"As for the significance of this video, there is something known as pre-rendered CG video. Compared to the originally generated CG video, this technology recreates CG video in real time without any embellishment whatsoever. "
With the advance of real time CG, Square Enix predicts that video will change to the extent that what has traditionally been perceived as a video game will seem like an actual world.
" Often used in commercials, pre-rendered CG video is a process in which a pre-computed CG image is burned to film and then made into a video. On the other hand with real time CG video, the computer generates each image frame by frame and instant by instant, so it requires a lot of computing power. In one second 30 image frames must be generated, so improving quality was a difficult ordeal, but with the increase in computer performance in recent years, it has come to the point where pre-rendered CG and real time CG are very close. Of course if only computing power is increased it is still difficult to create something realistic, but since we have a lot of expertise in this area, we have used it to our advantage."
By using real time CG, prior to constructing a building or interior, it is possible to confirm the results with a greater sense of reality than before. Square Enix says that real time CG technology can also be used in other fields of application such as automotive and health care.
