Siggraph 2008 banner

I can’t wait to finally see what’s been cooking in the industry for the past year. I was lucky enough to attend the last year’s Siggraph and see it for myself, but, unfortunately, I’m unable, due to work, to attend this year’s exhibition in LA, which is a real pitty as I’d love to see LA and the biggest CG event that gets even bigger in LA.

What I’m most interested in, obviously, are the progresses of Autodesk and Softimage, but I’m also interested in MoCap evolution as well as various other areas: rigid/soft body simulation, rendering technology, data interoperability etc…

Hopefully Max 2009 SP2? Or perhaps Max 2009.5 (as I don’t believe Autodesk would release software from a way too distant future, like Max 2010 :D ) will bring some sweet new features or at least a long-time wishes (i.e. bug fixes) to the table. Especially since ICE is making so much noise these days. Which is always good. I’ve heard some rumours about a complete core-rewrite of Maya, but who knows, this has been said about Max for years as well. We’ll see in a few days time what these software giants have to offer.

For the time being, if you’re interested, here are
some photos I took last year at Siggraph 2007 in San Diego.
