Autodesk introduce more than 40 TV shows for new programming season

Autodesk, has announced that its media and entertainment systems and software are shaping more than 40 television shows for the 2005/2006 television programming season.
From returning favourites such as ‘Lost’ and ‘Nip/Tuck’ to provocative new shows like ‘Prison Break’ and ‘Rome’, Autodesk’s technology is relied upon by broadcasters and post-production facilities to realise edge-of-your-seat entertainment.
Mark Driscoll, Founder and President of Hollywood-based Look Effects, said: “Everyone knows that Autodesk’s visual effects tools provide creative freedom. What’s interesting is that this freedom is two-fold. We use the tools to deliver visual effects-driven shows like CSI New York. At the other end of the spectrum are the ‘hidden visual effects’ shows like The O.C. These types of shows require subtle effects like seamless transitions, colour adjustments and green screen replacements. Autodesk’s Discreet Flame and Discreet Flint systems enable us to flawlessly deliver both audible wows and undetectable story advancements.”
Look Effects also uses its Autodesk systems on ‘Criminal Minds’, ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘Malcolm in the Middle’.
A52, an Emmy award-winning visual effects and design company, employed Autodesk’s Discreet Inferno and Flame visual effects systems on the main title sequence for ‘Rome’, a new historical drama. This HBO and BBC co-production envelops viewers in the mystique of the Roman Empire of 52 BC. Created entirely in-house at A52, the title sequence combines live-action and computer-generated elements, including digital graffiti, grain and colours. Autodesk’s systems were instrumental in crafting a chariot race from varied-rate footage that required extensive 3D tracking, and for creating a camera fly-through of a dye wall. In addition, the Inferno system has a big role in crime and medical dramas, which use extensive visual effects to play out murders and surgeries.
