SIGGRAPH Asia preview: extinction transmittance maps

SIGGRAPH Asia is fast approaching – the conference begins on Monday, 12th December and runs until the 15th at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. fxguide is of course attending and we’ll be covering many of the great talks and presentations.

Pascal Gautron

One of those talks will be from Technicolor Research & Innovation on Extinction Transmittance Maps, being presented in the production and visual effects section of the Technical Sketches.

In this special audio podcast, fxguide’s Mike Seymour talks to Technicolor’s Pascal Gautron about the sketch, which introduces a formulation for fast computation of single scattering in heterogeneous media, with applications in areas such as video games and production rendering. The co-authors of the sketch are Cyril Delalandre and Jean-Eudes Marvie, also from Technicolor Research & Innovation.

The sketch will be presented on Wednesday, 14th December at 11:00am – 12:45pm in Room S225.
