Thanks, Allar! Good luck with your new project!
Who just carries around $250.000 worth of files on a portable hardrive without any backups.. The bug is stupid, but this guy is a moron.
Michael Allar here. Thanks a bunch for posting this, I really appreciate it. I'm also the guy who wrote that Confessions article that was posted here on 80.lvl as well.
Check out this GDC 2017 session about several exciting upcoming animation and physics features for Unreal Engine 4. New workflows for previewing and editing animation, new tools for creating physics simulations with improved quality and performance, and other ways to improve the quality of digital characters.
As part of this showcase, 3Lateral presents Gene Splicer, its novel approach to parametric modeling of avatars embedded in Unreal Engine, which is both a production and runtime solution for democratizing high-end character rigs. Gene Splicer evaluates the appropriate rig for the animated avatar created by user, and this all happens in milliseconds. This solution is based on a database of scanned people, and through this database approach we’re generating truly unique characters with appropriate facial gestures for their anatomy, while keeping the ability to use the same animation across the created population. This technology is not just high-quality, but is also highly optimized for both high-end cinematics and VR applications.
