Siggraph was great this year. Myself, if you caught me, I was in both Intel and HP booths showing Production Premium and some cool After Effects demos I created for HP’s new 30 bit monitor. I also had a great surprise visit by Paul Graff from Crazy Horse Effects (formerly of Digital Backlot).
The film and effects crowd (and Paul Graff) was loving this new HP Monitor, 30 bit RGB LED technology, check it out on HP’s website.
The show was busy, size wise down a bit from last year but busy crowd and seemed more focused on film/fx crowd than students like it has been in the past.
Tons of motion capture booths, Pixar, Sony Imageworks and the like were there as usual showing all the latest.Maxon had a great booth and announced a new version of Cinema 4D…looked good, make sure you check it out on their website.
