What is Altus?

Innobright’s Altus is the world’s first multi-platform, Monte Carlo render denoising system. We let you generate fast, noisy renders with smaller samples per pixel (SPP) and filter them to produce high quality images & animation. We give you the quality you want, in a fraction of the time.

Altus is a post-processing filter to remove noise from renders created with physically-based Monte Carlo rendering methods. Most photorealistic renderers use this method of path generation; see Integration with Third Party Software for more information.

It operates in image space with no direct knowledge of scene geometry required. It does, however require two sets of images and feature information in the form of AOVs output from the renderer.
