Next Limit specializes in the research and development of innovative software products that support physical simulation and visualization activities in the fields of engineering, visual effects, architecture and design. Next Limit has gained a worldwide reputation for the quality, power and versatility of its simulation tools.
From a drop of water to a large patch of the open ocean, from a bouncing tiny marble to a collapsing building, from the gorgeous caustics at the bottom of a pool to the dispersion of light through a prism; all these physical phenomena can be modelled realistically by computers. At Next Limit, we have been providing software that makes this possible for 20 years.
For many reasons, it is not always possible to use practical elements when creating content for media and entertainment. For instance, flooding a flat with practical elements is expensive and potentially dangerous. Instead physics-based simulation software can be used. In other situations, you need to create synthetic images; simulating the light makes this possible.
Virtual Reality experiences are better when the things that are happening in the virtual world around you are realistic. A glass breaking unrealistically could make your immersion experience fail. Our ability to mimic reality with our simulation software helps improve VR and Game experiences.
The key concept of the industry 4.0 is the “smart factory”, where many parts of the production pipeline are simulated in a safe environment. A robotic arm can be simulated and trained in a virtual production pipeline, where things are safe. Our software allows for the simulation of joints and servo motors, both key elements for the realistic simulation of robots.
Bring complete precision to your visualization designs and quickly create virtual prototypes. Our technology is true to the physics of real light, it is impeccably accurate and predictable – meaning stunning results without the need for tweaking. Its ease of use means you don’t need to be a CG expert to make the most of it.
We have the perfect solution for the high end, photo quality visualizations that architects need. The physically correct simulation helps to envisage how natural and artificial light will affect creations. Next Limit’s rendering technology is so accurate, in fact, that many architects use it not only for final renders, but as an integral part of the design process.
Used extensively in the automotive industry by all the major automobile manufacturers, Next Limit’s visualization technology offers a complete package for designers and engineers. Its physically correct lighting enables them to create visualizations that are lifelike, thus saving on highly expensive manufacturing costs in test prototypes.
