What’s it all about:

Special Guest Presentation:
Daniel Heckenberg with Quill: Birds of a Feather Tool

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole features over 60 distinctive, art-directed, hyper-realistic feathered characters. Animal Logic developed a procedural feathering pipeline, Quill, that allows a procedural representation of feathers with automatic de-intersection, animation, character effects, and dynamics, and rendered with extensive level-of-detail support. Daniel presented this talk on Quill at the recent SIGGRAPH conference in Vancouver.

A screening of the third and final portion of the Electronic Theatre presentation from the ACM SIGGRAPH 2011 Conference held in Vancouver, Canada will follow immediately after Daniel’s (approximately 20 minute) presentation.

Cost: Free for Siggraph members, for guests and non-members.

Probably best known for the annual SIGGRAPH International conference on computer graphics for film, televisions and new media industries, ACM SIGGRAPH also puts on a variety of programs year-round and worldwide to benefit the SIGGRAPH community. The event listed above is hosted by our local chapter and is free for all chapter members.
