James Cameron Shares His Digital Secrets with the Masses
Tuesday, 07 August 2012 02:04

James Cameron wants to share his technology toolkit with the masses.

The director’s Lightstorm Entertainment and Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital said Tuesday the companies had officially teamed up with the tech software company Autodesk to develop virtual production software for the average consumer user. Currently available with certain products, the technology will also be used by Cameron as he preps to shoot the two sequels to his highly lucrative 2009 action adventure “Avatar.”

Lightstorm, Weta and Autodesk first began working together in 2005, when Cameron and long-time producer Jon Landau used Autodesk’s MotionBuilder program to streamline the virtual production process for “Avatar.”  After the end of production, the two men approached Autodesk about implementing many of their custom designs and technologies into the company’s general software to improve efficiency and usability. Improvements included enhanced real-time capabilities that helped directors preview human actor performances while mapped in a digital environment.

Landau says the partnership started to seriously take shape about 18 months ago with the release of Autodesk’s newest version of MotionBuilder, which shipped to stores in April.

“We’re storytellers,” he says. “By allowing others to use these tools, they will be better the next time we use it.”
