V-scout, ILM’s virtual set scouting tool. “What if you could scout your sets before you built them?” explained Bredow. Using a simple interface on an iPad, this tool is designed for cinematographers or art directors or anyone on a film to consider locations or digital assets for review. . . .
Bredow says V-scout was shown to a big-name director via VR goggles, who at first was interested in the VR but then within 30 seconds began discussing the asset - a ship - as if was a real creation without mentioning the VR at all.
