  Thanks to modern technology

Date Thursday, May 31st 2018, 4:47 AM; Icon 37; Date 0; Attitude +0 | 0 | -0

Thanks to modern technology, realistic video game images are constantly blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. Recently, I got to sit in on a Madden NFL photo session with the Baltimore Ravens to learn how the pixelated players in classic versions have evolved into lifelike characters that make you forget it's just a game.

In the past, digital artists had to rely largely on stock photos to recreate players’ likenesses for the game. Eventually technology allowed them to use digital images for reference, but the previous camera system was a cumbersome, dome-shaped structure made up mostly of PVC pipes. It wasn’t very portable and the lack of mobility forced the team to get creative in order to capture multiple angles of each player.

"What I used to do is put a player on a stool and then turn the stool slowly as we took pictures," laughed Joe Warren, a senior lighting artist for EA Sports and Madden NFL. "And we had to rely on events like the Pro Bowl to get those pictures since we had a number of players all in the same place."This year, a new camera setup allows them to travel to each team and get digital images of almost every player in the league, making an already authentic image exponentially more accurate www.lolga.com .
