NEXT SECTION MEETING: 

 

SMPTE Event at Sim Los Angeles

Thursday, February 21st

Beyond Gaming:
Real-Time Virtualization in TV and Cinema Production
Using Game Development Engines

SMPTE is the organization whose standards work has supported a century of advances in entertainment technology. Yet productions are moving beyond the well-known techniques such as storyboards, animatics, and pre-vis and adopting new technology from the gaming industry such as real-time visualization. This paradigm shift has come about due to the creation of game development engines by Unity 3D and Epic Games Unreal Engine. These real-time game engines and software applications can exploit the rendering power of these systems thus providing real-time visualization for directors and storytellers during production. 

At the February SMPTE Hollywood Section meeting, we’ll have the experts discuss how game engines are ‘game changers’ in the pre and post production software development of advanced tools such as Lightcraft’s Halide, Faceware’s Live as well as Digital Mike utilizing the Unreal Game Engine.
