Ego Central to Machinima Filmmaker Ken Thain

Wednesday, March 08, 2006

Heard that pin drop?

Things still seem fairly quiet on the Machinima front. I haven't had the opportunity to watch many new films so hopefully there isn't some top quality works slipping by (no big talk of them right now anyways). The Xfire results is the only real indicator I've seen recently of what may be worth watching recently.

Its been 1 week since my employment at BioWare and things are very cool. There is a lot to get up to speed with but my experience with UT2004 helps a lot since Mass Effect is Unreal Engine 3 based. I'm really looking forward to when a UE3 based game is released so I can do some personal 'releaseable' machinima in it. Mostly because I'll be very up to speed in it! Think 'ultimate control'. I've been pretty much immersed in FaceFX right now. I haven't played with HL2 FacePoser so I can't compare but it is *very* cool with good bone rigged models. People will see more of it at the Game Developers Conference this month.

At least with all the 'doom and gloom' postings about and within the game industry, things are looking very good from where I'm sitting. :)
