You might remember that back in 2012, LucasArts revealed a new Star Wars game called Star Wars 1313. It looked like an impressive game, but it was halted after Disney announced that they would be pulling the plug on Star Wars titles. Well now it is back. Kind of.
Not as a video game, but to be used as a post-production tool for moviemakers. This news comes from a report that revealed that the company showed off the engine used to make the game at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. With real-time motion capture, it will “take the post out of post-production,” as the CG can be captured during normal filming instead of having to go through the modeling and animation process. That is super helpful in film making.
It does have a lot of potential, but the company believes that it will be a while before the technology can be used as a complete replacement process and expects that graphics will be realistic enough within the next 10 years. I can’t wait to see what happens.
