Omniverse Machinima

Completely Machinima 5.1 Machinima News June 2021

In this episode we discuss some new releases by some machinima veterans, NVIDIA’s Machinima Omniverse tool, a new sandbox game reliant on the world of NFTs, the recent FantaSci Short Film Festival, and making machinima in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Interview with Dane Johnston (Omniverse Machinima)

Dane Johnston is the Director of Omniverse Connect at NVIDIA and a member of the recently released (May 4, 2021) Omniverse Machinima. We spoke with him just before the release and asked him about the Machinima app. Note: the Omniverse Machinima app was released on May 5, 2021. There is no direct download. You have to go inside of the Omniverse app and select “Machinima” to install internally. Be sure to read the documentation as the requirements are essential for the program to work.
