Computer Vision for Visual Effects Webinar

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 5:30 PM until 6:30 PMEastern Standard Time

Learn about the computer vision advances that go into making Hollywood visual e­ffects!  How can we remove objects from an image and replace them with realistic backgrounds?  How can we insert CGI objects into video from a handheld camera?  How are real actors’ performances captured and mapped onto digital characters?  We will talk about lots of examples from recent movies and TV that make use of computer vision research (which you can learn about in ECSE classes) “under the hood”.
