Animal Logic



Filament is Animal Logic’s proprietary node-based lighting tool for producing lights and render passes.

It was developed in 2018 for Peter Rabbit 2 to be a Qt-based application that sits at the top of the software stack, allowing lighting artists to interact with USD scenes, design Grip graphs and perform routine pipeline actions. Filament can be run standalone or inside Maya. It’s written in Python, which is easily extensible by TDs, while optimised low-level libraries handle performant operations.
