Monday, 19 November 2012 00:00


Introducing guest speaker Simeon Balabanov from Chaos Group's Creative Specialist Team. Simeon has been working as a 3D artist and digital compositor for over 7 years in several visual studios.

And if you think this is all we are to occupy your time with, brace yourself for a surprise – we are inviting the VFX magicians of the ILP team. They will get you deep into the vast Pacific and the details of their effects shots from the epic “Kon-Tiki” - the coming Norwegian feature film on the legendary ocean journey of Thor Heyerdal in 1947.


ILP will guide you through the world of CG generated Great Whites and the challenging depths of a CG shark attack scene with the millions of particles and the fluid dynamics of the boiling ocean water, its surface mesh rendered by V-Ray.

  • V-Ray RT GPU improvements - CUDA support, support for new materials and textures, motion blur support, proxies and instancing with RT, using V-Ray RT for animation preview
  • Enhancements from latest service packs - V-Ray hair material, Ptex support in V-Ray for 3ds Max
