Twinmotion 2020 est de sortie : quoi de neuf ?

Par Shadows

L’équipe Twinmotion (qui fait désormais partie du groupe Epic Games) dévoile la version 2020 de son logiciel. Pour rappel, Twinmotion est une solution de visualisation architecturale qui s’appuie sur Unreal Engine.

Cette nouvelle version met surtout l’accent sur la qualité du rendu, la végétation et l’ajout d’outils de pipeline, avec au menu : lumières volumétriques, illumination globale en screen-space, ciel et atmosphère physiques, profondeur de champ améliorée, area lights, matériau émissif amélioré, “Twinmotion presenter” (un outil de visualisation standalone destiné aux clients), visualisation de conduites et tuyaux, notes au format BCF, croissance de la végétation, outil de dispersion pour la végétation également, végétation plus détaillée et avec gestion des saisons, personnalisation du gazon, outil “peinture de végétation” amélioré, lien direct avec Rhino, matériaux vidéo, nouveaux personnages humains scannés et animés.

Layama : une solution entre panoramiques ennuyeux et VR coûteuse ?

Par Shadows

Motiva a dévoilé Layama, un produit qui entend proposer une solution à mi-chemin entre la réalité virtuelle et les vues 360° avec hotspots utilisées depuis des lustres.

L’éditeur part en fait d’un constat : la réalité virtuelle reste coûteuse et complexe à déployer, et les clients finaux ne sont pas forcément bien équipés. Pour de la visualisation architecturale, cette solution n’est donc pas toujours idéale.
Inversement, l’expérience reste plus agréable que les vues panoramiques à l’ancienne, très statiques.

Voici donc Layama : un outil qui transforme vos projets 3D en une page web qualifiée de “pseudo-VR”. Concrètement, l’outil s’appuie sur une astuce déjà utilisée par certains concurrents (multiplier des vues et créer des transitions douces entre l’affichage de chaque panoramique) mais en poussant davantage le concept. La scène de démo accessible dans un simple navigateur web le montre assez bien : chaque “saut” équivaut finalement à faire un pas dans la scène, et les transitions sont effectivement gérées de façon plus esthétique qu’un simple fondu. En revanche, on est évidemment loin d’un projet temps réel en termes d’immersion.

Layama est payant, compatible 3ds Max (V-Ray et Corona Render), Unreal Engine, Blender (Cycles/Eevee).

Rising Sun Pictures’ Female Artists Making Strides in an Industry Once Dominated by Men

Par Artisans PR

Adelaide, South Australia—Historically, the visual effects (VFX) industry has had a male-dominated workforce. Gender disparity runs across the board, but is especially evident in artist and supervisory roles, where women occupy a small fraction of positions, and have for decades. But, at long last, that is slowly changing. Even as female-led blockbusters like Captain Marvel, ...

L’émission Chasseurs d’appart’ a droit à une nouvelle saison sur M6 ; pour les personnes ne la connaissant pas, il s’agit en résumé d’une compétition entre agents immobiliers devant trouver l’appartement ou maison convenant le mieux aux critères de clients. Le tout est présenté par Stéphane Plaza, animateur et agent

L’éditeur de l’outil de visualisation 3D du même nom utilise ses talents et son produit pour créer illustrations et animations employées durant l’émission. L’enjeu : aider les clients potentiels à mieux se projeter, aux agents à augmenter leurs chances de gagner. Bien évidemment, il s’agit aussi pour l’émission de se renouveler en proposant une touche de nouveauté à même de séduire son public.

L’équipe Lumion France a mis en ligne quelques exemples de ces animations :

Mars et Venus, deux outils chinois en réalité virtuelle et 360 pour l’architecture

Par Shadows

Même si la barrière de la langue risque de freiner leur usage en France, nous vous invitons à découvrir Mars et Venus : un duo de logiciels édité par 光辉城市 (que l’on pourra traduire par cité radieuse).

Mars est une solution de collaboration en réalité virtuelle tourné vers l’architecture, avec divers outils de communication et création de rapports. Il est évidemment possible d’importer des données depuis des outils courants tels que Sketchup, Revit, 3ds Max, Rhino, Maya, ArchiCAD. L’outil permet aussi d’exporter des vues panoramiques ;
Venus, de son côté, prend justement en entrée les panoramas de Mars afin de proposer des vues 360° interactives avec hotspots, ajout de légendes, liens web, clips. Un système de code QR permet de partager les scènes.

Les pages de Mars et Venus proposent chacun des aperçus vidéo des produits ; les descriptions sont en chinois, mais un passage par Google traduction (vf de Mars, vf de Venus) pourra vous en donner une traduction approximative.

A noter enfin : la page de Mars précise que cet outil de collaboration est gratuit durant l’épidémie de Coronavirus.

