As the summer movie season kicks into high gear, we talk with a scientist about some of the challenges in simulating the way everyday objects behave on the big screen through computer generated imagery (CGI). Etienne Vouga's computer simulations have helped bring to life a wizard's hair in The Hobbit and clothing in Tangled.
If you’ve seen movies like Tangled and the Hobbit you might have been unknowingly exposed to new UT Computer Science professor Etienne Vouga.
UT Computer Science is excited to welcome four new faculty members coming to campus in 2014. They all have incredibly impressive credentials and research experience, and we’re extremely grateful that they have chosen to join our family.
