In this \"state of the union\" session, two VFX veterans share their perspectives on where the industry is at, where it\'s heading, and why it\'s critically important to foster a culture of knowledge sharing and collaboration within the community. Keith Guerrette will discuss incredible innovations that are only possible when artists share knowledge freely, exploring cutting edge concepts like temperate masks, density light wrap, LUTS, raymarching , motion vectors and others. Drew Skillman will share the story behind the development of Tilt Brush, a VR Painting application , and describe how traditional VFX techniques like flip books, post processing, stateless particles, and shader trickery found fertile ground in the world beyond games.