Bogotrax

Par Marco Savo

Bogotà, 13-23 February 2020

Bogotrax 2020 is a matrix. It is the multiple matrix of a mycelium. A constantly expanding network. Its flowers emerge whenever an encounter (between hyphae) happens.

That is the experiment: to interweave a network of partnerships where organizers and public, actors and spectators jointly participate in the production of social space.

Bogotrax Festival has been taking place in Bogotá, Colombia, for 10 years. From 2003 onward, during the month of February. Ten days of parties and workshops; talks, conferences, performances, activities in different locations, street parades, activities in different local prisons, exhibitions, graffiti, “raves”. 

All this for free. Collectives and artists from different countries supported the festival with their participation. 

The festival was never meant to promote brands nor it was funded by any institutions. The festival rebellious self-managing spirit led it to program the end of its first life cycle. Bogotrax restarted itself with a relevant topic: “Only in case of emergency.”

In recent years we are witnessing a true technological revolution with a global impact in all areas of society, from the various forms of entertainment to education.

To be achieved through analysis, reflection and criticism in music and culture of recent decades.

Mois Multi

Par Marco Savo

Quebec, February 5-9 2020

Mois Multi 2020 is an archipelago of artists who express themselves madly, humanly, in a gigantic and dazzling spasm of life.

In a nutshell, the 2020 programs revolves around things that collapse. A subject of undoubted importance in the current times which affects us in the private and political life. The spark for this edition came, among other things, from the APA office, which approached us almost a year ago to talk about collapse. A joyful bonfire was born from this desire.

This is an edition generated by an unstoppable youth that also leaves space to a wise and proud guard. It’s young, casual, punk and contemporary. Festival curator, Emile Beauchemin aims to program a diversity of humans, approaches, subjects and ways to approach this world that we are constantly trying to understand and reconstruct.

Mois Multi is a project created by Recto Verso whose mission is to support and promote the research, creation and dissemination of multidisciplinary and electronic arts. 

In every edition, MM programs aim to bridge the gap between artworks and public, offering an unique and accessible experience of the art and the world.

Exploring the art of the VJ pioneer: Nam June Paik @Tate Modern

Par Marco Savo

 

 

We couldn’t miss this retrospective exhibition about the father of Video Art and one of the main references in the history of art for Audiovisual experimentation.

More than 200 artworks ranging from TV screens, to robots, video walls and immersive installations. A must-go event meticulously curated by the Tate to give insight into the work of this game-changing artist and researcher.

The first thing that strikes in Paik’s work is his playfulness. No matter what device he uses, the outcome is always lighthearted and pervaded by a witty sense of humor.

  • Nam June Paik @Tate Modern

His personal relationship with technology has always featured curiosity and optimism. In TV Garden he creates a surreal immersive environment where TV screens and plants aesthetically coexist harmoniously, although weirdly.

His attitude shows a deep connection with Buddhist philosophy. TV Buddha clearly states this. With Buddha watching the TV and watching himself at the same time, he helps us to realise that our body merges with the nature in the same way it merges with technology. One is all and all is one.

  • TV Garden – Nam June Paik
  • TV Buddha – Nam June Paik

Paik embraces chaos and technology all together in his Zen driven artistic experimentation. In his Robots, wires, pins, knobs, every component is well exposed in his fascinating ironic mess. Paik’s playful approach intends to humanize technology bringing it closer to the people, easier to grasp and easier to intervene.

  • Robots

Paik manipulates analog technology not only for aesthetic purposes but also as a political act. His anarchist artistic experimentation counteracts the consumerism driven by the mass manipulation through the TV.

Audiovisual City top picks of Paik’s expo are undoubtedly the two spectacularly immersive installations: Video Wall and Sistine Chapel.

Video Wall is a mesmerizing live collage of multiple video feeds. It strongly communicates the instability of perception and lack of focus in the mass media world.

Our eyes restlessly bounce within the video space from one feed to the other. Only after thorough observation we realize each image is linked up with its surrounding revealing the artistic and rhythmic pattern of the artwork. Only going through these steps we manage to embrace the multiple inputs as one video totem.

Video Wall

The Sistine Chapel is a stunningly sumptuous Audiovisual feast. It’s a large-scale installation made by 40 video projectors exhibited in plain sight in the centre of the room as if they were musical instruments.

This baroque multi-projection is a pioneering experiment of video mapping. As it’s really hard to focus on the single video feeds, the viewer is lead to appreciate the overall immersive AVscape created by this chaotically symphonic orchestra.

  • Sistine Chapel

Artistic expression and technological experimentation bound together and filled with Nam June Paik’s refined sense of humor. Art that speaks to everyone that has ears and eyes for it!
