What we're about

The 3ds London | 3D User Group meets on the first Wednesday of every month. Started in 2007, the group enjoys a great number of professional members from London's advertising, architectural, visual effects, games, animation and interactive industries. We meet to discuss ideas, jobs, tech and projects in a friendly, relaxed setting.

The 3ds London brand is globally recognised as a 3D networking event. We have democratised to welcome members who use every DCC software, (including 3ds Max), plus all game engines and other industry tools. Presentations are focused on the artistic and creative processes within our diverse community.

We strive for gender and cultural equality and balance in our group and are accountable for reaching this goal.

See below for details; Headline Presentations Rockstar North - Miriam Bellard Environment Design as Spatial Cinematography: Theory and Practice Miriam is an architect that leads the visual development team at Rockstar North. Her presentation explores spatial cinematography using examples from GTA V Online DLC (pre-production to final art). A truly cinematic experience can be developed by adapting film concepts such as shots, editing and 2D screen design as well as understanding how the player interacts with and perceives the game environment. Miriam will discuss the effect of the 3D environment and architecture on the cinematic experience, including through movement, player attention, and spatial design.
