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. This project aims for the highest possible quality while maintaining as fast a frame rate as possible in Unreal Engine—up to real time, depending on your graphics card.
