  • Integrate your created VFX into the engine.
  • Develop effects based on play test results and comments from cross-functional team members (debug and optimize).
  • Adapt to feedback received from the community after live launch (in some cases), balancing expectations with limitations.

Skills and Knowledge:

  • Experience in modelling, texturing, lighting, image processing, or related experience
  • Knowledge of 2D art tools (e.g. Photoshop), compositing software (e.g. After Effects or Nuke), 3D software (e.g. Maya or 3DS Max), and game editors (e.g. Unity or Unreal) *
