BTS of Destiny’s Animation


This course discusses the practical challenges in creating the animation system for Destiny plus solutions, lessons learned, and future development. Bungie’s Destiny is a multi-player persistent-world action game that requires responsive character animation as a foundation for core game play. The course summarizes how that goal was achieved in Bungie’s new game engine, emphasizing interaction with the networking model and distributed AI, under a tight CPU budget and memory constraints.
