Automating FX on Avengers: Endgame
Business and Production Premium session
Date : Tuesday, June 4th - 15.00 - 16.00 > Room 1
To help realize the VFX work on Avengers: Endgame at Digital Domain a lot of preparation was put into the automation of FX workflows. This helped to make iterating similar effects across similar shots and sequences as easy as possible to free up more artist time for creative rather than technical or otherwise repetitive work. Being able to quickly iterate helps block out work in a sequence easily as well as gives insights into which shots require more custom work than originally intended. It also makes assigning different artist to run types of work much easier as well as tasks that are very well designed to be run on all shots without much cost / time in FX to execute. In this talk, we will go through examples of the types of work we utilized this automation.
