Sofia, Bulgaria – July 8, 2013 –

Mark your calendar. At SIGGRAPH 2013,

Chaos Group

and some of the VFX industry’s top artists are joining forces. Together they will host two events packed tight with production run-downs of commercial spots, television shows, game cinematics, and blockbuster films including “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Oblivion," and "Iron Man 3." SIGGRAPH visitors will also see a sneak preview of Chaos Group’s next major release: V-Ray 3.0.

“V-Ray Day at SIGGRAPH”

will be held at the SIGGRAPH expo center (room 203A) on Wednesday, July 24. Its exclusive presentations will feature supervisors from ILM, Digital Domain, Method Studios, Scanline VFX, Pixomondo and Zoic Studios and will show off the ways V-Ray continues to support VFX artists.

At the Chaos Group/Trinity3D booth

at the Expo floor, Chaos Group will be previewing V-Ray 3.0 and holding master classes in Phoenix FD and V-Ray for Maya (

Participation in two

Birds of a Feather sessions (BoF)

will give Chaos Group’s development team a chance to unearth some of V-Ray’s 3.0 key technical aspects. In the first session, V-Ray creator Vlado Koylazov will share details about deep compositing support in V-Ray 3.0 (22 July 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., room 213B); while Chaos Group developer Ivan Mavrov will demo Open Shading Language support at an OSL BoF session (22 July 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., Hilton Anaheim - Malibu).

“V-Ray User Event – Los Angeles”

is a post-SIGGRAPH event that will be hosted at The Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Starting at 6 p.m. on July 26, artists from Pixomondo will demonstrate how V-Ray was used on “Oblivion” and “Star Trek Into Darkness,” while Blur will highlight the game cinematics of “Batman: Arkham Origins" and “The Elder Scrolls Online.” This event is open to the public (see the
