Before NVIDIA Instant NeRF, creating 3D scenes required specialized equipment, expertise and lots of time and money. Now it just takes a few photos and a few minutes. The award-winning tool, free to use for noncommercial purposes, processes static images (or video files) into realistically rendered 3D scenes using a new AI-based technology called neural radiance fields, or NeRF. NVIDIA’s Director of Research Alexander Keller believes NeRF “could ultimately be as important to 3D graphics as digital cameras have been to modern photography.” Tens of thousands of developers and 3D content creators have downloaded Instant NeRF’s codebase since its debut early this year.
