Wow, what a crazy few days it’s been. Today was the public release of the Launch video I’ve been working on, so check out the link and let us know what you think. Everyone involved with the video has been working tirelessly around the clock (my sincere thanks to them all!), and one of the reasons for that the action seen in the video was all done in-game.
I’ve directed a bunch of the SHIFT2 UNLEASHED videos thus far, and reading the comments on YouTube afterwards has been interesting. A comment that popped up a couple of times, particularly with videos like our Pagani Huayra special, was whether the cars were CG or actual in-game footage. I can confirm that the way we capture the footage is to have someone play the game, using the same cars and tracks that are available out of the box. We also don’t use any special controls; the driving is all done with wheel/pedal combos (G25 and G27) or Xbox controllers.
Now it’s time to get some sleep!
