This novel workflow, led by RTE and EBU, and Co-Championed by RAI, VRT, YLE and ETC, will be accomplished through remote collaboration using a Cloud Based Software Bridge and off-the-shelf hardware. It will also test the feasibility of using vocal performance and body posture to drive 3D avatars from remotely connected locations, all the while using minimal equipment.
Characters will be integrated into their environments by staging and shooting the content in a real-time render engine (Unreal) using collaborative virtual production techniques and software.
The goal of this unique POC will be to create the most effective, low cost “Script to 3D Character Pipeline” imaginable. That’s why they call it: Smart Remote Production for Real Time Animation.
