Highlighting CINEMA 4D R14, BodyPaint 3D R14, Singapore History Alive with 3D! and Professional 3D Courses
SIGGRAPH Asia conference attracts the most respected technical and creative people from all over the world. Without a doubt, the5th ACM SIGGRAPH Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Asia (SIGGRAPH Asia 2012) held from 28 November – 1 December 2012 at Singapore EXPO continues to do that. Drawing 4,250 attendees from 56 countries, SIGGRAPH Asia has reconfirmed itself as the leading computer graphics and interactive techniques conference and exhibition in Asia Pacific.
Overall, 321 presentations, talks and panels took place across all the programs and it had ignited vibrant and engaging discussions on the developments, innovations and future trends of computer graphics and interactive techniques.
IM Innovations is glad to be part of this spectacular event for the second time. This year, we are honored to be participating as MAXON Competence Centre Singapore – ASEAN as well. We demonstrated and showcased the following powerful tools as well as information about available CINEMA 4D training courses:
1. The newly released CINEMA 4D R14, the next generation of its industry-leading 3D motion graphics, visual effects, painting and rendering software application. Recipient of the Computer Graphics World (CGW) Magazine’s SIGGRAPH 2012 Silver Edge Award, CINEMA R14 delivers eagerly awaited features including a new, fully integrated sculpting system, new camera matching functionality, the debut of exchange plugins to two key applications (The Foundry‘s NUKE and Adobe Photoshop Extended), improved integration with Adobe After Effects and a huge number of other powerful workflow feature enhancements. CINEMA 4D is the choice for artists and designers looking to add 3D to their toolset. Motion graphics/VFX artists and visualization designers will benefit from features that accelerate productivity to produce spectacular 3D content more fluidly and collaborate with increased efficiency.
2. The newly released BodyPaint 3D R14, MAXON’s leading 3D painting application. The major addition to BodyPaint 3D R14 is the all-new sculpting toolset, which allows users to add details and refinements to their models and bake displacement and normal textures for use in their main 3D application.
3.Singapore History Alive with 3D!, - a Multimedia Game-based Teaching and Learning Solution, supported by Media Development Authority of Singapore. Created with CINEMA 4D and Unity3D, it comprises 3D games, educational videos, quizzes and presentation slides to make learning history engaging, fun and exciting. Wandering around a virtual environment when Singapore was a fishing village in 1819, players encounter and interact with key historical figures like Sir Stamford Raffles or Sultan Hussein to learn about their contributions to Singapore. Players will also able to explore old Chinatown, Kampong Glam, Little India and Boat Quay.
4. A series of Professional 3D Courses to equip participants with a palette of power tools to create splendid works quickly. Our courses are conducted using CINEMA 4D and have been attended by participants from SONY Pictures Entertainment Networks, MediaCorp, The Walt Disney Competition, ESPN Star Sports, Home Box Office and many more.
