Unreal Contest Stuff & GDC Video

by Thomas on Aug. 30, 2003 @ 1:11 a.m. PDT | Filed under News

VE3D posted up some news (available here) from Epic Games, including links to a GDC video and the $1,000,000 NVIDIA Make Something Unreal Contest.. Here is a clip:

The video is a direct screen capture of a Matinee sequence we put together to show off what our engine could do circa GDC, 2002. This sequence captured in this video was shown behind closed doors running real-time in the Unreal Engine at our GDC booth in March 2002. It had not been publicly released prior to now. Matinee is a tool for making real-time cinematic sequences within the Unreal Editor. Matinee and other tools you can use to create sequences like this come with the PC version of Unreal Tournament 2003.

The purpose of releasing the video now is to provide a little inspiration for the real-time non-interactive movie (i.e. Machinima) category of the $1,000,000 NVIDIA Make Something Unreal Contest
