The senior Cloth TD must have a demo reel that demonstrates creation of dynamic cloth simulations and other realistic effects using nCloth/ syflex. Excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic, team player, and the ability to take direction are essential. The senior Cloth TD reports to the CG/VFX Supervisor.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
* Produce photorealistic simulations with high resolution geometry * Develop innovative, believable and beautiful solutions to challenging and complex problems * Sets up rigFX for cloth simulations that is stable and versatile for a characters range of motion. * Works in partnership with lighters & compositors to ensure shots are delivered to the very highest standard * Accountable for meeting productivity and quota targets on time and at a high level of quality * Troubleshoot and solve problems independently. * Liaise with the asset department at build phase, to achieve desired results for fur and cloth simulations. * Writing tutorials to document new techniques * Work with programming and tools teams to develop tools/ scripts/ plug-ins to streamline the department * Work to high aesthetic level being able self critique * The initiative to see anticipate future problems and develop solutions or tools accordingly * Teach others in the team
* 5 years experience in film or animation production as an TD * 2 of the above years experience using Maya nCloth/Syflex for a variety of effects (including cloth simulation, gore effects, muscle simulation) * Mel scripting is a minimum requirement, python scripting preferred * Artists must be able to take direction and work in a team focused environment, good communication skills are a must * Solid work ethic and a positive attitude in the face of challenging situations * FX Animation Experience * Familiar with pipeline issues * Ability to establish priorities, work independently or within a group, and proceed with objectives without supervision. * Good understanding of linux / unix based operating systems * A reel demonstrating outstanding visual and technical ability * Strong problem solving skills * Knowledge of C++ would be a bonus * Previous rigging experience
