Blender is a free, open source 3-D content creation suite. “Blender is available cross-platform, but utilizes OpenGL® for drawing the entire interface. That means you best use a graphics card and drivers that conform to the OpenGL® specifications. Unfortunately there are a lot of cheap graphics cards on the market that only support a basic sub-set of the OpenGL® specs. VIA and Intel cards are infamous for this.” Blender.org
Cycles is an adaptive render engine that is interactive and easy to use that can use the power of OpenCL on GPUs.
Simulia - Abaqus/Standard
Abaqus is the simulation engine used by many of the Dassault Systemes modeling and CAD products, as well as ecosystems including Abaqus/CAE, CATIA and SolidWorks.
OpenCL-enabled Abaqus accelerates the factorization of fronts provided by the Dassault Systemes Simulia Abaqus/Standard direct, sparse, multifrontal solver on the AMD FirePro graphics product line.
DEM Solutions - EDEM®
EDEM® is an advanced DEM (discrete element method) simulation software for engineering design and analysis of bulk particle handling and processing equipment.
The implementation of EDEM® simulation engines employing AMD FirePro graphics accelerator OpenCL-enabled hardware allows customers to increase both the number of design prototypes and the complexity of models they can simulate in a given time.
Eyeon - Fusion®
Eyeon Fusion® is a full-featured, node-based compositing system used to develop highly realistic special effects for major blockbuster films, stereoscopic productions, game cinematics, broadcast and special event productions, motion graphics and 3-D titling.
By leveraging OpenCL, Fusion is able to harness the power of the GPU to bring performance improvements of up to 1000% for deep compositing and rendering functions.
Side Effects Software - Houdini
For over twenty years, Side Effects has been providing artists with procedural 3-D animation and visual effects tools designed to create the highest-quality cinematic results. Houdini is the flagship product used by thousands of studios to create stunning 3-D effects.
Houdini v12 uses the GPU to dramatically increase the performance and speed of Pyro FX simulations (smoke and fire). Pyro FX is currently the only area of Houdini that uses GPU acceleration via OpenCL, benefiting from significantly faster simulation performance.
Main Concept - H.264/AVC
The multimedia market is asking for powerful hardware-accelerated encoding solutions to speed up the processing time for video beyond what the CPU alone can offer. MainConcept’s new OpenCL™ H.264/AVC Encoder provides amazing performance making use of OpenCL hardware acceleration while maintaining excellent quality.
The SDK allows powerful encoding into the H.264/AVC Baseline, Main and High Profile formats. It offers many features found in the H.264/AVC Encoder that is included in the MainConcept Codec SDK allowing the whole H.264/AVC conversion process to be done on the GPU, except for entropy encoding which is done on the CPU.
Optis - THEIA-RT
THEIA-RT is a fully scalable real-time, physics-based rendering solution creating the connection between stylists and engineers. It allows the simulation of all color, lighting and material effects on your display and in a VR center.
THEIA-RT is developed on OpenCL. It uses OpenCL ray-tracing technology to carry out physically correct rendering in real time.
