Mass Effect Legendary – Boot Flow.
With BioWare releasing Mass Effect Legendary Collection for the fall of 2020, our friends at EA reached back out to our K+C CG/VFX team to create a logo bootflow animation in line with the previous beloved BioWare Anthem intro we had created. Our challenge was to upres, re-texture, re-light and animate CG models of their hero Shepard character along with 5 other characters.
Character 4k Upres + Gaming.
As with all EA bootflow animations, there needs to be a lot happening within a quick 5-second animation. Although our CG/VFX team received some assets from the last 2017 Mass Effect game, we needed to re-create the new characters to hold up in a 4K delivery. Combining body parts from separate models and 3ds Max files to Maya files, our team incorporated all of the characters into a new blue BioWare branded world.
