Ding Gangyi, director of the Digital Performance and Simulation Technology Laboratory at The Beijing Institute of Technology, and his team members smiled with joy when they saw the performance go smoothly.Over the past two years, they have fully rehearsed the opening ceremony 12 times on the original “virtual Opening Ceremony” platform, with every detail in mind.Ding gangyi’s team has been researching simulation technology for more than 20 years, and has provided scientific and technological services for major events such as the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the “Beijing 8 Minutes” of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, the mass parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of The People’s Republic of China and the centennial celebration of the founding of the Communist Party of China.Since October 2019, the team has been involved in the creative work for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.”We only provided virtual simulation support for the 2008 Olympic Games.Fourteen years later, we have used 3d simulation technology to simulate the whole process of the Opening ceremony, including the actors, lights, music, fireworks, the Olympic torch and even the positioning of the broadcasters.””The platform is equivalent to building an online ‘virtual opening ceremony,’ which is the ‘scientific brain’ behind the performance and helps the director team intuitively understand the overall effect of the opening ceremony,” ding said.In order to build the platform of “virtual opening Ceremony”, the digital performance and simulation technology team of Beijing Institute of Technology created a set of “intelligent creation and rehearsal Integration” system and created a fully simulated “virtual nest” according to the requirements of the opening ceremony director group.The simulation system is accurate to every actor’s position, action and pace speed, and accurate to every minute and second of the opening ceremony, providing strong scientific and technological support for the planning, design and rehearsal of the opening ceremony.Before the performance, the system has rehearsed the opening ceremony about 12 times in advance, combined with the on-site row rehearsal.Bird’s nest environment simulation “at the opening ceremony of each program, all need to actors, music, stage and screen effects to cooperate with each other on the ground, but these elements from different teams, and basic it is a new creation, how to realize the sound, actors and picture perfect cooperation, mutually consistent with time and space, will be adjusted continuously in the simulation system, simulation, find the optimal solution.”According to Ding Gangyi, through the simulation platform, the creative ideas of the director’s creative team can be disassembled, refined and refined into training manuals to guide training, thus greatly improving the rehearsal efficiency of large-scale performances without repeated experiments by actors.
