“A few years ago, we got together as a team and brainstormed where we thought we could push forward the state of the art and real-time graphics,” Brian announced at the beginning of the video. They wanted to make advancements in two directions. One of them was global illumination which will make the graphics look less static. This became possible due to a system they created called “Lumen”.
The team was also trying to address the issue of virtualized geometry. “The artists wouldn’t have to be concerned over poly counts, draw calls, or memory. We could directly use film quality assets and bring them straight into the engine.
And that’s a big deal for artists,” they elaborated in the video. For that purpose, they created a system called Nanite.
