DreamWorks releases tool with which he made his last film animation
This Wednesday DreamWorks released in the U.S. animated film of U.S. $145 million budget ‘ Rise of the Guardians ‘(‘ The Origin of the Guardians’ in English). The remarkable thing is that the movie studio released one of the tools that made the special effects of the film, which is now free to download and open source.
This means that all amateur entertainers wishing to replicate the three-dimensional special effects of the film-like smoke or amorphous-element may occupy seamless file format OpenVDB , which allows you to store and handle efficiently a large amount of volumetric information usually found in the production of animated films.
The tool has been used for films such as DreamWorks ‘Puss in Boots’ and ‘Madagascar 3: Going to Europe’, and the intention of the study with this action, as the special effects supervisor for ‘Rise of the Guardians’ David Prescott, is that “OpenVDB eventually become a standard Animation industry, which ultimately benefits us”
