Dissolving realities in Vietnam

posted by Patrick Tanguay   Feb 07, 2020

The overlap of gaming engines, movies, and reality is an intersection I find fascinating right now. A recent example is how The Mandalorian uses Epic’s Unreal engine to generate live background scenes, which are sometimes even kept in the final shots as is.

In the above video, it’s Ruben Fro mixing Unity (another game engine) with a “point cloud” derived from 360 videos. The resulting scene makes for an eery mix which wouldn’t feel out of place in a scifi film.
