Elementacular is an OpenGL based plugin for Autodesk Maya. The project is designed to make it easy and fast to create stunning visual effects. The goal is to make it faster and more fun for artists to create photorealistic or artistic clouds and rocks for high-end film, commercials and games. The plugin is built using the newest OpenGL 4.4 specifications which enabled the team at the Computer Graphics Lab / Alexandra Institute to create a high-quality volumetric raymarching and procedural noise generator which works in real-time using compute shaders and image load / store.
