Trixter and Animationsinstitut of Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg are collaborating to explore next generation real-time workflows for look development. The presented prototype utilizes the industry standard tool for lighting and look development in Animation and VFX productions: Katana by Foundry. The Filmakademie Virtual Production Editing Tools (VPET) are utilized to stream a lightweight version to a mobile client for collaborative interaction. Changes to lighting and setup of the scene are synchronized to the Katana scene and rendered in real-time using Redshift. Trixter contributed a real production asset from one of their recent movie Jim Button.
Trixter: Thomas Knop, Andreas Schuster
