SIGGRAPH 2015 LA – Complete Photo Galleries
Here is our complete Siggraph 2015 photo gallery, with notes. All these photos were taken by associate editor, Akiko Ashley, who was on the show floor for three days. Be sure to read her in-depth feature report here on all the big news from Los Angeles.
This final gallery report wraps up our coverage of this year’s events.
Erik Tran is showing off Toon Boom’s popular animator software packages, of which Harmony, its 2D animation package, is considered a market leader in this category. The other popular tool they have is Storyboard Pro, for story boarding work, naturally. Customers include Fox, Disney, CN, Dreamworks and others. Harmony comes in three levels, Harmony Essentials, Harmony Advanced and Harmony Premium. All their products work on Mac as well as Windows.
Esri’s CityEngine was a big draw at Siggraph 2015 and the tool is growing in importance across a range of industries, with architecture and urban design being one of the largest. We provide more information on CityEngine here.

Akiko Ashley felt NVIDIA’s new rendering software API technology—a new suite called DesignWorks—was the show-stopper of Siggraph this year. The physically-based rendering technology uses iRay technology in combination with its Quadro graphics cards. Ms. Ashley covers the details here.
OTOY seems to be using Siggraph each year for major announcements and this year was no different. Will Willis of OTOY, and some of his colleagues in the background, are shown in the photo above. OTOY showed the first-ever, room-sized Light Field in VR at Siggraph. In addition to that they had updates to Octane Render and several other items new at the show. Our full report is here.
