virtual production shoot with real-time compositing using Unreal Engine By Virtual Star Studios

Virtual Production is a term that’s been around for a while but mainly gained popularity in recent years with the help of the game engine Unreal Engine from the company Epic Games who is making the smash hit Fortnite. This engine is very powerful and can manage to render high-quality 3D graphics in real-time. This is of course something that’s perfect for on-set visualizing and real-time composting.

If you combine this with an on-camera tracking solution like the one we’ve built for ourselves you have a powerful tool for any production or director to bring their vision live on set in real-time instead of needing to wait until post-production to know if you framed or lit the scenes correctly.

15 min production with Dave Dalone from H.E.A.T. In this behind the scenes, you can follow as we prep the scene in Unreal Engine and then record the real-time composite straight from the camera. The camera is being tracked with HTC Vive. You can see Richard using his phone to trigger the explosions, which is possible via TouchOSC and Aximmetry.
