The Foundry's KATANA - What's going on?

KATANA is a 3D application designed for lookdev and lighting in an asset based pipeline. It is designed as the tool to assemble all the assets created by different departments, create lights, add shaders, set edits and overrides, and export passes to render in a range of different production renderers.

The Foundry is now working to make KATANA into it's own product, to make it an adaptable solution suitable for use in a wide range of different pipelines.
