A new video from a BAFTA event in London gave a look at the possible future of video game effects. The Inquirer (no, not the tabloid) attended the event, in which Lucasfilm chief technology strategy officer Kim Libreri showed off a video from a short film that was used as a prototype for Star Wars 1313, the "adult-targeted" Star Wars game that was shuttled after Disney bought Lucasfilm.
You can see the video below, which shows how they've used digital effects to largely make post-production work instantaneous. Said Libreri,
"Everyone has seen what we can do in movies, We think that computer graphics are going to be so realistic in real time computer graphics that, over the next decade, we'll start to be able to take the post out of post-production; where you'll leave a movie set and the shot is pretty much complete."
Libreri added, "If you combine video games with film-making techniques, you can start to have these real deep, multi-user experiences. Being able to animate, edit and compose live is going to change the way we work and it's really going to bring back the creative experience in digital effects."
