During the multi-city tour, experts from CG Soup, Pixologic and the Softimage Special Projects teams will be on-hand to demonstrate how using Softimage|XSI V.5.0, ZBrush 2 and Softimage|Face Robot software gives studios the ability to produce high-quality 3D art in a realistic timeframe.
CG Soup offers small and growing studios the services of experts with XSI knowledge. ZBrush is an integrated modeling, texturing and illustration environment. It is used in production as a modeling and designing tool for film, games and illustration.
The events are targeted at technical directors and experienced 3D artists. Seminars will highlight how these technologies are deployed and implemented for digital content creation in film, games and broadcast and post productions.
Structured in two separate modules, each event begins with a four-hour advanced TD seminar designed and presented by CG Soup on the use of XSI software, covering topics that include XSI best practices, advanced character rigging and simulation set-up. After a short break, an evening session will cover 3D for all levels of professionals, focusing on modeling in a ZBrush and XSI environment and facial animation design based on XSI and Softimage|Face Robot. Artists from leading post houses, such as Janimation and Passion Pictures, will demonstrate how they use ZBrush and XSI together in their pipelines.
Dell, Intel and Microsoft are sponsors for the event. High-performance Dell Precision workstations, featuring Intel Xeon processors and dual-core Intel Pentium processors, with Microsoft Windows XP Professional and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, will be used for the demonstrations.
The tour will start on December 1st in New York. Other cities on the tour include Vancouver, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Toronto and Montreal. For more information, or to register, check out: www.softimage.com/TDLove.
