Event Overview

In July 2011, three prominent animators working in different companies in the game industry demonstrated their process of creating animation using DCC (Digital Contents Creation) tools from Autodesk. Their creation process has been recorded and now available on CEDEC Channel on Nico Nico Douga. During the event period of CEDEC 2011, a lecture on the making of the animation works will be given in the form of a panel discussion between a facilitator and the three artists. The panel discussion will explain the production process of the animation works, using a digest version of the video footage. The artists will introduce to the audience the notable features of the technologies used, and tips on better artistic impression.
