GDC had a booming turnout with major releases and news from top title makers and console creators. The show floor was packed with lines to see the Nintendo 3DS (yep, it’s rad), live talks from Intel and famous game engine and developer middleware from Autodesk, Havok and Speedtree.
Intel featured Reallusion, Autodesk and even Lady Gaga remixer, Justin Lassen. The technology buzz inside the booth included new rendering achievements with Intel Sandy Bridge, exciting real-time special effects from Confetti, Havok Destruction & Cloth and live podcasts from Intel Software Network TV show, ‘Visualize This!,’ hosted by Arti Gupta. John Martin joined Arti for a podcast interview that will be posted soon.
The Intel Visibly Smart theater gave Reallusion’s John Martin the stage for a talk about 2D animation for game designers and the new powertools for simplified animation in CrazyTalk Animator. John discussed the shifting size of game studios and increasing development platforms that is now creating an environment for faster production and cost effective solutions.
“CrazyTalk Animator equips game studios with a simplified solution for animation creation without the cost of a hefty license or commercial fees. CrazyTalk Animator’s tools provide a complete 2D animation solution for gamemakers and with 2D sidescroller and platform games on the rise, 2D is back with a force.,” said John to the gathering of game developers during the Intel demo and tech talk.
