CRYENGINE Technology to Form the Foundation of New Film Engine Software
Film Engine licenses Crytek’s All-in-One Development Tool to Unlock New Possibilities for Filmmakers
Frankfurt am Main (Germany) April 26, 2016 – Crytek today revealed details of how its cutting-edge CRYENGINE game development technology will power the newly-announced real-time movie production software, Film Engine.
Film Engine is the name for both an entirely new company and digital content creation suite. The innovative toolset is the first all-in-one, real-time storytelling software to streamline every aspect of the traditional film production pipeline, and drastically reduces the time and resources necessary to create top quality visual effects and CG animation films.
CRYENGINE’s Creative Director Frank Vitz said: “CRYENGINE has proven to be perfectly suited as the backbone for Film Engine because of the speed of iteration, scalability, visual fidelity, and 3D rendering power at its core. Real-time technology is about to become a vital centerpiece in this new era of digital content creation, and it’s very exciting to see CRYENGINE’s capabilities being unlocked in that new domain.”
