VFX Futures Podcast: Facial capture, CG and cut scenes on Codemasters’ ‘F1 2021’

02 September 2021

How do cut scenes in games get made? For the story mode ‘Braking Point’ cinematics in Codemasters’ F1 2021, our team took motion captured performances and delivered final shots with Unreal Engine, the first time we’d employed the game engine like this. It was also the first time we used DI4D’s new digital double animation pipeline, PURE4D, for facial capture.

To get a handle on how this worked for the cut scenes,  befores & afters’ Ian Failes chatted with our CG director Ian Jones and DI4D co-founder Dug Green in his latest VFX Futures podcast.
