If you are a VFX Sup, or are planning on working with a cinematographer, learn what you can request or suggest with all of these new tools by CinCraft. This Introduction to CinCraft is good for all to know.  THIS EVENT was SOLD OUT.

Almost all movies today have some digital manipulation, as well as many, if not thousands, of VFX shots inserted as well. The task of creating those images of the real world, that will finally be manipulated, rests on the camera lens as its "eye". It's at that first point where the light from the analog world makes its way in and becomes encoded digitally.

We will all gather to take a look at several of the CinCraft tools, as well as look at some examples of them in action.

The CSULB Shark Lab is one of the largest telemetry labs in the US and was a pioneer in the development and use of acoustic telemetry in the marine environment. 

Historically, The CSULB Shark Lab study of sharks was significantly limited by lack of appropriate technology and now the Shark Lab employs a wide array of technologies (acoustic and satellite telemetry tracking, autonomous shark tracking robots, drones, underwater video systems and eDNA). The Shark Lab is now using these technologies to study white sharks and their behaviors while they share beach habitats with people, which has resulted in large data sets. One of the CSULB Shark Lab goals is developing new tools to visualize and animate these data in ways the public can appreciate and understand the behavior of these animals.

This event is brought to you by both the LA chapter and the San Francisco chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH.
