As real-time technology becomes an increasingly important part of the filmmaking process from previs to final pixels, Weta Digital is exploring just how far they can push movie-quality hair, fur, and feathers for linear storytelling in real-time. The result is ‘Meerkat’, a short film rendered entirely in Unreal Engine. The effort was to strive for the highest quality possible while maintaining as fast a speed as possible in Unreal Engine. With the right graphics card, the Meerkat short will run at real-time.
