"Avatar" Director to share stories of overcoming technical and business challenges.
Winner of 11 Oscars, director James Cameron has been scheduled as a featured special guest at SolidWorks World 2010, taking place Jan. 31 through Feb. 3 in Anaheim, Calif.
The making of Cameron’s new 3D feature film “Avatar,” required more than two years of new production technology development. Innovations include image-based facial performance capture, a real-time virtual camera for computer-generated production, and the SIMULCAM system, all of which help weave computer-generated characters into live-action scenes.
Cameron’s appearance will be one of many highlights at SolidWorks World 2010. Attendees will present more than 150 in-depth training sessions and more than 100 SolidWorks-designed products will be on display in more than 6,000 square feet of space within the Partner Pavilion exhibition hall.
In addition, nearly the entire DS SolidWorks R&D staff will be on site and the general sessions will include a sneak preview of SolidWorks 2011 software and presentations from DS SolidWorks CEO Jeff Ray, Dassault Systèmes President and CEO Bernard Charlès, and DS SolidWorks Co-Founder and Group Executive Jon Hirschtick.
