This week we preview the Real-Time Live! sessions at SIGGRAPH 2014 in Vancouver. We talk to Real-Time Live! Chair Nico Gonzalez and jury member Ari Shapiro from USC Institute For Creative Technologies, who is also presenting a session called 'Make Your Own Avatar.'
SIGGRAPH 2014 begins on 10 August at the Vancouver Convention Center, and fxguide will be there covering the event. You can find out more about the Real-Time Live! sessions at SIGGRAPH's website, including Destruction Sequences in Call of Duty: Ghosts, Maturing the Virtual Production Workflow: Interactive Path Tracing for Filmmakers, NVIDIA FlameWorks: Real-Time Fire Simulation and more.
And here's a USC ICT video describing the avatar capture and simulation process.
