Community Lore
Grey Scientist, Nordic Warrior,  Explosives Specialist, Stealth Mercenary

The goal of the project was to enrich Alien Worlds storytelling by using AW characters in 3D animations. The environments used in these shorts were acquired from the Unreal Engine Marketplace and the characters were sourced from TurboSquid. The animations were done using Rokoko MoCap suit that captured the artist’s performance as these characters in different scenarios. The raw MoCap data was then transferred to these characters in Blender, where it was cleaned up and object interactions were added. Then the animated characters were exported to Unreal Engine where they were rendered out using UE5’s cinematic tools. Finally, DaVinci Resolve was used to edit, color grade and save the short movies in mp4 format.
