Optimization of 3D assets to reduce the amount of data that is
rendered is crucial to speed up video games and provide stable
frame rates and a smooth experience for the gamer. When adopting a
manual approach this task takes countless hours and may result in
an inconsistent outcome that may affect how well the game plays. As
one of the leading middleware solutions, and the standard for
high-quality video games needing Level of Detail optimization,
Simplygon is developed with game development in mind and answers
the call by offering to eliminate tedious and expensive manual
Capcom Senior Producer for DmC, Alex Jones comments
"Late development geometry optimization is one of the most
labor intensive aspects of game development, and Simplygon allows
my team to effectively and efficiently optimize and polish far more
of the game than we would be able to otherwise, ensuring we have
large, detailed worlds that run at a consistent
framerate. It's an invaluable resource."
