What is Clarisse?

Clarisse is a new breed of high-end 2D/3D animation software used to create and render the visual effects of Oscar wining movies, result of years of teamwork between R&D engineers and high-end CG artists. It has been designed to simplify the daily work of professional CG artists, allowing them to work directly on final images while alleviating the complexity of 3D creation. Its workflow has been designed from scratch to be "image-centric" so that artists can work constantly while visualizing their final image with full effects on. Clarisse is literally the fusion of a compositing software, a 3D rendering engine and finally, an animation software.
