This is the contracted version of the submission for DigiPro 2013 (olm.co.jp/digipro2013).
In this talk, we presented our experiences in building an efficient, practical fur pipeline for generating 900+ shots containing two digital gorillas for the production of the Korean movie “Mr. Go”, a mid cost VFX ﬁlm totaling about $10M for the entire VFX budget.
We developed our own fur pipeline, Zelos, for this movie.
Zelos is the in-house system of Dexter Digital, which currently includes fur, hair, fluid, and deformers.
