Virtual Line Studios builds a new VR/AR studio powered by Zero Density’s Reality
Virtual Line Studios, a film studio in Tokyo, Japan, recently built an entire new studio for real-time VR/AR capability powered by Reality, a solution by Zero Density. According to the company, this installation “will change the way of film and commercial production dramatically, both in Japan and globally”. Reality installation was carried out by ZD regional partner Ask Co.
Reality uses Unreal Engine by Epic Games, a real-time game engine, as the 3D renderer. With the advanced real-time visual effects capabilities, Reality delivers photo-realistic environments. Also, as a unique approach in the market, in Reality, green screen image is composited with graphics in 3D scene. This technique results in real-time realistic reflections and refractions of the physical objects and the people inside the green screen on top of the graphics.
Virtual Line Studios is currently using a Blackmagic Design URSAmini Pro 4.6K G2 camera, calibrated for xR compatible studio; a Fujinon ZK19-90mm lens; and tracking by stype. Furthermore, as base lights, the studio uses ARRI SkyPanel S60c S360c and ETC ColorSource 40AV.
