For most of 2018 and 2019 I worked on a planetarium show called Signs of Life for the Samuel Oschin Planetarium at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. I did the models and textures for the barren landscape of one of the exo-planets in the Trappist system. There is a combination of Quixel Megascans assets as well as original rock models I created in ZBrush. Its incredible to see in a full dome. These were rendered in Arnold for Maya and composited with matte paintings and a lot of love in Nuke by some of the other team members . We had to do the entire show using fish eye renders from Arnold which made animation and rendering a really interesting challenge. Images were 8196 x 8196 and the show is 35 minutes all CG at 60 FPS. Check out the video I linked to from a panel discussion (Me, Tom Bradley, and Gee Yeung) at last year's ZSummit in Hollywood CA. The show is about the history of searching for life in the universe and what scientists look for when they search for living things on far away worlds. If you are in Los Angeles go see "Signs of Life" at the Samuel Oschin Planetarium at Griffith Observartory. I'm very proud of the show and I think it looks stunning and its really entertaining too.
