Technology Committee Activities

The Visual Effects Society Technology Committee exists to establish industry best practices to enable VFX and Animation clients and vendors to collaborate more efficiently. The Technology Committee works on several projects at a time and selects projects that are outward facing, increase the visibility of the VES, and items we can accomplish in roughly a 12 month time-frame.

Cinematic Color is an introduction to the color pipelines behind modern feature film visual effects and animation.

The VES camera reports is a standardized exchange format to aid with ingesting camera report data into studio pipelines. It also provides a reference implementation using Filemaker.

Security best practices is a guide for studios to hand out to artists.

VFX Reference Platform is a set of tool and library versions to be used as a common target platform for building software for the VFX and Animation industry.

The VES Transfer Specifications document provides a reference template that can be used to effectively define how visual effects vendors should ingest, process and deliver image data to production side visual effects departments.

Covid-19 Best Practices document collects advice from members of the VES Technology committee and members of the community sharing solutions to common problems we encountered as we transferred to work from home workflows that are for security and technical reasons difficult in our industry.
