Based in Houston, Texas, Oceaneering is a global player in engineered services and products for the offshore energy industry. With clients looking for a long-term partner to deliver safe and stable maintenance operations for multiple-years to decades at a time, Oceaneering’s Digital Innovation Design Team was tasked with reassuring potential customers through simulation-based demos.
“Our artists excel at creating 3D models, but the systems in place did not let us move to the next level where we could simulate unique scenarios or make changes on the fly,” said Stevens. “Even the smallest change required the scene to be re-rendered, easily taking five days or more.”
Offering high-fidelity dynamics, cable-systems and hydrodynamics, Vortex Studio presented a robust feature set, perfect for the marine focused company.
