Unity has released the full film of The Heretic, its GDC tech demo from last year. Although the short film is only 7-minutes long, the YouTube footage showcases cinematic ambitions built off of its Unity engine.

The video feature’s realistic humans and environments, with the final version of the film being made with the latest stock Unity 2019.3 build. According to a blog post, Unity uses a combination of 3D and 4D scanning to obtain high-quality textures and poses and believable, realistic movement. “The 4D scanned data, which preserves the realism of the actor’s performance, is supplemented by bringing back the microsurface details, wrinkles, pores, etc., obtained from 3D scanning,” the site explains.

The ability of the engine has been pushed to its limit and showcased here narratively, which is a far cry from what Neil Blomkamp was able to produce with the engine in his short film Adam: The Mirror just three short years ago.

Check out The Heretic above and the process of its creation below. Then check everything coming to and leaving Netflix in February 2020.
