The New Art of Virtual Moviemaking
Autodesk®, a leader in design, engineering and entertainment software, asked Gamecaster to contribute to an Autodesk White Paper entitled, "The New Art of Virtual Moviemaking". The purpose of this White Paper is to help film professionals to better understand virtual production processes for moviemaking and the increasing importance of Virtual Moviemaking to the entire film production industry.
The Gamecaster GCS3 virtual camera controller is featured on page 8, and Autodesk acknowledges Gamecaster's contribution to the White Paper on page 19.

"Today, Virtual Moviemaking technology is being deployed by pioneering directors working on large-scale, blockbuster, science fiction and animation projects. Examples include James Cameron on Avatar, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson on Tintin and Robert Zemeckis on A Christmas Carol. These directors and their production companies are already designing and building special virtual cinematography sound stages and it is not a stretch to envisage a future in which most major sound stages will have Virtual Moviemaking capabilities. Today the technology is the preserve of large-budget productions but, given the rapid evolution of computer performance and capability, there is no reason not to expect that, as with Digital Intermediates (DI), Virtual Moviemaking will become accessible to a broader range of production budgets.
So profound is the impact of Virtual Moviemaking on the creative process that it will most certainly be felt across all departments and all levels of production by offering greater creative options and fostering a new collaborative environment to explore the moviemaking process."
