The Kurtis family is built on a 64-bit open architecture that allows mass automation.

Automate any tasks that you have in mind! The possibilities are endlessCreate and design processing graphs according to your needs and execute them en masse to your renderfarm : scene generation, simulation, rendering, data exports and much more!

Kurtis Python API allows you to use your usual software, libraries and tools, and fully integrates into your workflow. Kurtis is compatible with multiple programming languages such as Python (2.7.x/3.x), XML, Javascript, Mel, Maxscript…, and with main VFX and Animation software such as Maya, 3dsMax, Houdini, Realflow, Nuke, Mari, Katana, RV, Shotgun, Photoshop, etc.

Core Features

Graphs

Create nodes and code in visual programming to automate processing graphs.

Timeline

KURTIS is designed around an inheritance system of timelines. It centralizes and providestracking overview of data processing. It allows you to keep an overall vision and narrative aspect of the project.

Powerful Caching System

Kurtis is built on a caching system to limit useless processing. Only modified data are re-processed.

Agnostic

Kurtis is built on a C++ Agnostic Core that serves as the foundation for using other software and ensures its durability and scalability.

Presets

Kurtis allows you to save presets at multiple levels: built-in, site, projects, users. This feature is available for variables, nodes, graphs and global scripts.

Community

All built-in nodes are distributed under the Modified BSD License. Create your own nodes from scratch or from more than 120 example nodes. You can also download processing graph examples and scripts from our resources page. 

For everybody

Your R&D team can create global tools. They can test, check, benchmark, and debug by using graphs. TD’s can create and design nodes and graphs for production. Supervisors have a global view of the project, and can easily access any data. Artists have easy access to automate technical tasks and focus on their artistic work.
