Real-Time Shading in Wave3D
Exhibitor Tech Talk Stage

Presented in Korean / 한국어로 발표 됨

Shading indicates a shadow effect on the target that will be rendered for normal CG. Real-time rendering has a different meaning. Response is very important in real-time rendering. It processes commands through hardware to calculate GPU graphics. In the "shader module", a programmable module processes the vertex and the pixel, and the CPU becomes less flexible and provides less time for calculation. Solving these problems requires an algorithm that focuses on visual effects rather than accuracy in a standardized data structure.

Design for Speed
Auditorium

Presented in English, translated simultaneously to Korean / 영어로 발표 됨 (한국어 동시 통역)

Inside the studios of one of the world's most technologically advanced automotive and racing companies, a lump of clay, an organic expression of a next-generation car, sits near a supercomputer that visualizes the car in a virtual environment that is almost impossible to distinguish from real life. The studio walls are covered with images and examples of natural objects and technological tours de force; animals, jet fighters, exotic new materials, and even the world’s fastest sailfish splashed in chrome with McLaren’s rocket red accents. The studio's designers are constantly debating and exploring new technologies, new materials, and new concepts.

Technology has changed the way designers work. Traditional design phases, from hand-drawn sketches to clay modeling, are now realized through digital tablets and digital three-dimensional modeling. Designers must combine the best traditional and new approaches to define the optimal balance between digital and analog solutions.

Automobiles have always been a reflection of technology draped in art, and "super cars" are the ultimate expression of automotive art and technology. Designers who create the next generation of super cars must have the right tools to articulate their vision. At the same time, they must always ask: What’s next?

With its roots in Formula One racing, the design studio at McLaren is where "what’s next" is already here. In his featured speech, McLaren Design Director Frank Stephenson explains how his world-class design team looks beyond what's next to challenge the future.

My New Philosophy of Caricature
Auditorium

Presented in Korean, translated simultaneously to English / 한국어로 발표 됨 (영어 동시 통역)

Originally a high school art teacher, Jae-Dong Park started his career as a comics artist at the newly founded Hangyeore Sinmun daily newspaper in 1988. From the first issue, Park created humorous illustrations and comics for the illustrations section. His caricatures played a significant part in the movement for democracy in Korea. He attacked the men in power through exaggeration and travesty. After Korea completed its democratization process, he drew for Hangyeore Sinmun until 1996, when he turned to animation with the film "Odoltoki". In 2009, the 10th Korean National Assembly honored him with the Caricaturist of the Year award. His honors also include directing two animations and publishing three books of essays. He is interested in art and technology, and the movement among Korean artists and engineers to bring art and technology together. He is particularly interested in CG technology that can create caricatures from photographs with high-level guidance.

In his featured talk, Jae-Dong Park discusses how computer graphics have changed the way of drawing caricatures and cartoons over the last decade. He speaks about his vision of how non-photorealistic rendering, an active research subject in CG, can enrich human life, shares his passion for art, and explains his own approach to drawing caricatures that exaggerate without offending the subjects of his drawings.

Computer Graphics in the Study of Master Paintings and Drawings: Three-Dimensional Virtual Worlds Behind the Two-Dimensional Masterpieces
Auditorium

Presented in English, translated simultaneously to Korean / 영어로 발표 됨 (한국어 동시 통역)

Computer graphics models of artists' studios allow scholars to address a number of vexing problems in the history and interpretation of art, particularly those related to old masters' working methods. Recent studies have used this modeling technique to analyze how some of the world's most famous paintings were created:

• A model of Jan van Eyck's Portrait of Arnolfini and his wife exposed perspective inaccuracies that are difficult to discern by the unaided eye. The model also confirmed that the focal length of the convex mirror in the painting was much shorter than a putative projection mirror for this work. Both results led to rejection of the claim that this work was executed by tracing optical projections.

• The lighting direction estimated in a model of Jan Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring agreed closely with directions estimated by five other sources within the painting, objectively revealing this artist's mastery in rendering the effects of light and supporting the claim that this work was executed with a live model, not from the artist's imagination.

• A model of Georges de la Tour's Christ in the Carpenter's Studio confirmed that the light in the tableau was at the candle, rather than "in place of the other figure", and this, in turn, led to a rejection of the claim that this painting was executed using optical projections.

• A model of Parmigianino's Self Portrait in a Convex Mirror revealed that the warped image is consistent with the artist faithfully recording the image of a rectilinear room distorted by the mirror, rather than inventing a fictive space. The model also reveals that the work may be hung too high in its gallery home.

This talk, profusely illustrated with art works and movies of computer graphics models of artists' studios, explains the steps by which computer experts and art scholars build such computer graphics models, the types of assumptions that are brought to bear, and the strengths and limitations of the overall methodology. The talk concludes with a number of unsolved problems in the history of art that seem amenable to these computer graphics methods.

Bulldozer Trash From "Toy Story 3"
Auditorium

Presented in Korean, translated simultaneously to English / 한국어로 발표 됨 (영어 동시 통역)

This introduction to trash simulation pipelines for Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story 3" focuses on interactions between bulldozers and trash piles. The simulation pipeline used Pixar's in-house rigid-body tool, Ned, to create a sim model and several custom simulation-rig forces, collision events, procedural motions, etc. A second pipeline generated interactive smoke and dust. Texture-driven particles were used to convert collision data to textures, and Atmos, Pixar's system for creating volumetric effects based on ray-marching in RenderMan provided rendering volume information.
