November 30, 2012 | Singapore

Speaker: Paul Debevec
Host: SIGGRAPH Asia 2012

Abstract: The Light Stage systems built at UC Berkeley and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies have enabled a variety of facial scanning, reflectance measurement, and performance capture techniques reported in several research papers and used in the motion picture, simulation, and video game industries. We present the the evolutionary history of the Light Stage systems with a focus on the roles they have played in creating some of the world’s first photoreal digital actors.
