My responsibility includes:

• Created VFX assets for interactable water using Niagara particle system, Fluid Ninja Live, and Oceanography

• Wrote Blueprints that trigger in-game events when motion tracking camera detects players’ movements

• Troubleshot low frame rates issue by scaling down heavy assets and optimizing inefficient Blueprint 

• Operated and maintained ZED camera and N-Display for a smoother user experience during NYC Climate Week event
