Selena Kuznikov Visual effects house DNEG has acquired the exclusive license to Ziva from Unity. The company will also onboard a significant proportion of the Ziva team.

The Ziva toolset powers the creation of digital characters and creatures for film, TV and gaming cinematics.

DNEG CEO Namit Malhotra said in a statement that the transaction furthers the company’s strategy of investment in technology. “The integration of the Ziva toolset into our technology stack helps our artists to deliver incredible cinematic performances and experiences for discerning movie-lovers worldwide, and also supports our strategic move into immersive experiences with the launch of DNEG IXP, enabling the creation of feature film-quality digital characters and creatures in gaming and immersive environments,” Malhotra said.

DNEG Global CTO Paul Salvini said: “Bringing the Ziva toolset in-house – along with a significant proportion of the team behind it – is a perfect fit for DNEG and gives us a strong competitive advantage in the development of sophisticated and wholly convincing digital characters and creatures.
