Technical Artist Roundtable

Jeff Hanna  (Senior Tools Programmer, NVIDIA)

Pass Type: All Access Pass, Core Pass

Topic: Programming, Visual Arts

Format: Roundtable

Vault Recording: TBD

Audience Level: All

The role of a technical artist has grown from a clean-up artist and data wrangler to someone in charge of complex content creation pipelines and asset tracking systems. Increasingly, the lines between programmer and artist are blurring for technical artists. Tool creation, scripting, shader creation, working with both programmers and artists, and managing workflow are all skills required of a modern technical artist.

This roundtable will bring together technical artists from across the industry to share their knowledge, experiences, and tips for being the best at their jobs.

Takeaway

Attendees will learn what common skills effective technical artists share and how to apply those skills to their specific company. They will leave with a better understanding of tech art and the value it will bring to their projects.

Intended Audience

This is for technical artists who strive daily to improve workflow, increase efficiency, and maintain art production pipelines. Artists and programmers are welcome too, as their thoughts and expectations will help define the roles of all technical artists.
