USD Composer Overview

NVIDIA Omniverse™ USD Composer is an Omniverse app for world-building that allows users to assemble, light, simulate and render large scale scenes. It is built using NVIDIA Omniverse™ Kit. The Scene Description and in-memory model is based on Pixar’s USD. Omniverse USD Composer takes advantage of the advanced workflows of USD like Layers, Variants, Instancing and much more.

Coupled with the MDL Material Description and an RTX based renderer running on an NVIDIA RTX graphics card, you can generate visually compelling and physically accurate worlds. Omniverse USD Composer is integrated with Pixar’s Hydra, and therefore can be used to display USD content in any Hydra renderer (e.g Storm, Embree, PRMan etc) which has been built against the appropriate version of USD.

When connected to a Omniverse Nucleus server, worlds can be authored LIVE across multiple Omniverse applications, machines and users for advanced collaborative workflows.
