Nick Ramsay and I will be doing a Live FACEWARE™ demo at GDC on Thursday (3/3) at 10:30am (Room 309, South Hall). Image Metrics' facial animation software will soon be released to the public and we'll be showing you what it does and how to use it.
There is also a technical artist meet-up brewing (looking like Wednesday evening). Seth Gibson is organizing. For more details check out this thread at TAO. (http://tech-artists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1303)
There are plenty of technical artist sessions at GDC this year, it should be great fun. If you'll be at the conference leave a comment below., maybe we can meet up and grab a beer!
