ReDefine at Virtual SIGGRAPH 2020

Hair and Fur in an Evolving Pipeline with ‘100% Wolf’ at Virtual SIGGRAPH 2020

Known for celebrating the VFX techniques at the cutting edge of technology, industry conference SIGGRAPH goes virtual this year and we are excited to present our debut session! 

Alongside our colleagues at DNEG, ReDefine will be contributing to a session titled ‘Hair & Fur in an Evolving Pipeline’, presented by ReDefine CG Supervisor François Schneider and DNEG Creature Supervisor Adam Vanner.

DNEG’s in-house fur software, Furball, has been in use since 2012 and has undergone significant evolution to adapt to the changing needs of productions since then. In this session, Adam will discuss how the software has evolved, including its recent use at DNEG on films such as ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Togo’, before handing over to François for an overview of how ReDefine adapted the use of the tool on animated feature ‘100% Wolf’ – including the complexities of creating 51 different furry characters for the movie.

‘100% Wolf’ is currently sitting at #3 in the UK Box Office. If you would like to know more about our work on the show, head over to our 100% Wolf Show Page.

Date: Wednesday, August 26th

Time: 08:00 am – 08:30 am
