Your position as an R&D Software Developer is vital to Image Engine. Through your expertise in Animation, Rigging and Creature FX challenges, you will help us create new and innovative VFX art on major Hollywood productions. Reporting to the Head of Technical Production and the R&D Lead, you will be responsible for implementing high-end tools to push our capabilities and efficiencies in these departments.
You will work closely with Rigging, CFX, and Animation TDs to build efficient workflows that push our technical capabilities to the next level, building upon the reputation for high-end creature driven VFX work that Image Engine is known for. Projects may include implementing new algorithms for specific hero creature challenges, improving the performance of our in-house nodes and deformers, or helping to identify viable 3rd party solutions for common CFX problems (eg muscles, hair, feathers), and integrating those products into our pipeline. Your passion, talent, and ideas will help us bring VFX at Image Engine to the next level of efficiency and performance.
