Advanced Systems Group (ASG), a leading West Coast video and film integration firm, will present an Animation and Compositing Tools Workshop, May 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the South San Francisco Conference Center at 255 South Airport Blvd. Focused on computer animation, compositing and visual effects software, the free event will include in-depth product demonstrations and workshops, as well as free refreshments and prize raffles.
“This workshop will explore various creation software tools and offer advanced tips and tricks for animators,” said Dave Van Hoy, president of ASG. “It’s a unique opportunity to learn about modernized pipelines for improved workflows, as well as interact with the technology experts who provide the tools that empower today’s computer animation artists.”
Developed for animators, compositors, editors, modelers, riggers and producers, the workshop will include a panel discussion from the Visual Effects Society and explore motion capture for 3D character animation, digital sculpting, and texture painting. Some of the area’s top artists will offer live demos of Autodesk Maya, Motion Builder, Mudbox and 3ds Max, as well as Adobe After Effects, Apple Motion, and more. The event will also showcase a highly scalable render management system that can be quickly integrated into any production workflow, plus a file transfer system that enables large data set transfers over any network at maximum speed, source disk to destination disk, regardless of network conditions or distance.
