Unity Technologies Acquires Graphine

Graphine Team

We are very excited to announce that we have been acquired by Unity Technologies. Graphine is worldwide known for its streaming and compression technology used to increase the graphical quality of video games and interactive 3D applications. Based in Ghent, our R&D department will continue developing state-of-the-art streaming technology. Unity Technologies announced the acquisition during its keynote event at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Ca., Monday night.

Texel Space Shading

Nvidia has been talking about Texel Space Shading support in their Turing GPU. From a distance, this technique somewhat resembles procedural virtual texturing, although both techniques are substantially different. You might not have heard about procedural VT so in this blog we’ll compare the old and the new and discuss how they can be applied to optimize GPU performance and increase framerate. You can skip the section about procedural VT if you’re only interested in Texel Space Shading.

Auto Removing Unseen Texture Detail

Culling texture data in A boy and His Kite proof of concept

From 4.5GB to 230MB on disk in Epic’s Cinematic “A Boy and his Kite”

Could we save disk space by removing texture regions that are never visible? At Graphine we are developing a texture culling system into our Granite streaming SDK. We tested a working prototype on Epic’s award-winning ‘A Boy and His Kite’. The results are stunning: we reduced the texture storage footprint for the cinematic shot in this demo from 4.5GB to 230MB, keeping just 5% of the original textures, and all without any visible loss of quality.

Why the future of 3D graphics is in high-resolution textures

This article investigates the importance of high-resolution textures in achieving the best visual quality for gaming, AR, and VR applications and what role texture streaming systems such as Granite SDK play in this ecosystem. We will investigate how modern real-time engines can benefit from high-resolution textures, how these textures can be created cost-effectively, and how these textures can be visualized in real-time without sacrificing performance or increasing texture memory use.
