The quality of the content of screens in the home Another venue wide view toward stereoscopy. stereoscopic productions will very where 3D continues to gain We made sure that data Maya. much depend on the filmmakers said momentum is computer gaming in creates can be taken into Toxik.

So many of the technical hurdles intensive tasks of which there are You re not just composing You re. that were in the previous iterations many in the stereoscopic 3D pipeline not just color grading Being able. of projecting stereo and creating Supporting two separate streams to carry stereoscopy data between. stereo as well as obstacles with of digital image data to support the all those products is required when. digital cameras are being intrinsically stereoscopic model clearly requires you re working with that level. solved by these technologies a truckload of processing power of complexity in this medium. Intel and Autodesk found many, Efforts coordinated by industry areas where Maya s 10 million Phil McNally the global. groups including the Digital Cinema lines of code could be refined to stereoscopic FX supervisor of. Initiatives LLC www dcimovies com take advantage of parallelism DreamWorks Animation said Using. are paving the way toward wider Maya we have developed a 3D. distribution of 3D content On One of the things that has been toolset and workflow that gives. thehome front Intel is actively great now that Maya is part of our artists a highly interactive. enabling 3 d moviemaking autodesk retools maya,In the past McNally explained what you were. Stereoscopic 3D is the next big trying to do is take the idea of the storyboard and. innovation for the movie industry create an animated version of that storyboard. It is changing the way films are which supports the same compositional idea The. choices include which lens to use and what s the, created presented and ultimately actual framing of the shot going to be That s a. experienced by audiences very two dimensional workflow based on drawn. Jeffrey Katzenberg CEO DreamWorks Animation,images in a two dimensional view Even though.
we re in a 3D world it s still a two dimensional,view of that world What we re trying to encourage. now is different Although the storyboard is still, environment for working in stereo Using the various there as the basis of the idea in Maya the space. 3D display systems at DreamWorks artists are able to becomes three dimensional We re suddenly within a. view in stereo throughout the production pipeline spatial world and we can compose spatially Ultimately. audiences will see this as a spatial composition It s no. In Maya McNally continued we can interactively longer going to be seen as a flat 2D composition. control the 3D effect and see these changes happen in. real time We can quickly adjust the scene composition If you think of three dials with the lens choice framing. and even adjust a character to be in front of the screen and stereo depth McNally said those are the three things. or behind the screen all in a highly interactive we re trying to achieve a more fluid balance between. environment The example would be something like if. you re a sculptor working in clay now we have our Giving our film makers these highly interactive 3D. hands on the clay as opposed to being in some remote tools is enabling a whole new element to story telling For. room writing up parameters of what we want the clay DreamWorks Animation we couldn t be more excited. to be like about the potential for 3D said Ed Leonard CTO. DreamWorks Animation, The prevailing trend in today s animation pipelines. which are undergoing rapid evolution in the industry Monsters vs Aliens scheduled for release by. leading studios is to integrate processes throughout the DreamWorks Animation in March 2009 builds on the. pipeline for more fluid workflow and greater visualization stereoscopic techniques that have been refined over. possibilities Performing complex operations concurrently the past months including the latest capabilities in. helps speed overall workflow performance Advanced Maya 2009 for pre visualizing and previewing scenes on. multi core processing architectures as provided by Intel 3D capable display systems or projectors during editing. Core i7 processors code named Nehalem enable, the performance driven platform capabilities that are Maya can also support computer generated effects. revolutionizing digital cinema production techniques that rely on content imported from live image capture.

More and more studios Hall continued seem I strongly suspect Dager continued that once. to be adopting previs into their animation and layout the public at large has a taste of this people will start. process changing cameras and angles to work with demanding more 3D than they already are The success of. new ideas directors and animators come up with on the the Beowulf example wasn t atypical So far every digital. fly It will be interesting to see how this new process 3D movie that has come out has done at least a factor of. will affect filmmaking in the future If Kung Fu Panda 2 5 times the box office return of the same film in 2D. is any indication it could quickly become part of a. new standard in the creation of animated films As long as the public continues to demonstrate. their interest in 3D movies voting at the box office.
