Elastic Uses GPU Rendering with Octane for The Alienist Title Sequence

Learn how the LA-based visual effects studio created a stunning title sequence for the TNT mini-series.

Elastic uses GPU rendering with OTOY’s OctaneRender and Cinema 4D to produce iconic title sequences for shows such as True Detective and Game of Thrones, often on a very short timeline. Join this webinar for an in-depth exploration of Elastic’s workflow for the title sequence of The Alienist, plus an update on OctaneRender from OTOY.
