Welcome to Marwen | Project Spotlight | Unreal Engine

Kevin Baillie, VFX supervisor on the movie “Welcome to Marwen,” talks about how his group transferred the life and soul of actors’ performances to digital dolls with a novel digital manufacturing resolution. The group constructed out an in depth model of Marwen’s miniature doll city in Unreal Engine, giving director Robert Zemeckis the power to do real-time previews of movement seize, focused to costumed doll characters, in opposition to the sequences’ precise backdrops.

  1. Clearly the story is stolen from Henry Darger’s imaginary world called “In the Realms of the Unreal”!!! OMG hahaha!!!
    They indeed try to obscure it, mostly by not giving this mad man any credits.

  2. stuff like this makes me glad I chose Unreal. Unity is a little easier to get a handle on for sure, but I think the learning curve of Unreal is justified when you look at it’s capabilities and the door of opportunity it opens for employment within a range of industries. Plus it’s not going anywhere, too many studios are using it.
    There’s not a lot of scholastic education for Unreal for free out on the web, but if you pay a little there are some fantastic and cheap courses available out there that have helped me a lot so far, and gave good bang for the buck.

  3. Yay, communists are good guys, killed more, destroyed entire nations, crippled entire nations that still can’t get back on their feet. When will this american “nazis are evil” will get replaced by what actually happened? Technically seems interesting tho.

    1. Wrong. Nice job repeating the words of your J,ewish and Mason New World Order masters. They funded the Soviet Union to destroy National Socialist Germany, and as soon as that war was over, they dropped their masks and revealed their true colors starting the Cold War against Russia and plotted to destroy yet another sovereign nation in which they succeeded in 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed which was a massive victory for the New World Order gang. Stupid goyim.

    2. The Germans and Russians both suffered the same because of an international clique that laughed and made profit from the war industry in the United States. They wanted both nations destroyed so they could pave the road to the “New Woyold Order”. You are obviously a child who doesn’t know any better and has been force-fed lies all your life, so I do have patience and pity for you. +Praise the Sun

    1. +Artsy Omni Well, not a traditional headset. Ha. They will have to make a different kind that’s farther from the face or something. Idk if it’s possible, but it would be cool.

    1. UE4’s real time rendering is not suited for movie-quality VFX. It’s being used mostly for pre-viz purposes. UE4 can stream mocap data in real time, it can also be used as the Virtual Camera solution. And integrated VR support, wich can be used as a guide for mocap actors.

      Essentially, it’s a storyboarding solution for those who can’t draw.
