The complexity and size of the game worlds is ever-increasing and tools need to meet that demand. At Remedy, we have been working on new tools and tech stack to allow us to build worlds faster and with more detail than ever before. At the core of our solution is Universal Scene Description (OpenUSD) by Pixar which provides a powerful composition engine as well as a format compatible with the DCCs. In this presentation, we share how we integrated OpenUSD into our tools and engine, what kind of technical and user experience challenges we have faced, and show examples how we have tackled those while having two major game projects using it throughout the development.
Attendees are expected to learn how Remedy has integrated OpenUSD into their world building tools, what challenges it has posed and how those have been tackled.
Programmers, technical artists and UX designers interested in integrating OpenUSD into engine and/or content pipelines. To be able to fully enjoy this presentation basic knowledge of OpenUSD and intermediate technical expertise is expected.
