Road to Realtime 1005: Layout
Guest Speaker: Ben Radcliffe, Unity Technologies
This Friday (21st May 2021), we have Ben Radcliffe of Unity Technologies joining us for the 5th session of our series focussing on real-time workflows for animated storytelling, where we’ll be turning out attention to Layout.
Layout artists are the cinematographers of virtual cinema, where they help tell stories through lens selection, angles, and camera movements. This session demonstrates how to animate physical cameras using the Timeline, then how to sequence, edit, and blend shots together to define the cut. You will learn about Unity’s procedural camera system, Cinemachine, and how to compose shots and move cameras using dolly tracks. Finally, you will see how you can use polybrush to perform last-minute set dressing to fill out the environment through the camera lens.

The session will be hosted in the UK but all are welcome 😉
