Title:


    VPET - Virtual Production Editing Tools

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 23


Description:


    The work on intuitive Virtual Production tools at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg has focused on an open platform tied to existing film creation pipelines. The Virtual Production Editing Tools (VPET) started in a former project on Virtual Production funded by the European Union and are published and constantly updated on the open source software development platform Github. We introduce an intuitive workflow where Augmented Reality, insideout tracking and real-time color keying can be applied on the fly to extend a real movie set with editable, virtual extensions in a collaborative setup.
