We were invited to give a presentation on Chaos Group event CG2 Code For Art 2015. It was about a very interesting documentary project where the director and producers wanted to represent the most violent scenes in a more acceptable way. We developed a special shader in Houdini to emulate anime visual style. It had to look like manga animation. It was a hard task especially when we had to make natural phenomenon simulations like fire and smoke to look like they are hand drawn and not CG.
Here are some videos from the documentary “Love Is” as well as the presentation:
The presentation is in Bulgarian.
