    That's probably why a certain 343i employee has so much time on his hands & spends his whole life fucking around on a certain forum (GAF & new Era)...:rolleyes:

    I thought the Luminous Engine went to the same place your pairs of socks go when you wash them and only get one back.

    This tiny tiny tiny midget tree in the bottom righthand corner of the last picture looks REALLY weird. :p

    yes though all the trees look tiny as well as the small rocks and no ground shadows from the person thus I assume this person is high up in the air, flying or jumped off a cliff?
    It does look pretty good though, though mainly due to good quality assests and nothing special in the engine AFAIKS

    Recently it often seems that grey / brownish look of UE3 days is coming back.

    Yeah, it feels like the games are starting to have the same color palette again...Though I presume this one has its custom engine?

    I guess the reason is hiding discontinuities with using just one color. As the scene is composed form a limited number of rock / vegetation models, you want those models to be similar and uniform. Otherwise they pop out and form unwanted patterns.
    Now, with increasing level of detail this problem becomes harder to solve again, forcing them to make stuff even more uniform? But IDK, lacking experience with current days detailed assets.
    Maybe it's indeed just art direction and they want it this way?
    If not, some low frequency data to alter colors gradually could help at low cost?

    Yeah their own, but i don't think it's related to engines. Quake was maybe the first to demonstrate this problem :)

    Pretty sure it's just from the different time of day and various cloud/weather systems on Luminous. In FFXV even with a slight change in the the post effects, sky and time of day will have a drastic effect on the hue/colors of the whole game world & objects, some sky conditions giving more muted colors. In the debug build you can change the sky conditions at will.

    In the previous dev footage for their new game they showed clear blue skies and everything was bright and green compared to the conditions in the new trailer.

    Basically you demonstrate how they use color grading to fake TOD and weather conditions, hihi :D

    It's interesting how the city image with the blue sky looks worst, while most colorful. All other images look better and more natural. Limiting color also helps with hiding lighting issues, but i assume that's more an issue of the past.
    I'm not sure what i complain about. I had similar issues when editing real world photos and movies for work, and i remember those problems were amplified with the move from film to digital. It was not possible to fix them with grading, and i never understood the exact reasons.

    Loveing the gameplay footage. also reminescent of the UE5 demo a bit.
    I just hope the magnificent landscapes won't be too empty.
    The traversial animation looks good. But the animation when she is blocking or attacking the ennemies looks a bit stiff to me.
    Can't wait to learn and see more.
