With advancements in technology, digital video games are getting more impressive every year. Once upon a time, we thought that titles such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Max Payne were the pinnacle of computer graphics. However, today’s AAA titles are on whole another level with life-like animation. To stay ahead of the curve, Epic Games has acquired Cubic Motion, which is a longtime Epic partner. Cubic Motion works on automated performance-driven facial animation technology and its services are for video games, film, broadcast, and immersive experiences.
Cubic Motion joins the Unreal Engine team
Cubic Motion will be working closely with 3Lateral, which is another digital human company that Epic Games acquired in January last year. Epic Games, 3Lateral and Cubic Motion have also worked on several Unreal Engine-based products such as the animated short. Some notable work includes movie-making in “Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice,” “A Boy and His Kite”; real-time performance capture and the real-time, photorealistic “Siren” and “Digital Andy Serkis” demonstrations.
