We taught a class on "Multithreading and VFX" on July 24 at SIGGRAPH 2013.
All course notes are now online at http://www.multithreadingandvfx.org/course_notes/ - useful even if you were not there!
Wonderful group of presenters to work with (in order of presentation in our class):
- James Reinders, Intel
- George ElKoura, Pixar Animation Studios
- Martin Watt, Dreamworks Animation
- Erwin Coumans, AMD
- Ron Henderson, Dreamworks Animation
- Jeff Lait, Side Effects Software
The web site http://www.multithreadingandvfx.org is worth a look!
