Following its involvement in the phenomenal success of ASSASSIN’S CREED® SYNDICATE, released for new generation gaming consoles in October, Meduzarts is especially proud of its collaboration with Ubisoft® on the creation of twenty pre-rendered scenes.
Each scene created provides an introduction to each of the elite operators that the player has the opportunity to control throughout the game. While Ubisoft crafted the modelling and animation of the characters (Ash, Thermite, Pulse etc.), all of the work on the creation of the landscapes and props, and all development work on the product’s “look” such as character tools, lighting, simulation and effects, and compositing, was forged by the Meduzarts team.
“The creation of over 10 minutes of material 100% comprised of manufactured images in only a few months called for reinvention within the team, both technically and creatively. The process and the time spent were fully optimised through the implementation of a pipeline adapted to the project’s needs in order to assure delivery of quality visuals that met the highest industry standards in record time” reveals Victor A. Rainville, Executive Producer.
“The production’s needs had a very positive effect: we put in place a wholly dedicated motivated team committed to excelling. What is more, we were able to create an unparalleled collaborative environment with Ubisoft’s teams. There is no doubt that this constructive approach had a tangible impact on each of the scenes you see today. Each image, each pixel counts and it shows.”, he adds.
Beyond the 20 cinematic scenes, Ubisoft entrusted Meduzarts with an additional animated sequence. Ubisoft’s production and marketing teams engaged Meduzarts’ artists in the creation of an animated logo and the TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® SIEGE signature. With regard to the later, the Meduzarts team built the sequence from scratch, including the creation of all the 3D elements and the animation for the animated logos.
“The final animated sequence that Ubisoft awarded us was a very nice vote of confidence on their part and we are most grateful for that.”, points out Victor A. Rainville.
TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® SIEGE is the latest in the TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX® series of tactical games. In this first person shooter, the player can incarnate different characters from five special forces units from a variety of countries whether SWAT, FBI, SAS, GIGN, GSG-9, or the Spetsnaz.
