"This article focuses on the technology for creating the two major workflows of CG environments – CPU rendered film environments and real-time game environments - as driven by the functional requirements of each. The function of a film environment in live action is to seamlessly blend with real-world characters, within a structured narrative. The function of an environment in the game engine is driven by the need to create a CG world in which there is no structured narrative and no restraints on the gamer's viewpoint. The intention of the article is to investigate and compare the difference in workflows of each category. The visual portion will develop the workflows of the CG production by creating an original environment, and the general workflows of creating a CPU rendered CG environment and a real-time CG environment will be demonstrated respectively, which are associated with different software, such as Arnold and Unreal."
