Talk at SIGGRAPH Asia 2018

We are proud to announce that we will be at the computer graphics conference SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 this December, where we will present the techniques used to create our 64K intro, H – Immersion.

At the conference, the “Computer Animation Festival” celebrates storytelling and animation in general, and showcases some of the best works of the year. We are honoured to have been selected among the talks there, and still in disbelief to be sitting next to talks about Pixar’s Incredibles 2 or Solo: A Star Wars Story.

If you are attending SIGGRAPH Asia this December in Tokyo, come to our session on Thursday 6th of December, from 16:15 to 18:00, in room G502 (glass building, fifth floor). All the details are available on the SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 session description. There is an iCalendar file as well.

Texturing in a 64kB intro

This article is the second part of our series on the making of H – Immersion. You can read the first part here: A dive into the making of Immersion.

When making an animation within only 64kB, using images is tricky. We can’t store them in a traditional way, because it is not efficient enough, even with a compression like JPEG. An alternative solution is procedural generation. It consists in using code to describe how to create the images at runtime. Our implementation of such a solution is the texture generator, a core part of our toolchain. In this post we will present how we designed it and how we used it in H – Immersion.
