For the last 10 years, all the movies that have been nominated for the category of best visual effects have been made with the help of Nvidia Quadro graphics. This year is no different. It is interesting to see where Nvidia started from and where it is now and that the technology that the company has created is powering more than just games.
The 90th annual Oscars will be held on the 4th of March and it is interesting to note that Nvidia employees have been working with movie makers in order to bring ideas to reality. The following are the nominations for this year when it comes to best visual effects.
- War for the Planet of the Apes
- Kong: Skull Island
- Blade Runner 2049
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
All these movies are great in their own ways and it is a tough decision to make. We will see who wins the award for the best visual effects but without a doubt, all these movies had pretty great visual effects and all of them are winners to me. Daniel Barrett, animation supervisor at Weta Digital had the following to say:
“War for the Planet of the Apes was a leap forward for our animation. We are now working in real time with our animation puppets, even with dozens of characters and full-resolution facial rigs, which means our animators are right there in the moment with the characters. NVIDIA GPU technology helped us get there.”
