TurboSquid at Siggraph – Day 1

Michele Bousquet Site

Los Angeles Convention Center

This week is the annual SIGGRAPH conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Tens of thousands attendees will convene over the next few days for classes on CG techniques, hands-on demonstrations of new technology, meetings, discussions, and gatherings of all kinds. SIGGRAPH also includes a nonstop animation festival and a feast-for-the-eyes exhibition of new CG technology. For CG aficionados in North America (and around the world), SIGGRAPH is like Disney World—there’s not enough time to do and see everything, but whatever you do manage to fit in is always inspiring, intriguing, and just plain fun.

While at SIGGRAPH it’s always a delight to visit the exhibition portion of the conference. Today, Jonathan Lloyd and I traversed the show floor looking to find out about new and exciting developments in the 3D industry. The chance to reconnect with colleagues is an added bonus, not to mention the visual feast that awaits all attendees.

We visited several booths including Autodesk, Digital Domain, NVIDIA, and 3D World. Read More

Jonathan Lloyd and I just finished giving a talk on 3D Modeling Standards as part of the official presentation program at Siggraph 2011 in Vancouver, Canada. Attendees got a whirlwind tour through TurboSquid’s two-year adventure in developing, testing, refining, and finally releasing 3D modeling standards as part of CheckMate Certification.
