Explore how Gearbox Studio Québec built a pipeline from the ground up to support the delivery of cinematic content for New Tales from the Borderlands in a short period of time.
Marion Guignolle, Senior Technical Animator, shares how her team worked with large amounts of animation content and how they automated file creation and data management using Maya and ShotGrid. She'll walk through how to transform manual and tedious tasks into an automated workflow adapted to game development, preventing human errors and allowing artists to focus on their craft while saving time and sanity.
Attendees will be presented with Gearbox Studio Québec's solution for automating scene creation and data transfer using ShotGrid, Maya and Unreal for New Tales from the Borderlands. Attendees will learn about the team's thought process. This includes how and what team members prioritized and what they learned from their mistakes to make a solid, modular pipeline adaptable for future projects.
This presentation is for artists, technical artists (focusing on animation), and producers/leads (mostly mid-senior level) that want to know more about cinematic pipelines. The content assumes the audience knows the basic principles of building game cinematics.
