HDRI Lighting Technique made simple for VFX

Thursday, 17 September 2009 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm

Gathering light data on set and location garners mixed results depending on your knowledge of what is possible and what is needed.  The quality of your HDRI data is dependent on the quality and accuracy of the gathering techniques you employ.

This presentation will cover various options for data collection and discuss processing and evaluation of the HDRI data collected to produce photo-real renders.  We will also discuss the technical and financial benefits of rendering with HDRI data and show how capturing accurate HDRI’s will retain the Director of Photography's vision of on set lighting choices in the CG world; thereby not only helping to improve the quality of the images, but also reducing costs for both vendor and producer alike.

VFX clips from G-FORCE, G.I. JOE and THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON  will be screened and the in depth use of HDRI lighting technology will be discussed.
