Art-directable render-time procedurals

Create tools to procedurally generate vegetation and placement of objects in an artist-friendly and art-directable way that will get its full complexity at render-time and have preview objects to work with interactively. For example, to be able to procedurally grow or place objects more densely in shaded areas or grow moss on top of geometries as is done in [Wonder Moss] without the cost of storing all the generated geometry that would take up a lot of space but instead be generated at render-time.

Automatic tracking of facial feature points

We capture our facial animation using cameras attached to a helmet worn by actors. To accurately convert the captured performance to a digital character we first need to track a large number of points on the actors face which is a time consuming process. There are numerous off the shelf software for tracking feature points on image sequences but they are not very robust without user input since they are not made specifically for faces they do not take into consideration such constraints as how the points can move relative to each other or the structure of the face. We have a lot of data that has been previously tracked using conventional methods that could be used as training data for a deep learning approach.
