• Lucasfilm will combine video games and movies to axe post-production process

      OVER THE NEXT DECADE video game engines will be used in film-making, with the two disciplines combining to eliminate the movie post-production process.

Speaking at the Technology Strategy Board event at BAFTA in London this week, the company's chief technology strategy officer Kim Libreri announced that the developments in computer graphics have meant Lucasfilm has been able to transfer its techniques to film-making, shifting video game assets into movie production.

        Pretty interesting stuff from a technical standpoint; but I'm always worried that if you make things too easy and convenient for artists, then they tend to get lazy and their creativity suffers. The graphics look great for a video game, but there is no way it could pass as photorealistic at this stage.

        It was cool to see the original Trandoshan character on there, though. Hopefully, that's a hint that the species will be making a return in the Sequel Trilogy.

        Of course it's not perfect yet, but that's pretty astounding so far. The fact that it can take the mocap information and render it that well in real-time is amazing.
