, along with Autodesk
Mudbox digital sculpting and painting software to add realistic
textures and detail to the assets. Single-step workflows between the
applications help artists move more freely between toolsets until they
achieve the desired result.
To produce more realistic character animation in less time, Nexon uses Autodesk
MotionBuilder character animation software to manage, edit and
retarget motion capture data. Nexon credits the software with improving
the efficiency of its animation workflow by approximately 50 percent.
"We must continually meet gamers' high expectations. Autodesk
Entertainment Creation Suite boosts our productivity and lets our
artists concentrate on creative work for 'Vindictus', resulting in
higher-quality art assets and a better game. We take full advantage of
the Autodesk suite's interoperability, saving time on file conversions
and other technical requirements," said Park Seong-Sub, Vindictus Art
Director at Nexon.
Nexon has received six awards for "Vindictus," including the Grand
Prize, Graphic Technical Creativity Award and Game Character Technical
Creativity Award at the 2010 Korea Game Awards.
