On a New Road

Hanging out at SIGGRAPHSunday July 25, 2010
I'm spending this week hanging out at my favorite Geek+Artist Fest: SIGGRAPH. The folks from Weta did a great presentation today on the work they did on Avatar. Between their fascinating simulation of muscle dynamics for accurate skin deformations, the many ways they used deep alpha maps & abused the immense size of their disk farm, to the studly tricks they did with spherical harmonics to fake out global illumination, I'm impressed. Huge fun.

James, it was great running into you at SIGGRAPH. I couldn't find your email address. Will you send me one?
