3DNAE Is Mettle's Proprietary 3D Environment.

3DNAE Powers FreeForm Pro & ShapeShifter AE.

We use industry leading openCL and openGL as well as proprietary algorithms to achieve unprecdented effects in Adobe After Effects.

Render Chart

In comparable tests, FreeForm Pro renders up to 20x (or more) faster than the version FreeForm for CS4 or the version that is bundled with After Effects CS5. Try it for yourself:

These speed gains in interactivity and rendering have permitted us to add features to FreeForm Pro that we would never even contemplate in older versions of FreeForm. Namely:

spacerbullet Adaptive Tessellation
spacerbullet Built in "Generator"
spacerbullet Depth Maps
spacerbullet Polygonal Alpha Clipping
spacerbullet Reflection Mapping
spacerbullet Shadow Casting

Supported GPU's

This is the list of supported GPUs based on Wikipedia pages:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units

The column DirectX must be above or equal to 10.0 and the OpenGL column must be above or equal to 2.1. You will need a model that has a minimum of 512 mb of VRAM or higher. We really recommend 1GB of VRAM or higher.

OpenCL - The open standard for parallel programming of heterogeneous systems*

OpenCLâ„¢ is the first open, royalty-free standard for cross-platform, parallel programming of modern processors found in personal computers, servers and handheld/embedded devices. OpenCL (Open Computing Language) greatly improves speed and responsiveness for a wide spectrum of applications in numerous market categories from gaming and entertainment to scientific and medical software.

OpenGL - The Industry Standard for High Performance Graphics*

OpenGL® is the most widely adopted 2D and 3D graphics API in the industry, bringing thousands of applications to a wide variety of computer platforms. It is window-system and operating-system independent as well as network-transparent. OpenGL enables developers of software for PC, workstation, and supercomputing hardware to create high-performance, visually compelling graphics software applications, in markets such as CAD, content creation, energy, entertainment, game development, manufacturing, medical, and virtual reality. OpenGL exposes all the features of the latest graphics hardware.
