Fall Foliage in ‘Redfall’: Creating the Essence of Northeast America
Using individually 3D-modeled leaves as well as procedural methods, Ehsan and the Arkane Austin team created an impressive foliage asset library and implemented a workflow that allowed for easy iterations based on internal and client needs.
Ehsan will also do a post-mortem on Redfall‘s workflow, looking at how processes and procedures could be improved for future games and projects.
