New Tracks at FMX 2018
New year, new tracks: We all love our classic series of presentations, and a trip to FMX wouldn’t be the same without checking out long-term favourites such as Concept Art, Lighting & Rendering and Virtual Production. Nevertheless, there will be some fascinating new tracks that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
These are just some of the new tracks, but we will add further new series of presentations to this overview soon, so keep checking out our website or subscribe to our newsletter
to learn more about other program novelties in the upcoming weeks.
Creatures & Characters
Every year, fantastic creatures and characters come to life on the screen. The Creatures & Characters track puts a spotlight on some of these creations and how they were brought to digital life by employing increasingly complex visual effects and animation techniques
As virtual reality has arrived in the mass consumer markets, augmented reality is just in reach of advancing to the next innovative tool for blending real and virtual worlds. This track will take a closer look at the latest augmented reality platforms created by major corporations and what to expect from them in the future. These platforms clearly have the potential to build a solid foundation for the creation of next generation augmented reality experiences.
The track is curated by Prof. Volker Helzle
, Head of Research & Development at Animationsinstitut. Check out our website for further information
Creating 3D Assets from Real World Imagery
Reconstruction of real world objects and environments, static and dynamic, in order to create assets for creative production has received tremendous attention over the last decade. Creative industries eagerly adopted suitable solutions derived from reseach and developed ways to integrate the algorithms into their tools and professional workflows. A vibrant start-up scenery constantly provides news ideas to enter these markets. Prof. Aljosa Smolic
, curator of the track, is the SFI Research Professor of Creative Technologies at Trinity College Dublin. Find out more about his work here. Check out our website for further information
