Overview: Fortnite's stylization permeates its models, animation and even shaders. This talk will cover the vertex shaders that bring every inanimate object in the game to life and the development process that led to this specific art direction. In-depth visual descriptions, code samples and high-level concepts will present enough information for the audience to build unique shader-based procedural animation systems of their own.
