Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Stranger Things and Digital Humans headline blockbuster presentation roster
The dust has settled on this year’s SIGGRAPH – and it’s been our best yet. Chaos Group hosted two V-Ray Days and they proved to be packed for every presentation.
We kicked things off with the V-Ray for Educators Breakfast. Attendees were updated on Chaos Group’s educational program and our new policies for training using V-Ray courseware.
Our first customer presentation of the day, from Dan Akers and Jean Baptiste Cambier of Blur Studio, took us behind the scenes of the company’s game trailers and cinematics for Far Cry 5. The company went to great lengths to create authentic worlds in CGI, even driving hundreds of miles to scout out and model the perfect dive bar.
Next up was Chad Wanstreet, who talked about how FuseFX envisaged a seamless tracking shot through a hellish landscape, and some devilish bunnies, for the popular TV series American Gods.
