4D View Solutions is a French company specializing in photorealistic 4D Video Capture services. We help television & film productions lower production costs while improving scene visual richness. By capturing an actor’s performance just once it can be reused across multiple shots and for VFX for a marginal post-production cost.
4D Video Capture quickly converts live actor performances into 4D Video sequences. All shots can be easily imported into standard post-production workflows. Productions then composite actor performances directly into any shot at any viewing angle. Export 4D Video sequences to smartphone and tablet platforms for advertising, multi-platform and transmedia projects.
4D Video Capturing is a cost-saving tool that allows you to :
• Shoot more quickly without lots of extras
• Capture up to a hundred actor performances per day. All capturing is done in costume with accessories and without markers
• Create reusable character libraries for use across multiple shots
• Streamline production shooting and shift costs to the post-production phase
Our production team is ready to start streamlining your project. We work internationally and can provide excellent shooting facilities in France and in Tokyo through our partner of excellence, Crescent Inc.

Directors Lens is a new tool designed for animators and film directors to interactively explore a large collection of shots over their 3D animation, and rapidly create and compare multiple edits of the same sequence. Designed in mind for virtual production and rapid prototyping of synthetic movies, the tool assists the filmmaker in exploring the cinematographic possibilities of his 3D scene.
The Directors Lens engine generates shots encoding classical framing rules related to shot size (such as long/medium/close-up/extreme close-up shots), shot type (internal, external, apex, parallel, subjective) and shot composition (gaze room, rule of the thirds). The engine also selects shots according to continuity editing rules (jump-cut, 180 rule, change in size, and motion continuity). The tool is developed as a plugin in Motion Builder.

To push the realism and storytelling potential of computer-generated imagery, today all major visual effects and animation studios have shifted their production pipelines towards physically based rendering. Unfortunately, the complicated interplay of light and material interactions makes it very difficult and tedious to control the look of a scene.
Lightrig's booth at FMX 2014 will be the first public showcase of their novel and first-of-its-kind software solution for illumination editing and artistic control of lighting in realistic computer-generated imagery. Their product provides intuitive, effortless, and physically consistent editing of illumination, which enables unprecedented art-directability. With their tools, artists can focus on scene mood and storytelling, not on slow and tedious parameter tweaking and waiting for test renders. Additionally, Lightrig's tools were designed with easy integration into existing production pipelines in mind.
Digital artists, lighting and product designers, architects, and other customers with a demand for high-quality rendering and visualization can use Lightrig's product to easily achieve appealing looks, design goals, and desired scene appearances.
