Description

Description

At Eidos-Montreal, the art team is passionate about architecture and it shows in our games.  Deus: Ex: Mankind Divided features some of the richest environments eaver built in a video game.  In this talk, you are invited to take a peek behind the curtain.

Hubert Corriveau, Environment Director will explain the process by which Eidos-Montreal typically builds an environment using Autodesk 3ds Max. He will dive into the details such as the challenge of designing an extremely dense, narrative driven and gameplay-heavy environment while trying to stay as close as possible to real-life architectural constraints. He will also approach how to deconstruct an environment into lightweight visual modules to be able to polish them by adding unique visual elements: clutter, decals and more. How to then re-organize the modules into large, memory-intensive environments, and finally the limits of current real-time technologies and their workaround.

Hubert Corriveau

I Studied in visual arts and worked in graphic design for video games since 2000.

I worked on multiple game projects, of various scope, on both Maya and Max, ranging the pre-rendered adventure game to very low-polygon game on Mobiles to high profile AAA projects.

I am currently overseeing the production of most 3D assets done on the Deux Ex flagship titles at Eidos Montreal.
