It is recently discovered that Microsoft’s Xbox Scarlett promotional film drew on the idea of a 2015 released independent game “Dry Lights” from ANTIVJ Studios. This 2015 ANTIVJ studio project “Dry Light” was made by Xavier Chassaing and senior composer Thomas Vaquie. It was for Sony PS4 platform.
As per reports, Microsoft has borrowed the visual effects of ANTIVJ sparks to illuminate the earth in its own video. In the video, it was showed that it optimizes technologies like dynamic light sources, ambient light obscurations, reflections, and shadows.
It is unclear whether Microsoft completed this work in the house or through a contract. Check out the official Microsoft’s Xbox X series promo,
