Another great Assassin’s Creed trailer from Digic. Took a little back-and-forth to get the jumping arrow shot looking good, but I feel they nailed it. Day one of E3 down and the team is in high spirits!

This is awesome! Was it key framed or mocap? Or a mixture of both like the main characters are key frame and the crowds mocap? If its mocap is pretty darn good!
I’m not 100% certain of their workflow, but I can say from earlier animatic versions that the vast majority is mocap. We gave them full access to our ingame animations at the start of this year so they’ve managed to re-capture the look and feel of the fight. The jumping bow we sent them after some keyframe explorations done by our Cinematic Director.
