This is the 43rd International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques.
The Art Gallery was probably one of my favorite parts of Siggraph. The hard work and effort into getting such quality and eye catching pieces were on display. One could not just simply walk by and not stop to really take a look. I took a couple photographs of the artwork, but honestly, you must be in the presence of it to really appreciate it!
This project was not working all of the times I went to see it. I was a bit disappointed because I did not get to experience it.
What's Your Sweet Spot - Loved this! I took a gum ball from the "Art" Tube. Its a close run, wonder which will win by the end of the event!
Orah by VideoStitch
The Orah by VideoStitch is one camera that eliminates the need for connecting multiple cameras on one rig. No more buying many GoPro cameras and buying a rig to attach them to start recording. And now, the Orah 4i, which was showcased at Siggraph, is 4k! The max output is 4k at 30 fps! It even streams that 4k live to the VR headsets. Make sure you preorder soon because the price is cut in half for a limited time! To learn more about the camera, visit here.
Blackmagic Design: DaVinci Resolve 12.5
If you already have DaVinci Resolve, make sure you update to DaVinci Resolve 12.5. There are over 1,000 enhancements and new features that will help with editing and coloring. Blackmagic design showcased the new update here at Siggraph as well as their 360 camera kits! To learn more about the new update, visit here.
The rig you see in the photo is by 360 Designs and they have various types of rigs where you can attach the Blackmagic cameras to get seamless 360 footage. I saw it with my own two eyes. The footage that you can record with these rigs put you right into the scene! I even looked through the what the camera was showing, and I saw my self standing there looking around. It was awesome!

Live 2D Cubism Editor
Change your 2D illustrations to 3D! One could import a Photoshop file and manipulate each layer and animate the subject!

Some of the companies that have used this process are: Square Enix Co, SEGA Games Co, NAMCO BANDAI Games and more. Not just for movies or apps, but also games and e-books. To learn more about the software, visit here.
There were many 3D printers that this event, and most of them had examples already laid out for everyone to see. This booth had some amazing and interesting pieces on display.
