Also in r16 is improvements to enable higher quality content playback, including end-to-end 10-bit colour depth support for the latest flagship servers, the vx 4 and gx 2c, as well as support for wider color gamuts such as Rec2020, and a full HDR pipeline, enabling the use of the next generation of cameras, content and displays. The release also includes long-requested support for image sequence playback allowing users to play TIFF, TGA and DPX file sequences in either 8 or 10-bit. Support for the new NotchLC codec has also been added, which achieves visually lossless quality without sacrificing performance.
Last but not least, r16 also includes new workflows for Augmented Reality including support for a variety of camera tracking systems, which can be fed into the 3D stage as tracked objects and attached to virtual cameras. This is the first step on the road to releasing the full xR feature set, which will come in future releases.
