James Cameron Headlines SolidWorks World 2010

By DE staff   

General James Cameron

"Avatar" Director to share stories of overcoming technical and business challenges.

Winner of 11 Oscars, director James Cameron has been scheduled as a featured special guest at SolidWorks World 2010, taking place Jan. 31 through Feb. 3 in Anaheim, Calif.

The making of Cameron’s new 3D feature film “Avatar,” required more than two years of new production technology development. Innovations include image-based facial performance capture, a real-time virtual camera for computer-generated production, and the SIMULCAM system, all of which help weave computer-generated characters into live-action scenes.


Cameron’s appearance will be one of many highlights at SolidWorks World 2010. Attendees will present more than 150 in-depth training sessions and more than 100 SolidWorks-designed products will be on display in more than 6,000 square feet of space within the Partner Pavilion exhibition hall.

In addition, nearly the entire DS SolidWorks R&D staff will be on site and the general sessions will include a sneak preview of SolidWorks 2011 software and presentations from DS SolidWorks CEO Jeff Ray, Dassault Systèmes President and CEO Bernard Charlès, and DS SolidWorks Co-Founder and Group Executive Jon Hirschtick.
