Foundry Webinar: Lighting & LookDev Automation in Katana - Preparing for Success

About this webinar

Join experienced Lighting Artist Abel Vargas as he discusses the power of Katana deployed in look development. Abel will cover how Katana's power can facilitate massively scaled look development across multiple assets, and demonstrate how he uses Katana 3.6's recent updates to its shading system. Also, he will show how to manage shot work by easily recreating and duplicating assets.

Where usually Katana is used by artists in an integrated pipeline, Abel will instead discuss how he uses Katana itself to achieve his results. This is a valuable opportunity for any artist aspiring to work on high-end projects, or for those who already know Katana to compare techniques.

The webinar will end with a live Q&A session where the audience can ask Abel for additional insight.
