    It's kinda crazy that we are starting to move from engineering to artistry, almost fully. Like in the 90s, you basically had to have an engineering degree to do CGI. But nowadays, you just learn Blender by watching few tutorial series.

      @Rob Ellis That's so cool for your daughter. There is a group called "girls who code" you may want to get her involved in at some point. They have clubs and other programs for girls starting at 3rd grade. Also, I've seen non-coders use AI models like Chat-GPT to walk them through creating something from start to finish - it's pretty astonishing actually.

      Industrial Light & Magic, Silicon Graphics Inc, and more companies of the 1980's and 1990's would disagree. This guy stood on the shoulders of giants before becoming a giant himself. If he hadn't invented it, one or more other people would have because at the time CG artists knew the limitations of CGI and new software and techniques were being invented to overcome those limits.

    • Santiago Méndez

      I mean, no, you are making it sound like he invented the VFX industry. It's crazy how people can go from being blissfully unaware of someone's contributions, to blowing said contributions out of proportion. If you want to regard something properly, make the due diligence and take the time to learn the history of VFX.

      Why did you feel the urge to somehow spread misinformation and lies about this man and his accomplishments? Why can't you just be happy for him and be grateful for his contributions to the industry? Why do you have to deliberately lie (thus hurt his image)?

    Honestly hearing him say "omg that's the couch" and doting in what corridor do for teaching and breaking down shiz it's so cool, from a small team to a big indie powerhouse sharing content and having these experiences with big people behind the scenes of all areas in movies it's so cool. I wonder how jazzed he was to sit and talk.

      @Luis Sierra don't think that's a shader though, that's just coding up some geometry for the ray tracer to use. Honestly was probably one of the easier parts compared to the whole research paper 😅

    • Moritz R

      ​@xxbondsxxbut that's the thing though. The guy operates on such a high level, what he views as trivial just isn't to most. It helps put the level of understanding and expertise into context, because now there's a frame of reference. Creating software that's capable of something that just wasn't possible before is just another Tuesday. Absolutely crazy

    This is a really unique direction to take the series, and I'm glad we're looking more and more at the artists and programmers behind these techniques to see just how much blood and sweat goes into thes things.
    If you're talking about tech stuff, Animal Logic has been pretty historic about going overboard with their coding to get some really complicated results for their films, some of which I can't find any record of seeing anywhere else. Fur, feathers, scales, muscle sims, there's a lot to look at there.

    I always knew this but this episode really highlights how smart and how much of an craftsman Niko is. The way he is able to converse expertly in both artistic/directorial side of film making as well as the super technical things like in this video is so inspiring.

    • Longtoothsaber
      Longtoothsaber Hace 2 meses +9

      I agree, although there was one moment when the guest cringed a little when Niko called a method of his "brute forcing", because it really doesn't apply there.

    • lydonjr
      lydonjr Hace 2 meses +16

      ⁠​⁠​⁠@LongtoothsaberI think's just a lingo thing cus Niko's more of a swe creating art versus a phd research engineer showcasing math via art. Niko may think coding/developing new solutions instead of just implementing an industry solution could come off as brute force / lengthy task / difficult - where it could be second nature for the guest cus his approach for producing art came from a 90's programming and math research background
      if that makes any sense lol

    • Eric Hamm
      Eric Hamm Hace 2 meses +3

      @lydonjr No it doesn't. Niko is a great guy, but he is definitely not on the level of a DP or a good director. He is more a of hype man. If you look objectively at Corridors work, has anything caught on as a industry standard? The answer is no. Often they try to reinvent the wheel when the wheel already exist because of innovators before them.

    This shows how insanely math-based all of rendering is…which also explains how people have done renderings on stuff like Demos

    Had Paul Debevec through my work today. Absolute gentleman. Gave us lots of good technical feedback. Listening to him explain equations for light refractions was really illuminating pun intended. Thanks for this vid. Made a great once over to get my team familiar with Paul's work before he visited!

      Creativity is directly connected to intelligence, the core of intelligence (not smartness which is book learning, innate biological intelligence) being the ability to make mental connections, which is exactly what creativity is as well. This guy is a straight up genius of course, basically inventing modern CGI as a student.

    I would love to see an episode of VFX Artist React with both the 'old guard' and the new sat on the sofa talking about the differences and changes in the industry! A tie in to the 'recreating old VFX' series that I need in my life!

      Nobel Prizes are given by a private organization in a few specific categories: Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Economics and Peace. There's no prize for mathematics, computer science, history, engineering, visual effects, or a bunch of other things.

    I think it might be cool to hear from the people that make and use miniatures. Buildings, flood scenes and explosions in miniature all come to mind...
    This was a dope episode! I like the highly technical ones since everything gets explained so well, I feel like I'm actually learning stuff!

    Love this! Seeing the guy that essentially invented modern rendering techniques was a treat! I'd like to see a deep dive into the tech that was invented during the making of the Super Mario Brothers movie from 1993.
