"Today, 3D animation schools must offer a wide range of skill sets and competencies to make sure students can meet the high level and variety of creative demands that will be placed upon them across the movie, VFX, and gaming industries. At Ecole Georges Mélies, we are dedicated to leveraging creative and artistic techniques, technology, and software to enhance and expand our creative learning model," said Franck Petitta, directeur général, Ecole George Mélies.
"E-on software's VUE and PlantFactory software will enable us to teach our students new skills in environment and vegetation design, and the software is easier to use and less expensive than other software solutions. VUE and PlantFactory will be used along with additional software such as 3dsMax, Maya, Unreal, Unity 3d, and others," continued Petitta. "Students and professors have already found VUE and PlantFactory to be highly useful tools in their projects and education."
"One of our alumni who recently used VUE for a movie project was honored by several festival awards," commented Patrice David, communications director, Ecole George Mélies. The student, Ersan Musa, said, "Advised by an environmental software artist, I tested VUE. It was so powerful yet easy to use that I decided to use it in my graduation movie, with great success!" Ersan Musa's team, which also included Hélène Guillem and Colin Huard, used VUE mainly for creating the ecosystems along with Maya and Nuke software.
