XR Network+ online seminar: AI composure
Join Florian Block, Professor of Digital Creativity at the University of York and Richard Wormwell, Head of Studio Innovation at dock10, to hear about a new R&D project which is exploring an entirely new approach for VP practice.
Light interactions are a key element of Virtual Production. They can manifest in various ways, such as actors being illuminated by light sources in the virtual environment.
In single-camera movie productions (where one primary camera is used to capture scenes), these effects can be achieved through a combination of large walls of LED panels (known as LED volumes) situated behind the actor and visual effects added in post-production.
These techniques are unsuited, however, for live or ‘as live’ TV productions that use multi-camera green screen studios, including sports reporting, music performances, or game shows.
The AI composure project is developing an AI-powered compositing pipeline that seeks to remove constraints on current light interactions in green-screen productions.
