Dublin, Monday 12th November 2007: Havok, the premier provider of interactive software to digital creators in the games and movie industries, invites you to join us at the Montreal International Games Summit (MIGS), where we are hosting a seminar on Havok Behavior. MIGS takes place on 27th and 28th November at the Palais des Congres, Montreal.
The seminar, titled Bridging the Creative Void: Composing character performances with the Havok Behavior Tool, is given by Jeff Yates, VP Product Development on Tuesday November 27 at 11:30am in Room 525AB. Registration is available on www.sijm.ca/en
Havok Behavior is a system for developing event-driven character behaviors in a game. The Havok Behavior product is comprised of an intuitive composition tool for artists and designers, and a run-time SDK for game programmers. Together, the Behavior tool and SDK provide "what you see is what you get" results, accelerating development of cutting edge character performances for current and next-generation game titles. Behavior is currently being used in the development of a number of AAA games.
Havok will also be previewing new technology, as well as discussing new features for the upcoming 5.5 release. If developers are interested in private meetings with Havok, please contact MIGS@havok.com
