The NAD Centre, in collaboration with Autodesk, will be holding a 3D Content Creation workshop on November 8 at the Hilton Bonaventure Hotel in the context of the Montreal International Game Summit. This workshop will provide 20 participants, from different 3D animation schools, with an opportunity to register to one of two contests that will take place simultaneously between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The first contest entitled “3D Creation of a Game Environment” is open to 12 students whom will be divided into 3 teams of 4 artists, for example: 2 modelers, a lighting technician and a texture artist.

Within 6 hours, each team will have to design and produce a 3D environment according to the instructions and character provided at the start of the contest. The final result will be evaluated based on the art concept and the final rendering.The second contest entails creating a 3D in-game prop. Within 6 hours, 8 students will work individually to design, model and texture a prop. The final result will be viewed and judged using a viewer, which will be revealed the day of the contest.

This contest will enable students to showcase their technical and artistic 3D knowledge using the following software: 3DS Max, Softimage or Maya as well as Photoshop and Wacom tablet.

In order to evaluate the quality of the work, Autodesk has selected 5-industry professionals to make up the jury. Among the jury members are: Stéphane Desmeules (Ubisoft), Mathieu Mazerolle (Autodesk), Louis Marcoux (Autodesk) and Carl Callewaert (Measurand/GAIF).

Good luck to all of you!
