    Stylizing Volumes with Neural Networks



    In “Raya and The Last Dragon”, a blast of energy rings across the desiccated lands of the ancient world of Kumandra. This climactic story point represents a powerful force of magic and transformation, and as such, is art directed to be composed of stylized wave patterns and harmonic textures, as if created by sound vibrations. To achieve this, we artistically stylize a simulated volume using Neural Style Transfer. In this talk, we describe the integration of deep learning- based tools into our effects pipeline to accomplish this.
