Revolutionize Your Creative Process
In the preproduction process of making films, cineDESK is a new tool for facilitating scene blocking and staging for previsualization. Directors, cinematographers and production designers can collaboratively explore how space, light, props and acting will be translated into cinematic sequences.
The positions and movements of the virtual actors and virtual camera(s) in the 3D space are rendered in real time into 2D images with the help of the Unreal Engine.
The great advantage of working with cineDESK is its collaborative potential. The director, the DoP, the production designer and further crew members can work together to find the optimum visualization.
The current version of cineDESK, based on Unreal engine and a touch-screen interface, has been developed by Norbert Kottmann and Valentin Huber in 2021/22. The copyright owner is the Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK.
