Unity is buying Digital Weta

Unity has reached a definitive agreement to buy Wet Digital, the technology company that created the special effects for several Hollywood important films, including The Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, planet of the SIMIAN, VIDE black, and avatar. Over the years, Wet Digital technology has provided filmmakers incredible tools to create realistic hair and skin, facial technology and more. After this purchase, all game developers that use Unity will have access to these same tools, which will allow them to create new graphics and incredible worlds. The movement could be enormous not only for Unity, but for the game industry as a whole.

Wet Digital is currently owned by Peter Jackson. The entertainment teams and visual effects of the company will not leave anywhere; These are being renamed as Getafe. After the sale, Wet Digital will become part of Unity, and its technology will be licensed to Getafe, which is expected to be the greatest Unity client in the media space and entertainment. According to IGN, the sale will cost Unity $1.62 billion, which will be paid through a combination of cash and actions. Unity is not just winning technology; It is expected that 275 of Wet engineers will join Unity after the sale. At this time, a date for purchase has not been announced, but it is expected to take place before the end of the year.

In one public publication of Unity Marc Written, senior vice president and general manager at Unity Create Solutions, talked about the possibilities for more people to get access to this technology.

Unity Acquires Weta Digital - Official VFX Tools Sharing Announcement Trailer «The unified tools and the incredible scientists and technologists of Wet Digital will accelerate our mission to provide creators with easy-to-use and high-performance tools to give life to their visions. This channeling has been developed with a mindset of artists first and the result is an incredible set of tools capable of reaching the top of the visual effects (VFX) forged within the intransigent schedules of hundreds of film and television productions «, wrote Written.
