Autodesk x Virtuos 3D Community Night heads to Kuala Lumpur (KL)! Encouraged by the success of our first community night held in Vietnam, we set our sights on the bustling capital of Malaysia to connect the creative community on the topic of animation and VFX in games. Co-hosted by Virtuos KL and Autodesk, the networking session welcomed over 90 creative professionals and C-suite leaders from leading studios in KL. 

Derrick Chong, ASEAN Industry Sales Lead at Autodesk, kicked off the session with heartfelt thanks to all attendees for joining the session. Together with Senior Solutions Engineer Siddharth Bolurker, the pair shared updates on Maya and 3ds Max, and how they envision Autodesk products improving artists’ efficiency by streamlining workflows and the management of production.
