Foundry at SIGGRAPH 2022
Foundry is heading to SIGGRAPH 2022! Join us to learn about Foundry's latest product updates and innovations, reconnect with the community and participate in a variety of industry activities.
'Comandante': Braving the Waves With Near Real-Time Virtual Production Workflows
Near real-time allows post-production to start during shooting, giving filmmakers more confidence and enabling them to push the limitations of virtual production. Learn how key production players of the film Comandante used the technique while working on a water stage within a waterproof but low-res LED volume.
Unleashing the Power of the Artist with Machine Learning
Take a look at how Foundry is investigating cutting-edge machine learning technology to put into the hands of the VFX community and how it inspired the development of the CopyCat node in Nuke, giving artists full control over the types of effects they can generate. This session will be presented by Foundry’s Research Engineer, Mairéad Grogan.
Open Source Days: OpenAssetIO's Journey into the Academy Software Foundation's Lifecycle
As media creation pipelines evolve to become more distributed, our tools require new ways of talking about data beyond simple files on disk. OpenAssetIO is a new open source project that gives tools a common asset-centric interface for resolving, discovering, and registering production data. Learn about OpenAssetIO's roots, what guided the project's evolution, and how we found alignment with the ASWF to bring it into the Project Lifecycle process.

Foundry’s Education Summit will be a lunch and learn for our educational partners. Join the Summit to hear from Foundry’s Research Team about the advancements in virtual production and machine learning. Plus, a studio partner will share their production pipeline and how students can best be prepared to enter the industry.
Demo: Near Real-Time Workflows for Virtual Production
We will be running a special demo on the AWS booth 1039 based on our recent project 'Comandante: Near Real-Time Workflows for Virtual Production' presenting our near real-time (NRT) workflow to immediately improve the quality of a In-Camera VFX (ICVFX) shots, bridging on-set and post-production, allowing VFX to start on-set as soon as the director says "cut".
Join the Modo Livestream from Vancouver! During the session, we will be joined by the founders of CG Masters School of 3D Animation and VFX, discuss the interesting things that we are seeing at SIGGRAPH, and announce some new community initiatives. We will also have a Modo demo from Kimmo Helstrom who has rapidly established himself as a master of procedural workflows in Modo.
Professional mentorship has a significant impact on student artists. A pilot program was started at a historically low-income and diverse community college wherein professional mentorship was embedded as a course requirement. Partnered with ACCESS VFX and Foundry, this is a talk about the mentorship program at Santa Monica College. This session will be available on-demand starting on August 8.
Amplifying Inclusion in Open Source: Intentional Actions Everyone Can Take
Hosted by the Academy Software Foundation Diversity and Inclusion Working Group, this panel will feature technologists who will share both the opportunities and proven best practices to build an inclusive, empowering and supportive open source community. This session will be available on-demand starting on August 8.
