Building the Foundation

The industry needs a data bridge, to get data out of the many applications it uses. Greg Schleusner will illustrate how we need to start with the Foundation. If we take the good ideas from USD in the VFX world, we can preserve the data and enable the ability to work across many new tools and not necessarily have them fight to replace each other. Geometry is only one part of that data jigsaw. APIs are the Future, but they also will bring an end to the flexibility of files and rely on vendors being truly open to access, even from competitors. Schleusner argues the Foundation of the Bridge needs to bring all the knowledge we produce together, not lock it away. We don’t need a new file format, we need a new way of assembling knowledge, in a machine interoperable way
