Bitsquid recieves Vinnova research funding
Bitsquid recieves research funding for project within "Real-Time Visualization of film in video-gaming"
In tough competition among 302 applicants, Bitsquid is one of approximately 30 companies that has received funding from Vinnova - Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems. The money will be used to research and develop a tool for producing movies in the Bitsquid game engine. The tool will allow camera positioning, cutting, animation, lighting and other techniques typically used in high quality movie production.
Gaming technology differs from traditional computer movie making technology in that everything happens in real-time. With gaming technology, one second of movie takes one second to generate. You are actually watching the movie as it is being rendered. In contrast, with traditional computer generated film making, it can take hours or days to render one second of film.
The faster rendering allows movies to be made cheaper and in a more iterative and dynamic way, as cameras, lights and animations can be repositioned and tweaked without having to spend days or weeks to see the result. “This leads to huge cost savings for Bitsquid’s established customer base and also opens up new markets in the movie- and real estate sales industry.” says Bitsquid CEO Johan Strömberg.
