Presenting ‘Brain to Tornadoes’
Sometimes during development of visual effects based experiences you find unusual cross over. Recently I found myself in the odd situation of discovering that code we were using to look at mouse brain was actually useful to create a nice tornado effect. With permission of the Max Plank Institute and my advisor Moritz Helmstaeder, and with programmatic help from Dmitry Orlov we were able to transform a volumetric shader designed for science games (brainflight.org) to one for entertainment. In this talk I will take apart the graphical elements that made our storm scene for ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ Chrome Experiment done for Google and Disney and leave you with a brain challenge.
