By Posted by Jody Michelle Solis, Editor

Siggraph 2017, Los Angeles, takes place this week, July 30 to August 3. Make sure to stop by 4DViews’s exhibit booth 423.

Filming Volumetric: As easy as any other type of studio shooting, filming with 4DViews’ volumetric capture system gives you the ability to record a scene in a 360° free viewpoint. 4DViews technology uses multiple cameras set out around the actors to generate a virtual asset of the sequences filmed. This can be used in any CG production pipeline, offering unlimited options for visual effects, such as: free placement of the actors, free virtual camera viewpoints, scene crowding, duplication of extras, materials and shaders effects and much more.
