Pro Dev sessions were popular
More than 150 attendees enthusiastically participated in IMERSA's series of professional development workshops and industry conference at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science Feb 14-17. True to the “Immersive Storytelling” theme, fulldome content development was a primary focus throughout. Pro Dev sessions explored tools and techniques, such as live-action capture rigs, compositing software and photogrammetry. Hands-on workshops addressing workflow and 360 cameras and gear such as Hero 360, RED, Epic and the Canon fisheye tests made it clear that 4K acquisition for fulldome is now viable.
