Round Table – Mass Effect: Andromeda

"Criticize their work, that’s fine- as creators we often welcome critique as a way to better ourselves and the product we provide to gamers." With so much attention being paid in the last week to the animation issues seen in the previews leading up to Bioware's next big release, Mass Effect: Andromeda, we thought it would be interesting to get a...

Animation Team Size Calculator

One of the biggest areas of feedback we found in the AnimState of the Industry Survey was around people having concerns about time size, scope and proper support.

Tracking Time to Improve Efficiency
