2 Dec, 2007

Users of the company's 3D computer graphic software are invited to share work, learn, and network with colleagues.

Autodesk announced last week that the company will hold its 3December events to celebrate 3D artists and their creations. For the ninth consecutive year, these events are designed to provide Autodesk 3D software users with the opportunity to share their work, learn, and network.

"Members of the 3D community around the world are continuously breaking down barriers and raising the bar with amazing computer-generated work in film, television, games, and all forms of visual communication," said Marc Petit, senior vice-president, Autodesk Media & Entertainment. "Every year, we hold 3December to honor these artists and celebrate the amazing art they create with our solutions."

Autodesk will host several live events:

  • Atlanta, December 3: Bill Harper of The Dreamhive will showcase work created in Mudbox, and Turner Studios will demonstrate recently completed broadcast graphics, as well as work created by local artists.

  • Toronto, December 4: This event will feature presentations by Autodesk principal scientist Duncan Brinsmead, and Dave Cardwell, cocreator of Mudbox.

  • Los Angeles, December 6: Sony Pictures Imageworks will present its work on the recently released stereoscopic film Beowulf.

In addition, Autodesk Animation User Group Association chapters will hold 3December chapter meetings in numerous cities, including London, Dallas, and Minneapolis. Registration is required for Autodesk 3December events.
