Interactive Global Illumination in Frostbite (Sebastien Hillaire, Electronic Arts)
In this talk, Frostbite Rendering will present the results of ongoing R&D being conducted on our high quality static light baking solution (Flux) to reach the goal of an interactive GI workflow for artists. We will describe the techniques we applied to migrate our lightmap renderer to GPU and talk about future avenues we see opening up from this effort. Flux is used in FIFA, Madden and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Shiny Pixels and Beyond: Rendering Research at SEED (Johan Andersoon, Electronic Arts) (Colin Barre-Brisebois, Electronic Arts)
In this talk, we will present results from the latest research done at SEED, a cross-disciplinary team working on cutting-edge, future graphics technologies and creative experiences at Electronic Arts. We will explain in detail the techniques from our research, so that attendees can understand how these results were achieved. We hope to inspire developers and provide a glimpse of the future with novel rendering techniques that could power the creative experiences of tomorrow.
