Title:

    Lighting Up The Smurfs Enchanted Forest

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    In Smurfs: The Lost Village, the enchanted forest is central to the environment and story. The task was to create millions of exotic plants of hundreds of different species spreading across the forest. The plants in the forest emit light when in the shade, and stop when they are hit by sunlight. We revisited the way in which our lighting tool creates lights to scale to huge light counts without compromising on the ability to fine tune lighting through features like light linking. This lead to simplified workflows for the artists who were able to easily manipulate shots with up to several millions of individual lights.
