The Future of Real-Time Lighting: Panel Discussion

Date: Wednesday 1st March Time: 2.00- 3.00pm Location: West Hall 3022 GDC 2017 Scheduler

Real-time lighting is a relatively young field within games. It is also one of the most important. As cinematographers have long known, it can make or break the final image, set the mood or enhance the story. But creating real-time lighting in games comes with a unique set of creative and technological challenges. This panel of industry experts will explore current issues in real-time lighting and discuss what the future holds in terms of opportunities and challenges. We will conduct the session in a town-hall style with a moderator and the opportunity for attendees to ask questions to the panel.
