Art Imitates Life: Art Directable
Procedural Tools in Large-Scale Production
Computer graphics in film are required to portray both physical accuracy and unrestrained creative freedom. The evolution of flexible procedural tools at Weta Digital means artists can achieve physically plausible recreations of nature that can be easily edited to fulfil the creative needs of a shot without limiting realism and complexity.
Weta Digital’s Head of Software Engineering Paolo Selva will discuss the evolution of Weta Digital’s in-house procedural tools, using recent large-scale projects, Avengers: Infinity Warand Maze Runner: The Death Cure to showcase the current state of the technology.
