  • Command-Line Denoiser

    Altus ServerPro includes a command-line denoiser. It can be managed by config files, automated by popular render-farm software, and can be scripted to work your way.

  • Temporal Filtering for Animations

    Altus can take in neighboring frames while denoising animations. This will prevent flickering and other noisy artifacts.

  • Volumetrics

    Remove the noise while retaining the sense of volume and turbulence. Altus preserves the high frequency details that give volumetric's their realism.

  • Reflection/Refraction

    Get sharp refractions/reflections and smooth glossy surfaces at the same time. Altus reduces the samples required to get a smooth reflection.

  • Subsurface Scattering

    Subsurface scattering requiring too many samples? Altus can take the transmission/SSS AOV information and smooth the noise while retaining shape, color, and texture details.

  • Motion Blur and Depth of Field

    Altus smooths out DOF while keeping forground/background separation. With global position AOVs, Altus gains insight into the scene that other denoisers lack.

  • Denoising Textures

    Remove the noise while keeping texture details. Colors, Normals, Displacement, can be preserved, keeping your material definition the way you want it.

  • Denoising Global/Indirect Lighting

    Have noisy lighting? Altus can denoise your AOVs too giving you smooth global illumination at a fraction of the samples.

  • Denoising all AOVs

    Altus can denoise all your AOVs simultaniously. With Altus you can select which AOVs to input to Altus and a different set of AOVs to denoise.
