The bright sparks over at Swiss International AB have just completed two spots for Unionen in Sweden, the Gull is completely CG using Yeti for generating the feathers and Chaos Groups VRay for rendering.
There are two HD stills below to scrutinize and each of the spots can be viewed here and here – be sure to watch them at HD quality.
We’re happy to share another great piece created by Ghost VFX for Gori Paint, directed by Martin Gårdeler the team revisited Andy the Mouse using Yeti along with VRay to produce this entertaining time lapsed spot.
A big congratulations to the whole Peregrine Labs team on the release of Yeti 1.1 – we’ve been working hard over the last few months to implement features and reduce those gotchas.
We’re calling this our “rendering version” as the biggest addition is support for both Chaos Group’s V-Ray and Solid Angle’s Arnold in addition to Pixar’s RenderMan and 3Delight – a big thank you to all the companies for their support.
Licensing has also been made much more flexible, all of our rendering tools ( including referencing cached fur in Maya ) run completely unlicensed which means only an interactive license is required for editing and/or simulation in Maya.
Along the way we’ve improved dynamics, graph evaluation, instancing and grooming!
For more information please contact us or request a trial license.

As much as we would like everyone to use our great products, due to a recent turn of events we can no longer make Yeti available to all of the lovely users in the United States. Our official statement is:
“To avoid a potential ongoing and expensive legal dispute with Joe Alter respecting the scope of his patent, Peregrine and Alter have executed a settlement agreement in which Peregrine has agreed not to sell or license the Yeti plug-in to users located within the geographic boundaries of the United States until his patent expires.”
The decision to settle was difficult but necessary, as a small company we’d rather put our resources into improving our products than feeding a broken legal system.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions and/or concerns.
