We had a fantastic turnout at the CDE Showcase as part of the BFX Festival 2019. CDE Research Engineers from both the University of Bath and Bournemouth University took part, showcasing research posters and demos. The showcase took place in early October. BFX has been operatingand hosted by Bournemouth University since 2013. The festival has become established as an international event that inspires both current and future generations of artists, technicians and engineers, and that celebrates all aspects of VFX, animation and games’ unique mix of technical and creative practices.

CDE Research Engineers had access to networkingwith industry members and were able showcase their research to industry and future research generations, gaining valuable feedback regarding their research interests. It was the perfect opportunity to bring the research engineers together for some fun but primarily to share ideas and key learnings.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the showcase. We look forward to seeing you all again next year, with even more interactive demos.
