SIGGRAPH 2015: Xroads of Discovery

Another SIGGRAPH Conference is about to begin and with it comes crowds from all over the world eager to find out what new ideas and emerging technologies will be presented and explored.

We’re excited to learn more about augmented/virtual reality. There are some great contenders in the Immersive Realities Contest and it will interesting to see who wins.

The CG market is headed in a new direction, and with 3D printing becoming even more popular, there’s also an awareness of 3D scanning happening, and an understanding of how it all fits into the visual effects industry. We’re looking forward to the Exhibitor Tech Talks, the Computer Animation Festival, and the Emerging Technologies demonstrations hoping to bring back some new techniques to the office and to our services. And of course we can’t wait to check out the exhibits.

But our favorite part of SIGGRAPH is seeing people we haven’t seen for years, or even since the last SIGGRAPH. With all the parties going on, we know there will be plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and make new ones. See you there!

Cyber Characters That Can Move It

If you are developing characters for film, television, or game project, you will certainly want them to move, and even more – you want them to come off with personality, punch, and pizzazz. Whether the character is dancing, fighting, or just being a zombie, in order for the audience to believe in the character their body language has got to show it.

There is a level of expectation when it comes to people because we know how we are supposed to interact and move. The best measurement of movement is what we can record and emulate. The real test of human movement is in the face. This is where we need the most focused attention. We need to stay out of the uncanny valley when dealing with conversations between the character and the real actors. Creating an Avatar using Motion Capture helps it move in the same likeness. At some point in the future we could even mix our cyber characters with real actors and not know the difference.

When this is mastered we will be headed toward an all CG or digital entertainment programming that looks like the real thing. It is an exciting time in the industry as the momentum of using digital elements permeates the screen. With more and more effects added with no seams the audience is left with the thought of, “How did they do that?”

We still need to master the clone in appearance and performance both in body language and facial performance, thus being the puppeteers for future programming.

Replicating Building Interiors & Exteriors

Making a movie, a television series, or a commercial seemed to be a lot simpler back in the day. But with all the technology available now, you can nearly do anything. During the development of a film or television project there is sometimes a need to replicate a structure or building. There are a couple ways to go about doing this. You can physically build a replica or you can create a digital model. Whichever you choose depends on time, budget, location, schedules, and availability.

Using a digital model brings some benefits, especially if the set will involve a flood, fire or explosion. One option is to 3D scan the interior and the exterior of the building or structure. The data is collected, aligned and stitched together, then it is modeled and textured to create a digital copy. With a digital copy nothing is set in stone. A scene can be shot take after take until it is perfect. The digital copy can also be inserted into any scene or be edited and reused later on. This is keeping in mind the concept of telling a very interesting story and not letting the visual effects take center stage.

The future will be in virtual reality and augmented reality with completely digital environments. There may be a database of digital structures and cities that anyone can choose from. It will just be a matter of designing the set and deciding how to use interactive digital doubles. Embrace the future.
