|Full Conference||Computer Animation Festival|
For the first time, the Computer Animation Festival features a section focused entirely on real-time computer graphics. In recent years, the graphics capabilities and production values of videogames on consoles and computers have grown dramatically. This section of the festival shows the latest examples of videogames and real-time simulations that push the boundaries of what users and viewers have come to expect.
To help emphasize the difference between these works and the pre-rendered works in the Screenings, real-time pieces are demonstrated on their actual platforms. In addition, a selection of the games will be available for attendees to try out in the SIGGRAPH 2009 Sandbox.
