Session Name:

Shoot for the Sky: The Ambitious HDR Time-Lapse Skies of 'Forza Horizon 3'

Overview:

With 'Forza Horizon 3', Playground Games undertook an ambitious and novel approach to representing the sky over time. The team developed a technique for shooting high resolution 24 hour HDR time-lapse photography using a custom camera rig, on location, and then projected these evolving sky captures onto the in-game sky. The improvements this brought to the lighting system as a whole and the unexpected benefits of capturing the true changing nature of the sky offer a unique option for any videogame/real-time application that features moving time of day.
