Tech Giant Nvidia Makes Metaverse-Creating Software Completely Free For Creators

Tech giant Nvidia has now made Omniverse — its real-time 3D simulation and design collaboration platform, available to artists and creators, completely for free. The firm made the announcement on Tuesday during a Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. At the event, Nvidia also revealed some new features that have just been added to the product, dubbing it the “metaverse for engineers.”

Nvidia Adds New Features To The Omniverse

Nvidia also announced that the Omniverse has been updated with new features. Amongst the new features is the one-click collaboration tool called Nucleus Cloud. The firm has also added new extensions, connectors, and asset libraries built by some of Nvidia’s partners.

The partners include digital asset libraries and 3D marketplaces like Sketchfab, TurboSquid by Shutterstock, Twinbru, and CGTrader.

How Is The Omniverse Supposed To Help Creators?

Designers and creators in general can create 3D assets and scenes from their computer using the Omniverse. This is because the Omniverse combines artificial intelligence (AI), scalable computing, simulation tools, and graphics to connect different 3D design worlds. These worlds, even though they are made with incompatible tools, can be merged into a shared virtual scene with the help of the Omniverse.

Recall that the beta version of Omniverse launched in early 2021 and a paid subscription version soon followed by November of the same year. Even, more than 100,000 creators have downloaded the Omniverse according to the firm.

But as Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said during a presentation at Computex last summer, the company envisions “many types of metaverses”. Amongst the types would be the NFT-based augmented reality version and then the video game version.
