Unity Technologies Acquires Artomatix
Sure Valley Ventures initially invested €2.7 million in Artomatix in 2018, which you can learn more about in a previous article here.
Under the terms of the acquisition, Artomatix will join Unity while continuing to operate out of Dublin, Ireland where the team is expected to grow exponentially over the next two years in the areas of research and development.
According to Techcrunch “the Dublin startup builds developer tools that allow game studios to more easily create deep learning-enhanced textures that scale more convincingly.
Developers can use the startup’s ArtEngine platform to bring real-world materials to their game worlds, adapting the visual patterns to their 3D worlds more quickly than existing toolsets while eliminating seams and irregularities. ArtEngine uses AI to identify visual flaws in replications and saves developers from having to endlessly tweak environments.”
