Photogrammetry and Star Wars Battlefront

Presentation by Andrew Hamilton and Ken Brown from DICE at GDC 2016.

Overview

At DICE, this technique was first used on Battlefield and they fully embraced the technology and workflow for Star Wars: Battlefront. This talk will cover their research and development, planning and production, techniques, key takeaways and plans for the future. The speakers will cover photogrammetry as a technology, but more than that, show that it’s not a magic bullet but instead a tool like any other that can be used to help achieve your artistic vision and craft.

Takeaway
Come and learn how (and why) photogrammetry was used to create the world of Star Wars. This talk will cover Battlefront’s use of of the technology from pre-production to launch as well as some of their philosophies around photogrammetry as a tool. Many visuals will be included!

Intended Audience
A content creator friendly talk intended for pretty much any developer, especially those involved in 3D content creation. It is not a technical talk focused on the code or engineering of photogrammetry. The speakers will quickly cover all basics, so absolutely no prerequisite knowledge required.
