Advanced Mixed Reality in Serious Sam VR
Credited as Lead Gameplay Programmer on all of Croteam’s titles shipped in the last decade but doing all sorts of programming work on games, engine and tools. Goran is currently working hard on Serious Sam 4 while doing some work on the side on the recently shipped Serious Sam VR titles.
Building on existing mixed reality techniques that require mixing of game’s foreground and background with chroma keyed video of the player, we went a step ahead and put the player’s video into the game itself, improving both performance and appearance in the process. Doing so we have developed some new techniques for solving camera calibration and video latency issues that we wish to share with the world. This is all available to the public in Croteam’s latest “Serious Sam VR” titles!
