Speaker: Wilkie, Alexander (Charles University in Prague)


Predictive rendering is normally thought of as a technology stack which is mainly useful for virtual prototyping of appearance critical objects. However, such technologies also turned out to be surprisingly useful for high quality movie VFX. After giving an overview of the research portfolio of our group in Prague, I will give a brief overview of which aspects make predictive rendering appealing to the VFX industry, and outline a few technological advances of the past years.



Alexander Wilkie is an associate professor at Charles University in Prague, where he leads the Computer Graphics group. He also has twice been a visiting professor at the research labs of Weta Digital in New Zealand, and has made contributions to the technology stack used by them for major movie productions.
