Weta Digital Partners with Avalon Studios & Streamliner Productions


WetaDigital.logo1Weta Digital, Streamliner and Avalon Studios have announced a new LED-stage virtual production service, based in Wellington, New Zealand.  The service brings together live stage expertise and expert screen production capability to offer a new production methodology.  The recent growth in real-time visual effects capabilities along with the health and safety benefits of working in New Zealand prompted the three elite players to put together a ready-to-use package for productions of all sizes.

The new workflow features large easily configurable LED panels that are able to display imagery well beyond 8K as a way to augment practical sets and often replace greenscreen shots for backgrounds and exteriors.   It also lends itself to easily combining footage from multiple stages, making it ideal for keeping crew sizes smaller.

The LED stage service is flexible and is built to scale for any size project.  The services are applicable as qualified spend for International and local screen funding schemes.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
