Legend3D and SGO co-develop 2D to 3D conversion innovation
ShootOnline.com reports that following a successful and ongoing co-development partnership with Hollywood stereo VFX company Legend3D, SGO announced that Mistika is now fully integrated within Legend’s “2D to 3D” conversion process and digital asset management system.
This co-development resulted in a new “Depth Grade” node in Mistika, which accepts and utilizes data created by Legend3D’s conversion process to interactively design the depth of a given scene in real-time. As the conversion data is passed through the Mistika, each 3D scene can be flawlessly fine-tuned, using Mistika’s already proven and highly-advanced stereo optimization features in conjunction with the “Depth Grade” node, eliminating unnecessary artist iterations. From designing a director’s 3D story at the beginning of a feature, to approving large volumes of shots that require an accelerated conversion time frame towards the end, the “Depth Grade” node will redefine the creative and schedule implications for 3D VFX and conversion work.
