Cities or digital film sets are beautiful and an essential part of movie blockbusters like “Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, “Independence Day: Resurgence”, “Big Hero 6”, “Zoomania”, etc.
But even small cities comprise of several thousand buildings, streets, street furniture, bridges, trees, etc. and can easily lead in a very time consuming and tedious production task. Learn in this presentation on how the software CityEngine can be successfully integrated into pre- and post-production pipeline with Alembic or the CityEngine SDK for the efficient design and streamlined modelling of 3D city backgrounds and digital sets. In addition, we will look at some of the new features of upcoming CityEngine 2017.1, which improves artistic control and artist friendliness.
