Postoffice will take a deep dive into the creation of photoreal CGI animals — from sculpting muscles and simulating fat, to generating fur and final renders. Learn about the VFX workflows of the Amsterdam-based studio, while also hearing why they’re transitioning from Maya to Houdini. Ambassadors’ Head of 3D will present how the studio uses V-Ray to craft miniature worlds and charismatic characters, taking a close look at recent CG animations for ASN Bank and Unox. There will be insights galore about how they capture reference on set, and how they use Maya, Yeti and Houdini to blend pint-sized characters into handcrafted worlds. We'll also host a booth where you can see the latest V-Ray features, and find out how to make the most of Chaos Group's software.
Discover the incredible features of V-Ray for architecture and design at Chaos Group’s debut Berlin meetup.

Attendees can expect in-depth talks from Cheil Design Architect Mahmoud El Hakim, Product Visualization Specialist and Photographer Andreas Moos, and our friends from SketchUp who’ll demonstrate the dream team of their platform with V-Ray. We’ll finish the day with networking opportunities — and beer.
You're invited to join us, and our special guests from VFX studios LUXX, GoodBye Kansas, Ambassadors and unexpected, in the Mannheim Room on May 1.
