Is matte painting ever used in games? I have never seen matte painting before i think it rocks it out. Is it worth while learning? I haven't started going to school yet for game design. *save roll VS Ubernoob question*

To answer Gabriel J Kessler... Yes matte painting is used in games but more so in the cinematics or pre-compiled sequences. (To what I've experienced... I don't know for the in-engine part). It's always a good thing to know, even if it's just to make great background paintings or back drops.

"even if it's just to make great background paintings or back drops."

You can always do camera maping, so the foreground can be a matte also.
you just need more cameras

James, I'm glad u're the forum leader mate
