NVIDIA open sources Material Definition Language S

first_imgNVIDIA open sources Material Definition Language SDKNVIDIA is giving developers the ability to integrate MDL support into rendering apps with its latest open source set of tools. The MDL SDK provides components for loading, inspecting, and editing material definitions.“The NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL) is a programming language for defining physically based materials for rendering. A rich vocabulary of material building blocks based on bidirectional scattering distribution functions (bsdf) allows creation of a wide range of physical materials such as woods, fabrics, translucent plastics and more. The language is flexible enough to allow applications to add support for popular material models without additional changes in a renderers core shading code, examples would be the Epic’s Unreal physical material model or the material model used for in X-Rite’s SVBRDF model,” the company explained.With the newly open-source SDK, developers can expand and adapt MDL based on their needs as well as add more functionality.eBay gives developers new APIs and AI capabilitiesAt its annual developer conference, eBay announced new features for third-party developers.
