USD Project Workflows“ | Paul Golter, Technical Directing, Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg

This talk is about the USD pipeline of the diploma project “Underwater” at Animationsinstitut. This talk will not focus on theoretical USD concepts, but rather show how to structure a project with USD. You will learn how to create assets and shots with the USD and how all USD data is organized on the hard drive.

„Unreal Nerfs“ | Max Schmiererb.ReX

The polygon is dead, long live the polygon? Gaussian Splatting is on everyone’s lips, whether for “digital twins” of real film sets or as a creative way to create assets for virtual worlds. But how exactly do these “Gaussian Splats” work – and what are the limits of the technology? Can they be combined with conventional technologies? In this short talk, we will delve deeper into the topic and take a look at what is already possible with a real-time engine like Unreal.

„Projectionmapping & Künstliche Intelligenz“ | Maximilian PfistererFrischvergiftung

Frischvergiftung from Stuttgart is already successfully using imaging AI in its workflows. In projection mappings to completely transform existing buildings, to create visuals for music festivals or in collaboration with Andreas Hykade to generate morphings between given artworks. Today, the Stuttgart-based studio is giving us some insights and providing keywords to get started.
