        Really excited for this. I can never get my lighting right so hopefully I can learn through this. Do you have access to an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift? I am curious if there are things that should be done differently in VR.

          Hey, I dont really have access to VR Gear when I also have access to Unreal Also, I sadly cant really go into detail on how we did stuff for the Star Wars VR Mission and to make it even worse, I havent worked with Unreal and VR yet
          However, what I can say based on my experience and also a lot of informations regarding VR that where released by Epic is, forward rendering is definitely the better way to go for now performance wise for a lot of games. This comes with its own limitations in regards to lighting and a lot of features though. The trick then becomes really just to try all you can do to make it still look good somehow. Even if that means to break PBR more often than you might normally would^^

            Alright,

            here we go! The first part of the first part is online! It took super long to upload everything etc. so I will give my best to make part one complete as soon as I can.
            I have to admit that the full video got pretty long in the end and that wasnt planned I will try to make it a bit more streamlined in the future if thats okay with you guys!

            Cool....enough talking! Here you go:


            Cheers!

              Thats cool, I image i can still apply most of your techniques to forward rendered scenes. I am really looking forward to your stuff! I know my partner, the artist, is going to love watching your videos.

                Hey you should totally start adding the videos you make into the Original Post rather than putting them on comments. As this thread grows it'll be much easier for people who have this bookmarked like myself to find the videos :P Just a suggestion

                        Thanks a lot guys and glad you like it! I promise though to be a bit more streamlined with future videos since the first 30mins of the video are really **** slow Also sorry for being sidetracked all the time and getting into so many different things. There is just always so much to talk about

                            Do the videos show working with baked lighting or dynamic lighting?

                              This part discusses dynamic lighting since the scene was already set up for that

                                Thank you very much for your efforts and time to shoot these videos, especially considering how hard it is to allocate resources for such work when being employed full time. It is really great stuff.
                                I just wanted to add a general comment that it might be good to change video description and maybe add an intro to the whole series so that it is more clear what is the video about.
                                For someone, who ends up viewing the video without knowing the background or being aware of this forum thread, it might bit confusing at first glance.
