In this 2020 GDC Summer session Respawn Entertainment's Bartlomiej Waszak explains how Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order uses physical simulation blended with authored animations to create high-fidelity character motion.
Waszak offered the audience a concise, practical overview of what makes the character animation in Respawn's 2019 hit tick, with lots of intriguing behind-the-scenes examples and useful tips for fellow game makers.
It was a great talk, and now you can watch it completely free via the official GDC YouTube channel!
