Player Bundle

Add V-Ray and Pdplayer to your CG Arsenal

Streamline your workflow with V-Ray and Pdplayer! achieve amazing results with V-Ray and benefit from the speed, easy integration and extensive amount of extra features offered in the Pdplayer - the professional image sequence player and viewer. Buy this bundle and get Pdplayer for only $40.

"While Pdplayer can be seen as a flipbook tool, it is in fact a great deal more powerful than that. It is both extremely simple, and extremely powerful. It allows us to load and view frame sequences extremely fast. However, it can do a lot more. From simple composites, color corrects, notation layers, output options, even saving comps into After Effects and Nuke scripts, I have yet to see a program that matches the feature set of Pdplayer!"
