The program of the conference included reports and speeches on the most topical issues. Not all of them were devoted to technological aspects of 3D modeling, animation and visual effects and other CG production but intended to cover both technical and creative aspects of the process.
The following aspects were included in the program of the conference: round table discussions on the topical issues, presentations of Russian and foreign artists, section for developers, demonstration and discussion of works, exhibition digests reports of the studios about their technologies, master-classes of world recognized artists and more.
A distinctive mark of the 11th conference was its very rich program: during 2 days of the conference more than 100 of 3D related topics were explored by both Russian and foreign specialists.
- One of the key events of the conference was the two-hour exclusive performance by Framestore Studio (London) on the production of special effects for the "Gravity" film – more than 800 people gathered in the hall to listen to the contribution.

We, at 3D-Ace believe that attendance of CG EVENT 2013 will help to increase the level of technical expertise of our 3D artists. We learned new techniques and methods of visual effects production, modeling and sculpturing, 3D and 2D animation and more.
Since 2009, we've developed numerous projects in 2D and 3D, including models and props for Unity and Unreal Engine as well as AR/VR/MR-ready 3D models. Contact us!
