Centroid Motion Capture India, Cineom, Green Rain, Liminal and Famous studios be part of forces to launch virtual production pop-up R&D lab
Cineom, Centroid Motion Capture India, Green Rain, Liminal & Famous Studios not too long ago introduced the launch of their virtual production pop-up R&D lab for the way forward for content material creation.
The post-production operations have turn out to be difficult amid the pandemic and filming at physical places is the largest hiccup. Therefore, virtual production is being seen to have a huge prospect. Adoption of technology to inform better stories has solely accelerated amid the present disaster.
They defined, “Virtual Production are just two words but these are thousands’ of different meaning involved in it. If we had to specify the new technology which every person is buzzing about, is the Virtual Production with LED wall, wherein you have the opportunity to do in-camera visual effects but we in our laboratory aren’t just limited to LED wall Virtual Production.”
The collaboration is supposed to carry collectively a number of parts that may add to the constancy and seamlessness of the content material, unlocking the following level of virtual production.
Speaking about what they’re set to carry to the desk, they shared, “We are moving one step ahead by doing an amalgamation of all the virtual production technologies together such as motion capture, real-time 3D compositing, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and real-time Pre-viz.”
A set-up as refined as that may certainly ease the workflow and supply extra flexibility to the filmmakers almost about shooting the content material with a virtual background.
Detailing the weather they’re planning to carry collectively, they shared, “The intention is to set up an LED wall studio with up to 4K resolution display and set the workflow pipelines right for the media & entertainment industry. We will be setting LED walls of the high quality (this is the most premium model of LED Display walls and would be the first setup in India of such high quality). We will be using these LED Display walls to produce the pixel content so the need for post-production and reduce the outdoor shoots.”
With this partnership, the quartet is aiming to supply a hybrid solution to the content material industry as the approaching collectively of forces will guarantee a extra significant utility of virtual production which will even include the wonders of Unreal Engine akin to the technology utilized in filming Mandalorian.
Speaking concerning the devoted pipeline they’re planning to place in place, they revealed, “Also, the main motive behind doing this is to solve all the missing links in the workflow and get the pipeline right so that the rest of people in the industry can start using it and leverage upon it. We have the best team on board to set up the right pipeline.”
They additional shared, “We will be the first ones in India to use the superior tracking technology (Stype) with this setup. Adding to this, we will get to achieve an integration of motion capture and zero density integration to addition in the foreground elements in the camera feed which is coming from the LED walls. We will also get to integrate real-time keying and compositing using LEDs Display as a green backdrop.”
With the quickly altering landscape of content material production and the challenges posed by the pandemic, we’re sure that this collaboration will ease the workflow woes and put the wind within the sails of the filmmaking scenario.
