Senior VFX artist Anders Egleus will join us all the way from Sweden to share insights into how the EA DICE team captured the look and feel of the original Star Warstrilogy for the video game.
Delve deep into the production as the duo explain how the Battlefront VFX team built upon the proven features of the Frostbite engine, modifying and extending them to create effects with large amounts of sparks, volumetric particle lighting and vivid fire, as well as blaster bolts, lightsabers, volume decals, lightning and background dog fighting (to name but a few), all while working under tight performance constraints and production schedule!
