Chaos Group Lines Up Star Trek, Games and Animated TV for FMX 2018

Pixomondo, Cube Creative and RealtimeUK Among V-Ray Day Speakers; New Mars Design Contest with HP

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – March 19, 2018 – Today, Chaos Group announced its V-Ray Day line-up for FMX 2018, its annual presentation series that brings exclusive production talks to show attendees. This year, the talented artists at Pixomondo, Cube Creative and RealtimeUK will be delivering breakdowns of everything from Star Trek to game trailers, before Chaos Group announces a new partnership with HP that is set to award big prizes for designing a habitable future on Mars.

The one-day event will be held in Stuttgart, Germany at Haus der Wirtschaft in the Mannheim Room; presentations begin Wednesday, April 25 at 2:00 p.m. While V-Ray Day sessions are open to all FMX attendees, seating is limited. Due to the exclusive content being shown, recording is not permitted.

The premier presentation features Max Reiss, VFX Supervisor at Pixomondo, who will offer an exclusive look at how the studio created 3D assets and complex environments for “Star Trek: Discovery.” Reiss will not only dissect the workflows, but will show how to take a shot from concept to final render using V-Ray.

The presentations continue with a talk by Stuart Bayley, Art Director at RealtimeUK, who will explain how his studio designs game trailers, from a creative and time management sense, using multiple projects and stunning cinematic environments as a guide. Animation fans will also be treated to a talk from Cube Creative, showing the inner workings behind TV shows like "Kaeloo" and "Athleticus."
