What We Do

The RIT MAGIC Center is a university-wide research center with a multi-disciplinary entrepreneurial approach to digital media research and production.  With a focus on Media, Arts, Games, Interaction, and Creativity, MAGIC blurs the lines between art and technology.

Research highlight: we are blurring the lines between film and games with virtual production

Virtual production is the current revolution in film and media production, representing the deployment of extensive computer-generated graphics, 3D art, motion capture, in-camera visual effects, and real-time rendering via game engines. With partners and alumni from Epic Games to The Third Floor and most of the major Hollywood studios pioneering these technologies, RIT is building a full research and learning ecosystem around these emerging workflows.
