square Full Conference Access        triangleComputer Animation Festival Pass

Monday, 11 August 8:30 am - 7:45 pm
Tuesday, 12 August 8:30 am - 5:30 pm

Though we live in a multidimensional world, our media limit us to fewer dimensions, reducing our connection to all that is possible. Modern 3D technology permeates everything from product design to entertainment, from games to animation, from the living room to outer space. In these talks, experts teach the foundations of 3D, from acquisition to projection, from history to the future. Discover how 3D is contributing to medicine and science, and dive into the increasingly immersive worlds of gaming and interactivity. Learn about the latest animated and live-action productions, hear experts speculate about the future, and watch 3D shorts and clips from 3D features - treasures from the past, and previews of tomorrow's achievements.
