Hello CSC Members!
We are hosting a faculty talk this Thursday, July 11 in MC 4041:
3D Movies and Computer Science
by Lesley Northam
While humans started making 3D motion pictures in the 1800's, several
technical and artistic challenges prevented widespread interest in the
medium. By investing heavily in a computerized production pipeline,
James Cameron's 2009 release of Avatar ushered in an era of mainstream
interest in 3D film. However, many technical and artistic problems
still find their way into otherwise-modern 3D movies. The talk
explores some of these problems while introducing the fundamentals of
3D film-making from a CS perspective.
Hope to see you there!
