Apple has recently called on CG artists and graphic designers to make a series of short films using the advanced technologies of iMac Pro to show how powerful the iMac Pro is as powerful which has been introduced as the “Most Powerful Mac”.
A group of artists, including creator Erin Sarofsky, graphic designer Esteban Diacano, 3D artist Luigi Honarat, director and designer Michelle Dougherty, accepted Apple’s call and took 6 short films, taking the iMac Pro to the production hub.
The resulting short commercials do not look too bad. Apple, along with commercials, has also released backstage footage of the development process of these films.
You can watch 6 commercials filmini and behind-the-scenes footage created using iMac Pro on Apple’s specially prepared webpage:
To demonstrate the power of iMac Pro, Apple invited a group of renowned filmmakers, CG artists, and motion graphics designers to create a personal piece of work using its advanced technologies. The project was an opportunity for each of them to use this incredibly capable tool to define power through the films they made. From concept development through final preparations for render, iMac Pro proved to be the ultimate creative partner.
Apple has shared commercials created with iMac Pro on YouTube, albeit not all of them.
More about iMac Pro
An iMac with 4 cores is remarkable enough. But an iMac with 8, 10, 14, or 18 cores is an entirely different creature. Add Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, and iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance multicore processing with single-thread performance. With new AVX-512 vector instructions and a new cache architecture, the processor handles even more data — even more quickly. Which means you can render images, edit up to 8K video, manipulate photos, create real-time audio effects, or compile your next five-star app — all at lightning speed.
Featuring Radeon Pro Vega graphics, iMac Pro delivers the best workstation-class graphics of any Mac. The first Mac with Vega architecture features up to 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory, which helps deliver a major jump in performance — up to two times faster than any other iMac GPU and up to three times faster than the GPU in Mac Pro. This translates to higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, more lifelike special effects, and gameplay at max settings. It also supports both single- and half-precision computing, so operations that don’t require a full 32 bits of precision can be performed twice as fast. How fast? Up to 22 teraflops fast.
