nVidia launches beta program for Gelato

Gelato is nVidia's high end rendering package. The new version will plug into Maya and 3D Studio Max.

It off-loads rendering directly to nVidia graphics cards (which are optimised to do that kind of work anyway) rather than running on the hosts general purpose CPU.

If anyone has used the MAXtreme plugin for 3DS, the realtime rendering is pretty well real-time, compared to the output renderer which can take hours. Gelato will offer the same sort of speeds for final rendering.

Gelato has been speeded-up while using less memory than earlier versions.
