CHICAGO — SIGGRAPH 2012 (www.siggraph.org) is looking for cutting-edge Real-Time Live! content that will be presented as part of this year’s Computer Animation Festival. The show will take place in Los Angeles this August and will bring together thousands of computer graphics and interactive technology professionals.
All content that is interactively controlled and rendered in realtime will be considered for Real-Time Live! Submissions must be able to be demonstrated in front of a live audience.
“Each year the quality and diversity in realtime submissions showcases the best work occurring in the industry,” notes Jason Smith, SIGGRAPH 2012 Real-Time Live! chair and digital production supervisor at LucasArts. “This year’s program will continue this trend of dynamic innovation.”
This program debuted in 2009 and provides SIGGRAPH attendees with access to the industry’s pioneering work in the Computer Animation Festival. The Real-Time Live! submission deadline is April 9. All realtime work will be reviewed by a professional jury of industry experts from traditional computer graphics, video games, and research organizations. Entries will be judged on creativity, innovation, performance, and the ability to render in realtime in front of a live audience. The top selections will be played and demonstrated live on a PC or game console.
