3D Art Goes Multiplayer: Behind the Scenes of Adobe Substance's "End of Summer" Project with Omniverse

Join the Adobe Substance 3D team as they break down the process of creating “End of Summer,” an inspiring 3D project completed using NVIDIA Omniverse, Unreal Engine 5, and the Substance 3D Collection in an end-to-end Universal Scene Description (USD) pipeline. Discover key workflow highlights including the team’s creative approach, how they used cutting-edge 3D tools and techniques, and the benefits of using USD in collaborative 3D projects.

3D by AI: Using Generative AI and NeRFs for Building Virtual Worlds

Building virtual worlds such as digital twins of factories, warehouses, or city streets is an extremely involved and technical process for today’s technical artists and can take months to complete. NeRFs (Neural Radiance Fields) can accelerate this process by scanning the real world into our virtual worlds, and we can further speed things up by employing Generative AI techniques to create objects and materials from scratch. Join this session to see some of NVIDIA’s latest work in Generative AI and NeRFs for building virtual worlds in NVIDIA Omniverse.

Custom World Building With AI Avatars: The Little Martians Sci-Fi Project

We'll explore the role of physical spaces and objects in metaverse creation. Using 3D scanning technologies, one can easily create an editable digital twin of any space, person, or object. With NVIDIA’s Omniverse tools, especially Audio2Face, it’s possible to animate custom avatars with their own voices and intelligence. We'll share the technical and creative process developed for the speculative sci-fi world we call Little Martians, which combines language models, text-to-speech, 3D scanning, 3D animation, and custom AI image generation.

Multi-App Visualization With No Exports

Multi-App Visualization With No Exports

In pairing Autodesk Maya with NVIDIA Omniverse, Anselem Nkoro, a.k.a. AskNK, is able to accelerate his workflow through live-sync capabilities across multiple 3D apps. Made possible through Pixar’s USD file format, this removes the pain of importing and exporting scenes in various programs and allows him to iterate faster.


More Iterations and Faster Rendering

More Iterations and Faster Rendering

From creating street art in Rio de Janeiro to publishing children’s books, Vanessa Rosa has turned to Omniverse’s multi-app workflow and USD capabilities to accelerate her design iteration. Rosa remarks, "The power of Omniverse is that it makes 3D simulations accessible to a much larger audience of creators, rather than just 3D professionals."
