Program Schedule: Wednesday, 20 November
Quote from Mike Seymour, SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Real-Time Live! Chair:
“One of the key aspects of Real-Time Live is the value of ‘being in the room’, as real-time graphics are not just rendered quickly, but interactively. It is this live interaction that makes the presentations so inventive and powerful, and it is also why there is such a great difference to witness the event live and in the room. Interactive Real-time graphics is a dramatically powerful and growing aspect of SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia”.
SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Real-Time Live! Program Highlights
Personalized Avatars for Realtime Virtual Try-on
Presenters: Koki Nagano, Hao Li, Lain Goldwhite, & Marco Fratarcangeli, Pinscreen, USA
Description: To solve the virtual fitting room problem, we propose a solution using personalized avatars with cutting edge clothing simulation. While real-time clothed avatars exist, they are limited to skinning techniques. Our approach produces a fully-rigged avatar using an input image, performance-driven motion and complex real-time clothing simulation on consumer hardware
Matt AI - Speech Driven Digital Human with Emotions
Presenters: Jingxiang Li, Shiyin Kang & Xinwei Jiang, Tenscent, China
Description: Photorealistic digital human usually has an exquisite face which leads to a huge challenge in speech driven facial animation, especially, with subtle human emotions. Based on deep learning method, we present a novel framework to drive digital human with emotions via speech in real-time.
A Clever Label
Presenters: Michela Ledwidge(s), Mod Productions, Australia
Description: A Clever Label (ACL) is an interactive immersive documentary experience with video and VR versions. Inside the ACL experience the audience is guided by the presenter to explore the story facts using real-time spatial data visualizations, which can be generated by non-technical presenters, as a new format for presenting information.
Global Bidirectional Remote Haptic Live Entertainment by Virtual Beings
Presenters: AKIHIKO SHIRAI, Yusuke Yamazaki, Kensuke Koike, & Yoshitaka SOEJIMA, GREE VR Studio Lab, Japan
Description: We show a next generation live entertainment using global bidirectional remote network and haptic displays for VTubers. Performers will play 3D real-time characters. The remote players harmonize the stage by applauding and cheering on the performer on-site. Emotion will be visualized for various audiences which includes audio and/or visual disabilities.
Virtual Reality Protein Builder
Presenters: Jean-Marc Gauthier, Jagdish Suresh Patel, Ian McGrath, University of Idaho, USA
Description: A virtual world is an ideal place to explore and visualize physical, biochemical and molecular protein structures. Virtual protein structures can be shared between several people using virtual reality or mixed reality. One of the great appeals of visualizing virtu
The AirSticks: An Instrument for Audio-Visual Performance Through Gesture in Augmented Reality
Presenters: Alon Ilsar, Matthew Hughes, University of Technology Sydney & Technische Universität Berlin
Description: The AirSticks are a gesture-based audio-visual instrument. This latest incarnation combines spatially controlled sound design with a 3D game environment projected onto a transparent screen. This system allows for the composition of highly integrated audio-visual environments superimposed directly onto the performance area
