VR Theater at SIGGRAPH 2018

The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival celebrates the rise of computer graphics as a medium for storytelling, not just in animation, but also in visual effects for movies and games. In 2017, the Computer Animation Festival expanded to include the VR Theater. In its second year, the VR Theater presented daily ticketed screenings along with individual kiosk programming, culled from more than 30 global submissions.

The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a qualifying festival.

    A few questions. If it's 360 video why have CV1 with tracking? Is there realtime content too? Is it syncronised playback? If so, what sync software do you use? Thanks!
