Title:

    Volumetric effects in a Snap

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    Volumetric effects have become a mainstay of the visual effects community over the past decade. With many third-party solutions available, what are the benefits and challenges of creating a proprietary system? We outline Snap, Animal Logic’s grid-based simulation and volumetric rendering framework used in Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole (LotG) and Sucker Punch (SP).
