A different kind of event is coming

Realtime Conference

Details on The Realtime Conference

It’s pretty clear that real-time and game engine technologies have been changing a lot of things in VFX and animation lately, but they’re also big influencers in so many other areas.

So, a new conference called the Realtime Conference is looking to tap into the high interest in the area. It’s taking place on April 6th and 7th at not one, but two, venues – New York and Paris. You read that right, two locations, at the same time.

The speakers appearing at the event include the following: Epic Games’ Marc Petit, Adobe’s Sebastien Deguy, Framestore’s Tim Webber, GoogleVR’s Paul Debevec, The Third Floor’s Lara Cawsey, Facebook’s Christophe Hery, Lion King VFX supe Rob Legato, DMM’s Habib Zargarpour, Magnopus’ Ben Grossmann and several others in the real-time space. This includes in entertainment, but also automotive, architectural, VR, business and design.
