Last year DreamWorks announced they would be open-sourcing their award-winning MoonRay renderer. Back in March that dream was realized with OpenMoonRay being published for this renderer that has been used for films like Puss In Boots: The Last Wish, The Bad Guys, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and other films. OpenMoonRay 1.1 is now available as the first update to this professional renderer since it was open-sourced last quarter.

OpenMoonRay 1.1 brings new extensions for its Cryptomatte support, the ability to have normal-oriented curves, updates to Moonshine, USD integration updates, and a wide variety of fixes. DreamWorks has also published its "MoonRayWidget" model used in its documentation and elsewhere under an ASWF Digital Assets License v1.1.
