- Fixed a crash on linux only when using MassSpring Behavior on null-length bones
- Fixed adding cache to a closed tab in the Simulation Cache Library
- Fixed Bump Map not working when using motion blur in Renderman For Katana
- Fixed int id identifier in Golaem For Renderman
- Fixed Curve looping in the Steer Behavior
- Fixed Bone Weights Attributes Attribute Editor in the LookAt Behavior
- Fixed Display Entity Type Attributes Attribute Editor in the EntityType Node
- Fixed traffic steer angle in the ChannelCperator Behavior
- Fixed slot orientations with Populate on Traffic curves
- Fixed Populate on curve with traffic curves distances, when crowd unit is not meters
- Fixed export of some ground mesh that were producing bad Layout ground adaptation
- Added entityIds flag in the glmCrowdSimulationExporter command

Since its launch in 2011, Golaem has been adopted by many of the key facilities in the VFX industry, featuring in no fewer than four separate studios’ work on Game of Thrones.

It was developed with the aim of providing a more intutive workflow than traditional simulation software, with users able to use Maya’s native tools to control crowd behaviour.

Golaem also includes toolsets for building custom AI logic, generating automatic variations of crowd characters, and interactively previewing and editing simulations.

Output is natively compatible with Arnold, Guerilla Render, Redshift, RenderMan and V-Ray; and users can output to other DCC tools for rendering, including 3ds Max, Houdini and Unreal Engine.

The key change in Golaem 7.3 is the stable release of the new USD procedural plugin, enabling users to export Golaem simulation caches to other DCC software in the now-VFX-industry-standard USD format.

Readymade plugins are available for Houdini, Katana and the USD standalone, but Golaem has now released the source code under an LGPL licence for studios that need to create plugins for other software. The release also adds support for animation layers within the posture and rig layers of the Layout Tool.

Golaem also now supports proper skinning for characters with procedural fur, enabling fur to move more naturally with the crowd animation. The new workflow is compatible with any system that can export fur as Maya or Alembic curves, including third-party plugins like Yeti and Ornatrix.

The updates also continue the trend established in recent releases of broadening Golaem from a pure crowd simulation system to a more general shot layout tool.

The Population Tool, used to place crowd characters in a scene, gets a new Scatter Mode aimed at distributing environment objects like trees, rocks and buildings.

Assets can be scattered around random ‘seed’ positions on a terrain, or to custom regions of it; and decimated according to surface angle or distance from an object.
