It's that special time of year in computer graphics!  We hope you can join us at SIGGRAPH 2017 in sunny Los Angeles – and as always, we would love to learn about how you're using Arnold in your projects and catch up with our amazing customers. You'll find Marcos and other members of the Arnold development team around the conference in several presentations.  In addition, you'll spot Arnold at a number of 3rd-party partner booths and throughout the conference. If you need one-on-one time please contact us for a private meeting. We hope you can join us to hear what we have been up to, learn more about what's new in Arnold 5.0, and stay tuned for some very exciting news that we'll disclose during Siggraph.
