Exclusive Demos Held at Departure Lounge’s New Virtual Production Studio; Additional Demos with Dell (Booth# 527) and HP (Booth# 1011), Featuring Virtual Reality and UE Environments
During SIGGRAPH 2022, Arcturus, a pioneer in the field of volumetric video, is teaming up with some of the biggest names in virtual production to give showgoers a sneak peek at the future of digital environments for film and episodics. Utilizing volumetric video, virtual production studios can now populate entire digital scenes with three-dimensional, live action performances that can be edited to fit. Those characters will then appear on LED walls to ensure more realistic background characters, while also offering faster turnaround.
“The demand for virtual production is so high that it has begun to change the way filmmakers and content creators approach visual effects,” said Kamal Mistry, Arcturus CEO. “By adding volumetric video tools into that mix, it makes virtual production more realistic, while also giving creators new options for storytellers.”
Utilizing a game engine, virtual production creators can generate a full, photorealistic three-dimensional digital scene, depicting anything from a modern city street to an alien world. Rather than painstakingly designing digital background characters by hand or relying on 2D recordings, creators can instead capture a live-action performer in a volumetric stage to generate a 3D model of them, viewable from any angle. Artists and filmmakers can then upload that asset into Arcturus’ HoloSuite volumetric video toolset, where they can edit everything from its movement to head positioning.
