NEWS: Autodesk Flame 2020 Uses Machine Learning to Modify Objects in Moving Footage
With a series of new features tied to machine learning, Flame 2020 offers artists significant creative flexibility and performance boosts. The new version can be discovered at NAB 2019.
Everywhere you look, two terms appear consistently: Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. They seem to be present in all modern software launched nowadays , and the fact that both terms are now consistently used by marketing makes it more difficult to become surprised. Sometimes you even go numb…
Arthur C. Clarke once said ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic’, and the machine learning technology inside of Flame is truly magic. I recently worked on a virtual set comp where they forgot to add depth-of-field on the backgrounds. It took me two hours per shot to roto and add motion blur; I ran the same shots through the Z Depth Map Generator and got results in two seconds. Wow!”
