In the CF 12th Anniversary Ceremony, the technical team broke through the limitation that all the scene details of the venue must be built one-to-one, and built a giant battle table in the virtual studio. The construction of Shanghai in 120 years was presented through real 3D virtual scene technology, using three iconic future buildings to represent the main stage and the stage of two teams. The entire scene has more than 9 million faces, spanning more than 15km in the east-west direction, and the height of the main building exceeds 500 meters.

Sophisticated Design, Dual Jib Show "Magic" Skills

The virtual studio has limited space, but it has to simultaneously present relatively independent areas with diverse functions such as contestants, host opening, and commentary. The technical team perfectly solves this "impossible" requirement through the sophisticated technical layout of "dual jib" tracking. Through the dual-jib zone tracking technology, in reality, different areas of the same scene on the same plane can present different depths of field in front of the screen. Although they are very close in deed, but "seems" far apart, the real functional areas are matched to different virtual roof tops, which constructing a sense of super-large space, presenting the visual effect of indistinguishable from true and false, thus creating the grand momentum of the CF's 12th anniversary celebration.

Optical Tracking, Steadicam Assists the Field of E-sports

This CF 12th Anniversary Ceremony is equipped with a 5-channel next-generation virtual AR rendering engine, two tracking virtual jibs, one tracking sensor Steadicam, and two sensor fixed positions. During the performance, Ncam + Steadicam was used innovatively. It is the first time in the industry to use optical tracking sensor Steadicam to shoot in a virtual studio, which achieves 360-degree surround shooting, position tracking, and recognition. It not only ensures that the camera position is not worn, but also effectively balances the engine rendering intensity.

Due to the powerful background rendering engine, the brand-new virtual AR studio technology makes this CF12 anniversary more comprehensive and magnificent. Through the asynchronous loading and unloading mechanism, the memory usage were reduced, and the real-time rendering of super-large scenes can be archived. Those novel and real scene materials are realized by advanced producers via program textures writing, thus the real virtual scene effect can be presented. At the same time, the Niagara visual effect system of the virtual engine is used to rebuild a unique particle system and realize a variety of scene effects.
